Looking for a spook-tacular deal on a house this Halloween season? Well, you’re in luck if you’re eyeing a property with the ominous number 13. PropertyPal records reveal that houses numbered 13 are on average eerily cheaper than other numbers.
Famously associated with bad luck, the number 13 is often blamed for misfortune due to its unfortunate placement right after the supposedly perfect number 12. Some people are so superstitious that they won’t close a deal or move into a new home on the dreaded Friday the 13th.
In the spirit of Halloween, many new-build developments even skip the number 13 altogether, and you’d have a better chance of finding a ghost in your closet than an apartment block with a 13th floor.
So, if you don’t have Triskaidekaphobia (fear of the number 13) and can casually shrug off superstitions, this Halloween might just be your opportunity to score a wickedly good deal on a home.
