It may seem kind of creepy, but there are ghost towns for sale across the country. And there are interested buyers as well.
Some people looking to buy ghost towns are attracted to a dream of "owning" a piece of history and the stories that come with it - of becoming part of that history and part of the stories that are told about the area.

In the current housing market, some people find it difficult to sell their homes. Downsizing to a house payment that is less than the amount that they are currently paying can be the only option for a homeowner whose home simply isn't selling.
