5 Ghost Towns You Can Buy Right Now, If You Dare

The sheer quantity of abandoned villages in America has an unsettling quality. Wikipedia claims that there are more than a thousand of these strange, deserted towns hidden across the nation.

We located a few of these numerous abandoned locations that are for sale right now. Purchasing a ghost town demands steely nerves since the buyer must not only ward off any lingering ghosts but also make plans to do whatever it takes to restore the land to some semblance of life.

Five places are worth looking at if you think you can handle the pressure of closing on a ghostly sale. These are not locations for the timid, therefore, we advise you to approach a transaction with caution. Ideally, during the daytime.
