A Clarksville home that has been on the market for several months and of and on for years, is now getting some new traffic. The latest real estate agents, Toniann Thompsan and Dorothy Havens of Keller Williams,  used a new marketing strategy. The realtors posted on the For Sale sign : "Not Haunted."

Thompson says, " A lot of people on this side of town will say oh my house is haunted or that one Is definitely haunted so we just played with that."

Built in the 1870's, the historic home on 1033 Madison St. is a space of more than 3,00 sq. ft. Recent renovations also complement the home's original features. The new sign is bringing in potential buyers back to back.

The realtors chose to use the disclaimer due to the stigma of old homes having ghosts. Fox 17 spoke with local paranormal researcher, Paul Browning to find out why the theory exists. He says pop culture plays a role.

Paul  Browning says , " People die all the time if you think about this exponentially you almost couldn't buy a house without it being haunted. "
