With the holiday of haunt right around the corner, RealtyTrac took a look at a segment of properties where the haunting may hit too close to home for neighbors and potential buyers. More than 22,000 single family homes nationwide are vacant and have a homeowner who is now deceased, according to an analysis of public record data. That’s one in every 5,973 housing units nationwide, but there are more than 20 zip codes where that ratio is less than 1 in every 175 housing units.
