Grave humour: House next to cemetery has 'quiet neighbours'

Last Updated Sep 13, 2017 at 7:00 pm AST

DEWITT, Mich. – How’s this for curb appeal: A Michigan real estate agent selling a house next to a cemetery is promoting it with a sign that says “quiet neighbours.”

Shane Broyles says the message immediately came to mind when he saw the four-bedroom house in DeWitt, which is in the middle of the state near Lansing. He says his grandparents knew a man who lived next to a cemetery and joked about it.

Broyles told the Lansing State Journal that he hadn’t previously used humour to market a house. But he says “there’s not much point to life” without some fun.

The seller, Deborah Perrin, likes the “quiet neighbours” sign. She says she can guarantee there won’t be a new subdivision going up in the cemetery.
