Are You Ready to Be a Cemetery Neighbor?

Not only are today's home buyers more receptive to living adjacent to cemeteries, say real estate agents, some are even proactively seeking out these locations.

Large, open cemeteries that allow for peaceful strolls are especially popular, rather than densely populated graveyards.

"The views are great," remarks agent Steve Castellon of New York. "The taboo is gone."

Besides the beautiful landscaping, a lot of people like having cemeteries for neighbors because that means that there will not be additional development going up next to them.
