When Richard Scarry, a too honest for his own good real estate agent, discovers the house he's invested in to raise money for his mother's hospital bills is haunted he learns how scary the housing market really is. With the aid of his best friend who refuses to go inside, an exorcist who loves craftsman style architecture, and an eccentric ghost rights activist/blogger waitress, Richard gamely tries to get rid of the house and/or its ghostly inhabitants before it's too late. But when an evil spirit decides to move out of the house and into his body, Richard discovers he has a whole new set of possession problems.
