Newsflash: Are houses near cemeteries harder to rent out or sell?

Basically, the title’s it. My husband and I are on the house hunt and there’s a house we really like, but it’s across the street from a grave yard. NJ, USA if that’s relevant. It’s a 2-family we hope to live in one unit and rent the other.Husband is hesitant about it and fears we’ll have a harder time renting it out because the cemetery is “creepy.” fwiw, it’s a well-maintained cemetery. I like the idea of living near something so quiet and with relatively little traffic — if I was looking to rent, I think I’d take the cemetery over say, a school or a shopping plaza. But he might be right, so I wanted to get some opinions about whether a cemetery is a big deal for a renter or prospective buyer.thanks!
