Buying a Haunted HouseOctober 4, 2007
Can ghosts really help a house sell? According to Holden Lewis – they sure can. That is, assuming they are “friendly ghosts.
I can tell you that many times I have told people that some homes have a “feeling” about them. You can sense a house that has been neglected and you can also sense a house that has been well-loved and cared for. Some homes just sag from neglect. Ask any experienced or long-time real estate agent and they will know exactly what I am talking about. I have also been in homes that gave me such a creepy feeling that we felt the urge to leave immediately. Call it a ghost or just a house with bad karma, but I would’nt stay!
While I have never sold a haunted house, I wouldn’t question the theory that some homes might have stories and episodes that are hard to explain. And I do know this, if I sold a house that’s haunted, I sure hope the “invisible” residents are friendly! Happy Halloween!
