Would You Buy a Haunted House?

In the News

Most people wouldn't, but someone has snapped this one up, after it had been on the market for 12 years

What do you think of this?

Yes, as long as there wasn't a series of unexplained deaths and it was cheaper than surrounding property. Although, I don't like the look of this particular property, so wouldn't be interested in purchasing 👻

Lol I have to admit I couldn't see the appeal of this property either. It’s perhaps in a lucrative area, but I don’t like the look of it at all, regardless of its history

I used to live near The Cage, interesting building but so tiny, wouldn't pay 240 for it. I have no problems living in a haunted house, think it would encourage me to buy it more, plus they are lower asking prices too if not infamous like this one

I wouldn't mind. I'm very much an atheist and not believing in a spiritual existence and wouldn't mind to be proved wrong at least in my own mind but then if I'm proved wrong I've got to live in a haunted house which isn't so good. I'm 99.9% sure nothing of any spiritual nature will happen there. Also I don't think you should use the term 'snapped this one up' in relation to a house that has been on the market for 12 years.

I was being sarcastic. Anything that is on the market for that long is usually not desirable

Absolutely not, the thought terrifies me!! I don't believe in ghosts and I don't really want to be proved otherwise!

No, I wouldn't as I've had too many spirtual/occult/ghosty/whatever/UFO/younameit experience and I know if anyone is going to have an angry ghost throwing things at their head its going to be me. ✝️ ☠️ 👻

I watched Insidious last night and I wouldn't buy a house with a wooden staircase and a resident demon

I do't see why I wodlnt buy a haunted house, however some, to be honest are way to haunted and cursed. I think of Jimmy Page's and Aleister Crowelys house Boleskine, Scotland - I'd never buy that, it's burned down three times.

That article, about "The cage" is old hat, they have made a living I understand suggesting its haunted, and they lived their a long time before they decided to sell it.

there's a couple who are selling burnt bits of brick etc from Boleskine house to try and fund the rebuilding. Why can't that house just be destroyed and that's the end of it? I hate Aleister Crowley and even though I love Led Zep, I really don't see what Jimmy Page worshipped about that man Crowley.

I am the most skeptical person but my sister rented a house once and her kids were that scared of the house they had to move out after 1 year. My two year old niece used to cry and say she could see a burning man. There dog would randomly start barking at something in the hall way. Every Friday without fail (when I was babysitting) the lights would flickers on and off. I once looked after my niece she was looking after something in the corner. She left the room saying ‘he’s watching us’. Her older boy hated the house too. Said he felt weird there. I did a bit of investigating. Only strange thing I could find was one year the house sold for £267,000. Exactly a year after it sold at auction for 88,000. A massive price drop. After I found that out husband said stop looking as you might find out something upsetting. I am honestly still a skeptic but there was something so off about that off I don’t think I could live in a ‘haunted house’.

That sounds like a terrible and horrifying experience. They say kids and animals can see things...scary stuff

It was the weirdest thing ever. They moved and kids were perfectly happy and back to normal in the new house too. The dog stopped barking and howling at nothing.

Definitely, then I’d rent it out for all those crazy people who love to be scared outta their minds. Personally I couldn’t put myself through it. Fun to watch tho
