well its supposed to be haunted.murder,suicide about 12years ago.the last two families moved out because of the ghost of the murderer who killed his wife then himself. he is meant to appear at the end of the bed at night (master bedroom),just stares at you then walks away and disappears. he is meant to be very solid looking! the house has not been lived in for over two years,so hence it is a bit run down. so over the next six weeks i will be ripping it apart and doing it up ready to rent out. i will stay there at night by myself,and will have my video cam by the bed, ready for any spooky goings on! and hopefully,i might have something worth posting in the near future! bought the house from auction,knew nothing of the history,untill i met the neighbours! still would of bought it though,at the price. thanks dd

Don't get scared now, haha.
I'd love to own a notoriously haunted house, you just make sure you keep us up to date with any spooky goings on and keep that cam recording, hope for your sake nothing too bad happens but keep us informed.

How freaky.
Why by yourself? I'd to have someone else present just in case.

That is so cool!


I'm suprised theres not more of a market for haunted houses, surely theres lots of paranormal enthusiasts that would give thier right arm for somewhere like that?

Good luck anyway.

The mental anguish that envelopes your thoughts can be hard to cope with.
Hauntings are a strange, strange thing

Don't get your hopes up...

Whoever sold you the house might have just been making things up to make the house sound notorious so it would sell faster. But hey I could be wrong, have fun with it.

The second house that I lived in as a kid had... something. My mother was convinced that it was haunted. She told me that occasionally there'd be something black in the corner of her eye, some kind of presence. My father agreed. and someone once saw a black dog in the house - despite the fact that we didn't have a black dog.
I'm sitting here staring at the screen and wondering if I've gone round the twist in telling that. Doesn't sound like much does it? But she swears there was something there.

soul_failure: They specifically state that they didn't know if it's history UNTIL the house was purchased. This wasn't said by the seller at any point.

I'm quite envious of the owner of this house now. Living inside of a haunted house would be a truely enlightening experience.

I hope the bad vibes aren't too heavy. Especially since it was a murder-suicide. You might get a high turn-over of renters if many of the renters are sensitive to that sort of thing. Might be a depressing place for them.
Would you tell your future tenants about the history of the house?
Just curious.

I'll advise you to have at least one other person present with you while you sleep over. It helps in more ways than one.

I agree with the "buddy system." At the very least they will be there to mentally support you, and they could end up saving your life (assuming that you injure yourself if something happens and you panic).

One rule for ghost hunting is to never do it alone. Lets add that to the rules of sleeping in a haunted house.

Sounds interesting,
I agree with the others i would take another person,

as company and also to validate anything that happens,

2 sets of eyes can be better than one,


Also take a tape recorder, never know what may appear on that,

Good luck! and stay safe,

I sure hope you will tell your tenants about it being haunted before you rent it to them. I would be awfully mad if I rented a haunted house and the owner didn't give me a chance to know about it.

Dig, have you had any personal experiences with the house yet? Felt any negative energy or such?

Sorry, I'm kind of a excited for you.

I'd have the EMF detectors, cams, IR thermometers, and everything out in the first hour if I owned such a place!

-Calms down-

I'd suggest writing down ANYTHING that seems out of the ordinary. Try to remember/write down as much as possible, then compare from day to day and week to week.

Get a first aid kit, i got a feeling your going to need it while renovating, you know smashing a thumb or bumping your noggin trying to get a look where that noise came from

Hehe. One of the places I lived in was supposed to be haunted. Man it took a lot of fixing up to do before I could feel safe! After a while though, I kinda nixed the idea. Then again, we didn't have a particular story to go along with it. It was simply a neighborhood inside joke. Have fun!

I can assure you that it is very frightning.

My wife and I bought this house almost 3 years ago and were NOT told that there had been people that died here 6 months before we moved in.

It has been HELL living in this house . Anything that could go wrong, or anything that would break down has and it continues today.

We have lost all of our savings and maxed out all of our credit cards repairng things in this house and the worst thing about it is that we can't seem to get rid of this house.

We have put it up for sale 2 times. No offers.

We have offered it to investers and they don't want it.

It is a very nice neighborhood and the house is very pretty inside and outside.

I hope you have better luck with your house.

Every house I have ever lived in has been haunted. Every ... last ... stinking ... one. It's not enlightening. It's a pain in the neck. They wake you up out of a sound sleep with their heavy footsteps coming up the stairs; they knock on doors in during the day and in the middle of the night; they rattle and explore anything new that you bring into the house; it's a freak'n pain in the neck!!!

Seriously .. every place has spirits and spooks. Even brand new homes. All you have to do is slow down; quiet your soul; and pay attention.
