I don’t usually post in this forum and I’m not really looking for an answer to anything, but I wanted to share something that happened to me
today. I’m curious to see what people who visit this forum think might have happened – if anything at all.
Today I was house hunting with my realtor. He wanted to show me an older home that was under renovation and unoccupied. It is banked owned, so
don’t really know the history of it. Upon entry of the home, I could see that it was indeed under renovation – you could smell the fresh paint
and new carpet. But the home felt odd. Just not very comfy and it was not calling me to move in, like many houses do. I thought this was because it
was under reno and had no furnishings in it. It was literally a blank white canvas. And it was a very bright house – lots of light.
I went down into the [fully finished] basement which looked like renovation was complete. But it just felt odd down there. Didn’t know why. Again,
I attributed it to no furnishings and just the emptiness of it. But I just felt uncomfortable being down there by myself (realtor was upstairs).
Walked around the basement and entered what appeared to be a bedroom. As soon as I walked into the room the hair all over me stood up and I got
goosebumps and just got this oppressive sinking feeling. Against the wall was a small bookshelf, which was odd, because the entire house was empty.
Sitting on top of the bookshelf was a small framed photo of a little black girl. That was it. The room had not been renovated – meaning no new
paint or flooring. It looked old and untouched. I walked over to the closet to open it and as I closed the door I saw on the door a child’s name
scratched into the door. I don’t even recall the name, because I was so spooked and freaked out that I left the room and quickly went upstairs.
I am not saying this house was haunted. But I looked at a dozen houses today, some empty, some lived in. This house gave me the creeps and I have
never experienced anything like this before. The best way I can describe the feelings I had was very “Blair Witch-ish”.
I asked my realtor if he knew of anything odd that happened in this house – like someone dying. He said he was unaware of anything. But something
was not right with this house. Im not even sure I believe in “haunted houses”, though I believe in the supernatural (related??). But if I were
to ever believe, it would be because of this experience.
Again, not really asking for any help or advice. Just wanted to share my story because it’s so fresh on my mind and so odd for something like this
to happen to ME. I don't spook easily (and I was very spooked) and again, never experienced anything like this before.
