    It wouldn’t bother me living right next to one, much less living far enough away that I couldn’t see it from my home. And it’s not a run down janky one? That’s all the better.

    @Ryansgirl:  The ONLY reason it might bother me is if there is a lot of traffic because of it!

    @Ryansgirl:  I use to rent a townhouse with some roommates and accross the street was a cemetary and funeral home. The townhouse was BEAUTIFUL, actually nicer than the home my FI and I own now. Our house sat up on a hill so we didn’t have to look directly at it from our windows. It was beautifully kept land and was actually famous where many former Presidents are burried. It didn’t bother us one bit.

    Here’s a pic

    I do not have a problem with that in the slightest, but then again I don’t know anyone “sensitive to spirits”.

    I did try to sell a house and had an offer fall through once the wife realized the house was a block from a cemetary. I thought that was a stupid reason, but ended up getting a better offer, so no harm no foul.

    haha! That’s my thinking too. I hate getting stuck in or around a funeral procession. Imagine trying to get out of your driveway.. Yeesh.

    I wouldn’t mind being near it other than the fact that there maybe lots of traffic very often.

    @Ryansgirl:  my only concern would be traffic related, but I work next to a funeral home and really don’t even notice a ton of traffic so it probably wouldn’t stop me! At least funeral homes usually look very nice, are kept up well, and have lovely landscaping! There could be waay worse neighbors to have!

    I wouldn’t care if I had a driveway! FI and I live pretty close to one now, and they take up ALL the parking spots on the street (we live in the city and there’s really only street parking, unless you want to pay an arm and a leg for private parking). And it’s not like you can be angry at someone who’s family member or friend just died!

    @Ryansgirl:  The only thing that would make me nervous is the parking/traffic situation. The last thing you want is difficulty getting to work on time because there is a huge funeral procession leaving at the same time. 

    As for the “creepy” factor, no, it wouldn’t bother me.
