Yikes.

Part of me says no way, but a (slightly larger) part of me says that all houses want to be homes and there’s no such thing as ghosts.

NO. WAY.

I could never! NEVER! I would have NIGHTMARES!  I couldn’t even walk into the house… seriously, that’s crazy.

I personally could never live in such a place. I’m very freaked out by blood, gore and death in general. Personally, I don’t think its worth saving $75,000 but hey if she’s ok with it then she should take it!

Eek! On one hand, I like the idea of turning something tragic into new energy/new life; I mean it would be nice, karmically, to have a house like that and then fill it with light and happiness.

On the other hand, I keep thinking of Amityville. If I were in the market for a house in this economy, I might be inclined to push those thoughts away! I don’t know.

Heck no!  Though it would be tempting at such a good price, I think I’d develop a fear of the dark.  I might watch too many horror movies but it never turns out well for the new occupants in them so I’d pass!  Silly horror movie cliches aside, its something that would always be present in my mind, how horrible.

I could. The house didn’t murder anyone, it was a person, and he is dead, so he isn’t coming back. I don’t believe in ghosts or anything, and I would pretty much do anything for a deal when it comes to real estate!

Hey you should add a poll to this post. I’m curious!

I don’t know.  I do somewhat believe in ghosts so I would be hesitant in things living somewhere like that. 

But then again, what happens if you bought a house that a murder happened in it 10 or 20 years ago. The previous owners definitely wouldn’t have to disclose that information.  You honestly probably wouldn’t have known until you found out about it.

Sometimes it better that I not know about that kind of stuff.

Definitely not. But I think it’s a personal choice, so I wouldn’t judge someone for doing it…just wouldn’t come over their house at night 🙂

haha I just thought of Amityville too! I got really scared with that movie…it depends on if she is ok wiht that…i know that some people are afraid of ghosts/bad karma…and they would never live there…but if she can just think that a house is a house and thats that…then it would be fine…I think I would be a little nervous…and i dont believe in ghosts and supernatural stuff.

Yeah, I could. I can be freakishly practical, and $75,000 is totally enough to bring out the practical side in me.

Nope, my imagination would get the best of me!  I would have to sleep with the lights on every night, lol!
