Are you in the market for a new house?
There are always a lot of things to consider when looking to buy a new house: price tag, location, age, how much work is needed to bring it up to par... is it haunted? For some people that is a genuine concern, one that isn't often covered during the walk through with the real estate agent.
While some people are genuinely terrified of finding themselves living in a haunted house, there are still those people out there who actually seek them out. Regardless of which side of the spectrum you fall on (or if you are non-believer altogether), we thought we could give you a heads up on several known haunted properties that are actually up for sale.
Some of these are in price ranges that the average person could never afford, but hey, you can always dream can't ya. Here are 6 reputed haunted houses that are currently on the market.
1. 138 E FULTON STREET, CANTON, MISSISSIPPI: $587,800
This sprawling five bedroom home in Canton, Mississippi was built in 1852 by Dr. James Priestley, and looking at the asking price, you have to wonder what is wrong with it.
Both Dr. Priestley and his wife died in the house, and since then, every owner has reported unexplained paranormal activity in the house, including musical instruments playing by themselves. The home's current owner has stated that he thinks the spirits are actually targeting the members of his family.
2. 13800 W COUNTRY HOUSE ROAD, ALBION, NEW YORK: $730,000
For under $1 million, you can have this six bedroom, six bathroom home that includes five fireplaces, a beautiful library, and even a formal dining room for hosting guests, but it's what you can't see that really changes the deal.
A renovation started in 2006 on the Civil War era home, and it seems to have stirred up a couple of spirits, including a woman in white who haunts the house's hallways. It is thought to be the ghost of Myrtle Carr, who by all accounts seems to be perfectly harmless, but no less terrifying.
3. THE ICE HOUSE, KINCARDINESHIRE, SCOTLAND: $452,400
This beautiful house built into the hillside in Scotland looks like the perfect relaxing retreat, but The Ice House is not all that it seems to be. The Scottish poet, George Beattie, used to live there, and he loved a local heiress, asking her for her hand in marriage. Unfortunately the woman broke off the engagement and Beattie ended up committing suicide in the home's graveyard. Yup, the estate has its own cemetery.
Ghost sightings happen on the regular here, so if you are brave, and looking for a countryside home, this is the place for you.
It only gets creepier from here.
