Is Your Historic Home Haunted?

I have had people call me in the past for historic homes I have listed, asking if the house is haunted? It seems the Victorian Queen Anne homes get this question more than any, especially if they are Gothic in style. I can’t help but laugh a little to the person on the other end of the line, but always follow up and ask them why they want to know.

Believe it or not, some buyers WANT the home to be haunted! And if the house isn’t haunted, they don’t want it. Now I like the show “Haunted” on cable (can’t remember what station it is on) because there can be some really freaky stuff out there. So after watching the spooky things that happen to people, I really don’t think I ever want to live in haunted house.

Seeing as Minneapolis and Saint Paul have plenty of old homes, I have the feeling there are some really good haunted stories. If you have any, I would love to feature them on this blog!

For some good reading, fellow blogger, Mary Pop-Handy has a site dedicated to Haunted Real Estate. Check out the video below for a good haunted laugh!

Compliments to Laurie Manny for the above video.
