Last year we did an article for potential home-buyers telling them about opportunities to buy real-life haunted houses around the world. Surprisingly nobody took us up on these offers, so we decided to create a brand new list of haunted houses on the market.
If you have some money and don’t fear the previous owners lingering around in spectral form, these homes are just what you’re looking for!
1217 Marion St, Dunmore, PA – $181,365.
Realtors claim that this old house has ghosts, but that they’re “nothing serious”. Sure, it’s got phantom footsteps, knocking on the doors, and even a mysterious figure appearing in the bathroom mirror, but no big deal. Then there’s the trifle matter of a phantom scream heard at precisely 3:13 a.m. every single night, but you know, don’t worry about it.
Allyn Mansion, Delavan, WI – $1.2 million.
This late-1800s mansion was the home of the Allyn family for quite some time before Mr. Allyn died while reading mail in the parlor in 1913. Since then, reports of pages turning themselves and the occasional cough can be heard from that parlor, as Mr. Allyn eternally answers his letters. He’s an excellent roommate.
Pottstown Victorian, Pottstown, PA – $176.000.
The real estate agents of this home claim that it may be haunted, but they invite potential home buyers to take a tour in order to learn its story first hand.
Ann Starrett Mansion, Port Townsend, WA – $750,000.
Built in 1889 by George Starrett for his wife Ann, this mansion features a tower dome, a solar calender, and the occasional visitation from the spirits of the once-proud (and now definitely dead) owners.
McRaven Tour Home, Vicksburg, MS – $575,000.
This Civil War-era house is said to boast a history of death. One of the former owners, John H. Bobb, is said to have died violently by the hands of Union troops. Both he and a woman who died in one of the bedrooms during childbirth are said to walk the halls of what is considered to be the most haunted home in Mississippi.
The Dakota, New York, NY, $14.5 million.
The infamous location of John Lennon’s murder was considered to be haunted long before he and Yoko made it their home in Manhattan. Lennon himself was said to have seen the ghost of a crying lady. She’s still seen by inhabitants to this day.
