So my sis-in-law, Liz, has been telling me that I should do a blog post entitled "Disclosing the Ghost" - so here it is! :)
As those of you that have been reading for the last week or so know...my previous abode was haunted. While we were trying to sell the damn place, things got pretty crazy and so I asked my realtor; "Do I have to tell the buyers that this place is haunted?" Guess what her reply was...she didn't look at me like I was crazy, she didn't ask me why I was asking...she simply said, "well, did the person die IN the house?" My jaw hit the floor.
That is how all of these movies where the family buys their "dream" home and then get killed by the malevolent spirits are plausible! No one told them a family had been murdered in the front lawn - they didn't have to! Or better yet, an entire family is killed IN the house? Tear it down and build a new house ON THE SAME LAND! You won't have a problem selling it because you DO NOT have to disclose it!
So it probably behooves all of us looking to purchase a home, to go to the library and search old newspaper articles for the heinous crime that was committed in our "dream" home; or in my case - the crazy old fools that lived there but died in a nursing home down the street.
