All the lights are on in my home office as I compose my post about haunted houses. Still, I have the chills and I try to catch the reflection from my computer monitor to see what is behind me, hopefully nothing or no one. Haunted houses and paranormal activity simply creep me out, yet I am very intrigued by real life haunted houses.

Pros:

  • Put a use to the Ouija Board collecting dust in the closet
  • Receive a discount off the purchase price of the home
  • Great for authentic Halloween parties
  • House comes with an invisible friend
  • Prestige of owning a haunted house

Cons:

  • Noises could wake you up in the middle of the night
  • Guests never want to stay the night
  • Reoccurring nightmares
  • Never alone in the house
  • Difficult to sell the home

Even though I don't "believe," I could never live in a haunted house. I can't even get through the beginning of a relatively scary movie or an amateur haunted house. Could you make a full-time haunted house your new home?
