    Do you get an uneasy feeling in your house? This site claims by type in your address, they can tell you if a death occurred there. Not sure how accurate it can be but..... http://www.diedinhouse.com

    I don't believe in hauntings, although I'd love to be able to haunt others when I'm dead.

    By the way, my partner does and went to a tag sale at the Amityville Horror House. I didn't want to wait on line so I stayed outside and walked around the yard and garage. We have a souveignier in our living room.

    Well, the house does not seem to be haunted, though I know someone did die here. She was a member of the family that built the house and I know which room she died in. Natural causes...old age.

    I'm wondering how this site builds it's database ..
    If it's from Police Reports..
    Wouldn't it be easier to just request reports involving your address??

    I have wondered about this sometimes when staying or dining in very old buildings in Europe. Statistically, people must have died in just about all of them. And up until the 20th century, that was almost always from infectious disease. Yeah, I wonder how many people died of plague right here in this restaurant?

    We actually have the old pioneer family cemetery on the property. And plenty of ashes of more recent people have been scattered in the wind.

    I once lived in a tiny little house where an old man died ... it always felt dark in the house and I could never sleep in the bed room he died in. It totally creeped me out.

    People die all the time. Do you get creeped out in hospitals and funeral parkour a or churches where funeral masses are held?

    For $12 I don't care!

    In CA when buying property a death in/on the property has to be disclosed, regardless of cause within the last three years.

    I was informed of a death at my place. I assumed, being in Palm Springs, it was an elderly death. But it was a lesbian who committed suicide (pills) in the kitchen. Everything had been redone since: new engineered floors, paint, counter tops, etc.
    I think she's glad I'm here! No bad feelings at all.

    My ex and I looked at house in San Diego several years ago. It was a good price! But the ??? blood spatter on the kitchen wall was a turn off ;-(
    BAD vibe!

    When I was a child in the 1950s I sometimes played in our basement, especially in the cold winters. Part of it was unfinished, and around 1957 my father installed a large custom-built table down there for my Lionel trains, where I'd spend hours.

    But I was always afraid, suspecting some "thing" was watching me in the dark corners. And every now and then I'd feel a deathly chill touch me, and I'd go screaming up the stairs, often running into my grandmother's arms.

    In 1968 I had a very bad motorcycle accident that smashed my head, physically disfiguring me, robbing me of my musical ability, and destroying much of my intellect. I became the dull dummy I am today.

    That Winter in despair over my fate I attempted suicide twice. Each time I choose this one particular spot in the basement, and each time I failed. In the Spring of 1969 I enlisted in the Army as an alternative to suicide, figuring the Vietcong would succeed where I had failed.

    Forward 30 years. My sister was sharing with me family secrets I knew nothing about, following our father's death, our mother already gone. She told me that our grandfather had committed suicide in 1947, 2 years before I was born, contrary to the "official" story that he had a heart attack. And in that very spot in the basement that had always frightened me. And where I chose to end my own life.

    I can't imagine what his widow, my poor grandmother felt, when I'd run up those basement stairs into her arms, screaming that "A ghost is down there! He touched me!"

    I don't know what to believe anymore. I want to reject the idea of ghosts, but... icon_question.gif

    I don't think I'll ever understand people's infatuation with whether someone died in their house years ago or if it's "haunted." I'll piss all over the walls; it's my house now. icon_twisted.gif


    Just an fyi I do not believe in the supernatural world.

    wouldn't bother me, as long as they weren't murdered. That would creep me out.

    I have a condo I bought a guy died in but it was never occupied by his spirit. My neighbor had two guys die within a week of each other from alcohol related effects. So they had something fall off the fireplace mantle which was firmly planted, and they heard noises like cabinets closing etc. But it was probably letting them know that they were still around.

    I had an encounter with a spirit years ago. So encounters with spirits are real. It doesn't have to be a haunting like in the movies. I think the evil hauntings are not very common IMO.

    I grew up in a small suburb of San Francisco and we had only about 9,000 people. I'm aware of a number of suicides and a few murders that happened near our house. Some were teenage suicides, a few were older people who were facing illness or financial ruin. Some were drug cases. I've been in some of the houses where these things have happened and it is a bit weird, but it wouldn't stop me from living in a house.

    There was a quote I heard in the mid 90's by a well known athlete who said:

    "Hey - - people die every day!"

    Only my mother. If there were ghosts, she would be the banshee out of hell to get my damn freeloader father out.

    I already know my grandpa died in the same room I sleep in. But Im OK with that because he was a cool guy, I would enjoy having his ghost around.

    Someone died at the last place I lived in. I didn't notice any spooky things happening.

    Here in New Orleans, real estate agents have started stating on the signs that the place is not haunted. The building 2 blocks away from me has a "not haunted" sign on it.
