What Is Your Spookiest Real Estate Story?

October 11, 2013  |  by Ellen

Screen Shot 2013-10-08 at 7.45.59 PMWe’re looking for your eerie, creepy, and all together kooky real estate stories to compile in a post later on this month. Have you ever hosted an open house with strange noises or doors that would open or close at random? Ever had to work to convince people a home wasn’t haunted (such as the signage this agent had to use)? We don’t have to mention the address or any other personal details—just tell us the spooky details for some Halloween fun. Please send your stories to and we’ll feature them on this blog.

We had so much fun last year learning about your spooky real estate stories on our Facebook page last Halloween and are looking forward to it again this year!

    A client and I went into a old boarded detached house in a rough area of Baltimore. After prying the boards off we went in. Although it was pitched dark My client eagerly ran up the rickety steps into a bedroom down the hall. After only seconds of him being upstairs I heard him let out a blood curdling scream then all of a sudden he jumped down what must have been at least 12 steps and landed in front of me with a distorted look of terror on his face. I took of running first and leaped down the front porch steps and fell on my stomach. When I hit the ground I turned around on My back to see my client jumping over me. I quickly got to my feet and began to back up out of the yard when a man appeared in the door laughing hysterically saying im sorry. Come to find out it was just a local homeless guy who was squating in the house. When my client had opened the door upstairs the guy had put the flashlight under his face which made him seem other worldy to my client. It took all three of us about 20 minute to stop laughing and to pick up all the change and other things that flew out of my pockets as I was writhing on the ground earlier.

    I scheduled a showing appt with a listing agent. The phone was breaking up and all I could get from the call was that it was okay to show, everyone should be out and that “one” of the keys in the lockbox is for the front door. As I opened the combo lockbox a key ring with at least 12 keys fell out. The townhome had locked doors to each room and unexpected areas (living room and dining room) were now enclosed rooms with locked doors. We had no issues seeing all rooms in the bsmt and main level. We came to the last bedroom on the upper floor and I couldnt get it opened. But as I tried one last time, it opened slightly about an 1/2 inch. As it opened all I could see was a man’s eye glaring right at me. I apologized and my client and I ran off!

    I inspected a home today and noticed the deadbolt at the front door locked as soon as I closed the door. The blinds on the windows all began to close. Slightly freaked out, I realized the home had a "smart" system installed and all of these activities were automated electronically. Not, super naturally.

    I've checked out many creepy real estate all around USA and many Asian countries as well. People around those freaking real estates still says that some type of evil spirit lives on those houses and they hear sound so often outside from those real estates. Now that seems to me quite creepy indeed. Thanks.
