When Your House Gives Buyers the Creeps Published on May 4, 2011 by Paranominal
We’ve all had the experience of walking into a place and feeling as though something was not right. Our skin tingles, our hearts beat faster, and a knot forms in the stomach. Usually this occurs without any rational explanation for the feelings.
We call this inexplicable fear ‘the creeps,’ and we use it to describe how we feel when we encounter people or places that are covered in negative energy. It’s a good idea to trust your instincts when they’re telling you to get away, but what do you do if you’re trying to sell a house that creeps out potential buyers?
If you or your family has felt ill at ease in your home, then you can be sure that others will find the atmosphere unsettling as well. In order to clear the air, so to speak, you need to figure out what’s causing the negative vibes in the first place. This may not be easy, but you need to know what you’re dealing with in order to get rid of it.
If an uncanny feeling has been in the house since the day you moved in, it’s possible that something traumatic happened there in the past, and the energy imprinted itself on the property. It might be interesting to do a little research into the history of the house to see if anything bad ever happened there, or whether the land itself was ever used as a burial ground.

I lived in an "active" house - the house showed us its stuff the first night we were there - flaring fireplace that should have been burned out hours before, sound of someone doing something in the kitchen. I had mixed feelings about who/whatever was living there with us - at times it seemed quaint and OK. Other times I'd awaken with my heart pounding, with the fading sound of a scream in my ears - me? them? I was never sure. My brother visited us and told me that the front bedroom was scarey. He was ex military and not prone to flights of fancy.
When I went into labor and sat up all night I felt I got in touch with "the old woman". She obviously had had babies and told me to save my strength and get some sleep. (I didn't. The birth was stalled by a bad presentation and big baby - two days later I had a C section.) She also had comforted a 4 year old house guest - talked to her in the morning while we slept in (didn't know much about children then). The girl was happy to have had the company and wanted to talk to her again.
I started to do a "removal" - following someone else's ritual and half-way through felt embarrassed - like kicking your old Grannie to the curb because she wandered around a bit at night. I said (to no one obvious), "OK this makes me feel very bad. Tell you what - you don't scare people anymore and we'll all live here together. Why not? After that things quieted down.
The house was built in 1903 and in those days people had babies at home, died at home, and buried their relatives and those little children that fell to childhood illnesses nearby. Before we left, we added a cat and a dog burial to the mix.
Funny last part - the people who bought the house decided on it on the basis of the lilacs in the front yard. We closed the deal OUTSIDE of the house.
