Forgive the rumor-mongering, but emails about a ghost in the prime Golden Triangle neighborhood of Saratoga, California, are finding their way to my inbox.
The word is that an owner passed away many months ago and the home is being fixed up (or remodeled) for sale. (When done it will be worth somewhere between 1.4 and 2 million dollars is my best guess.)
According to a neighbor:
“Contractors have been in there and report unanimously that a ghost lives upstairs. It looks exactly like the elderly person who lived and died there.”
No, I won’t give you the address. And no, the house is not yet on the market. But buyers beware, the owner of this home died quite awhile ago, and if it goes past 3 years, the sellers will not have to volunteer that a death occured on the property. But if you ask, they’ll have to answer truthfully.
It wouldn’t hurt to knock on the neighbors’ doors and ask about the home before deciding to purchase it. A lot of buyers do that for any home.
“I’m writing to you in the hope that my family’s experience with spirits/lost souls may help some of your clients regain a peaceful home or be able to purchase a home that has unwanted paranormal activity. We moved into a home in 2010 that was haunted (noisily and nightly) by several spirits. Through the use of a painting, we were able to quieten their activity and, we believe, provide a ‘path’ for those spirits to move on. We wish to freely help others who may have similar disturbances in their homes. Any comment or feedback would be greatly appreciated. Our story is on the following website www.peteroosia.webs.com“
