Buying & Selling Haunted Homes: Going High Tech

Bonnie Vent, of SD Paranormal, emailed me yesterday about her new approach to helping buyers and sellers of haunted real estate, so I thought I’d pass this on to you. I have her OK to copy and paste from the email. – Mary Pope-Handy

Hi Mary,

I have taken my haunted house listings to the next level.  I have a radio spot called “Paranormal News” and I am selling ad spots for those that wish to sponsor the show.  The first ad sold was from a woman in Indiana that has a haunted house for sale.  She is thrilled with the results since the ad goes out to the paranormal enthusiast communities; a targeted audience for any haunted property. 

The audio feeds are currently playing on:  

Para X Radio network –

Ghostly Talk Radio –

Coming soon will be Planet Paranormal –

As well as ITunes, Yahoo and Google and several podcast directories as podcasts.

The feeds are also stored indefinitely on my own podcast page:

The text feeds are seen by thousands as they are on many paranormal websites, several Yahoo Groups also receive the feeds and some people also subscribe via email.  They all receive updates automatically every time I update the feed. 

Here are a few examples: 

Please pass this along to clients and fellow agents that are interested in buying and selling haunted property.  If they are interested in sponsoring a broadcast or placing an ad they can reach me at  I can do the ad for them or they can send a mp3 file which I will incorporate into the show. 

There are plans to turn this into a radio show.  This will of course depend on how much of a response we receive. 

Thx so much,

Bonnie Vent

Thank You, DAR in San Jose!

The Daughters of the American Revolution in San Jose, CA, had a talk on Haunted San Jose and the panelists were Deb Wible, Adrienne Foster, and Mary Pope-Handy

The San Jose chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution asked my friend Deb Wible to speak at their meeting last Saturday about “Haunted San Jose”. Deb invited me, and her good friend Adrienne Foster (who does wonderful reviews of haunted hotels on to join us and make it a panel presentation.

It was lots of fun, and the members of this group had a lot of details on the historical aspects of the locations discussed.

Thank you, Daughters of the American Revolution, for hosting us. We truly enjoyed our visit with you.
