Maryland Sellers Don’t Have To Disclose Hauntings

Must home sellers disclose ghostly activity when selling their homes? Apparently not in Maryland!  A few days before Halloween, Kristine Henry wrote a fascinating piece for the The Baltimore Sun that’s a good read: 3BR, 2BA, 1 Ghost.

I have often been asked if ghosts only inhabit older homes, or if someone could get rid of a ghost by tearing down a house and rebuilding it. (The answer is “maybe”.)  The first part of this article discusses the plight of a woman who bought a brand new townhome, only to discover later that it was haunted.

This is a well written article which covers the issue of real estate disclosure law in Maryland and quotes a few experts, such as intuitive psychic Nancy L. Fox and investigative medium Laine Crosby as well as Realtors and a real estate attorney, about the potential of selling a haunted piece of real estate and what to do about it.

Ghost Stories on Facebook

My buddy Gary Wiens started a Facebook group for Silicon Valley called “Creepy San Jose”. The idea is for people to share their experiences of haunted spots in and around Santa Clara County (the biggest city of which is San Jose).

One gal shared a couple of ghost stories there – to check them out, folks registered with Facebook (it’s free) can visit the Creepy San Jose group on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=18241159264 and then surf to the discussion board.

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
