7 Real-Life Haunted Houses For Sale That Are Brimming With Nope

I'm stress-vomiting just thinking about them.

Price: $1,125,000

The Biggest Nope: This home is on the market once again after the previous owners refused to even move in. Instead of living there peacefully, they got several ominous letters from "The Watcher," who claimed to be the guardian of the house. "The Watcher" sent notes to the owners saying things like, "Do you need to fill the house with the young blood I requested? Once I know their names I will call to them and draw them to me." The police have looked into these claims and have yet to find the identity of "The Watcher."

2. The Stardust Ranch, Buckeye, Arizona

Price: $3,350,000

The Biggest Nope: The previous owner passed away, but that's not who's sticking around. Sylvester Beckett, the man who constructed the home in 1871, allegedly still haunts his house. The previous owner claims that the ghost of Mr. Beckett is benevolent, and all he does is "take sheets off the bed, open doors, and rip down paintings." I don't know about you, but that's still enough to give me heebie-jeebies.

4. The Exorcist author's house, Bethesda, Maryland

Got a spare $3.2m? Buy yourself a Halloween gift! 'Exorcist' author William Peter Blatty's house is for sale:…

Price: $3,320,000

The Biggest Nope: This is the house of William Peter Blatty, author of The Exorcist. Blatty's son, Peter, died in the house at the age of 19. Blatty's wife, Julie, said that Peter's presence can still be sensed in the house. Blatty wrote Finding Peter: A True Story of the Hand of Providence and Evidence of Life After Death based off of his experiences with his son's spirit.

Price: $99,900

The Biggest Nope: Although this is the most affordable house on the list, the listing site says the previous owner doesn't want anyone removing anything from the house because spirits are attached to what was left behind. Also, the third floor bathroom is completely sealed and apparently nobody knows why. I'm no expert, but I don't think it's a good idea to say "Beetlejuice" three times in this house. If you want to get a taste of the haunted life here, you can book an overnight stay.

Price: $2,900,000

The Biggest Nope: Several spirits allegedly haunt this house. There's a legend that a woman lost her baby and then took her life in one of these rooms. Now, people claim to hear her call out for help. Another tale states that two guard dogs set to patrol the mansion committed suicide after jumping out of a third-story window. Now, it's converted into a bed and breakfast, and ghost dogs and spirits are included in the price.

7. The Cage, St. Osyth, United Kingdom

Price: £295,950

The Biggest Nope: Well, this used to be a "former medieval witches prison." It's supposedly one of the most haunted houses in England, and may still be the home of Ursula Kemp, an accused witch who was held there in the late-1500's before she was hanged for cursing a child that died. The previous owner told BBC that she wouldn't sell the house to a family with kids because it's too dangerous.
