And yet, oddly enough, the dead STILL don't bother me, just the living! [lol]

Oh, neat. Colma as you may know is the city where the dead outnumber the living. [Big Grin]

I almost do. When we moved in here in September 2005, after about a week we were getting to know our neighbours when they asked... "So, you don't mind about the murder, then?" swiftly followed by "Oh, no, you haven't heard have you..." when they saw the look on my face.

Seems a young man was stabbed at a party about 10 years ago. It happened in the bathroom.

I asked the neighbours whether he died from his injuries. "Not in the house," came the grim answer... [Eek!]

Anyway we've lived here for over a year now and nothing has gone bump in the night, although I do confess to making very speedy bathroom trips for a few weeks last year. I could probably get the facts by looking through newspaper archives and such, but we're not living here forever so I think I'll save that until weve moved. Other neighbours have backed the story up and that's really all I want to know about it for now.

ETA I used to live in a 600 year old thatched cottage. One entire downstairs wall was made from bits of boat washed up on the local beach after a barney with the Spanish Armada. It had also been a blacksmiths and soup kitchen over the centuries. Many residents claimed it was haunted, and things certainly went bump in the night an awful lot, but it was a creaky old place. Dad was "visited" by a man in Quaker dress from time to time, but then Dad couldn't remember the 60's either. [Big Grin]

Hmm, if I liked a house, wasn't creeped out by it and the price was good, I'd live there. I have an overactive imagination myself, but if I felt ok there, it probably wouldn't be a problem. New or old, if I felt wierded out in any way (whatever the story was), then no sale.

Cemetaries would probably be the same thing. We have some pretty cool ones in this state, so I probably wouldn't mind living near one.

My brother bought a house that had witnessed a double murder. The auctioneer told him of the history at the time, because although he was aware of the murders in the locality, he would not have known exactly which house.

The stigma attached meant he got the house devalued by about 20%. He sold it on three years later, and the house's history did not have to be disclosed to the new buyers, who in any case, were only interested in "buying to let" .

I'm not superstitous and stayed in the house a few times.

Ahh, yes! I've heard of Colma!
