Is My Home Haunted?

When Halloween is mentioned, we think of grinning jack-o-lanterns and little ghouls scouring their neighborhoods,  trick or treating.  Our children celebrate this ghost time with darling costumes and fantasies of Fairies, Witches, Super Heroes and all kinds of FUN personal alternative personas. However, it wasn’t always about pumpkins and candy.  Halloween dates back to ancient times and was celebrated differently than the way we do today.

For example the Celts believed that on the night before the New Year, the boundary between the living and the dead became blurred. The Samhian on the night of October 31st, when the dead supposedly returned to walk the earth. Ghosts were thought to cause trouble and damage crops and enable the Druids and Celtic priests, to predict the future. To commemorate Samhain, the Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where people gathered to sacrifice crops and animals.

Well since we are speaking real estate here, how can you learn the history of your haunted home? How can you find out who lived or died on the property before you owned it or lived in it? It helps to know a friendly real estate agent or title company employee if you want to get the distant past history of your haunted land. Or better yet, talk to the neighbors, sometimes they know more than anyone.

A title company can run a title search and get what is called the “chain of title” for you. That will tell you much more than a property profile or the county records, which often go back only about 10 years. A chain of title can go way, way back-as far as Mexican or Spanish land grants in our area.

Sometimes the chain of title will also include, death certificates, so you’ll know if anyone died on the land or in the house. But don’t expect this to be absolutely perfect- no guarantees here! BOO!!!!
