When Moving Into A New Home
Posted 07 June 2008 - 02:48 PM
i can still remember my thoughts about both houses. my last place, i hated it upstairs and on the stairs. i just had an awful feeling about it. turns out, it was upstairs that had the most activity.
in this house, i remember i was sweeping the floorboards ready for carpets upstairs and i kept feeling like somebody was watching me from the top of the stairs, and i'd get that seem feeling from the passage at the bottom of the stairs. funnily enough, the stairs is where i get most activity.
soooo...i was just wondering...did you have any strange feelings about a particular room, and to find out at a later date that those feelings were more than just feelings?

I have lived in a couple homes that I got that creepy being watched feeling.In two of these locations it was definetly limited to certain areas, where as the rest of the home felt just fine. J

I would walk into beautiful homes and get that sick feeling or an uneasy feeling. I guess my clients could see the look on my face and would ask me what's wrong. Since I am cursed with brutal honesty I would have to say....it just feels funny or whatever to me and we could turn around and leave.
I don't know how many sales I lost, but I never told people I was psychic back when I was in my early 20s other than my close friends.
Needless to say, I quit the business after about a year.
As a kid, I was scared of my grandmother's bathroom. She had a huge Victorian home with a front and back staircase. The family always used the back steps. When I had to go to the bathroom either my Grams or one of my aunts had to sit on the landing while I went upstairs. She had a walk-in closet in the bathroom with a curtain hanging over the door. The toilet was actually in a tiny little room like a closet at the back of the bathroom and you had to walk past that curtain to get to that little room. I hated it.
ADVICE, WHEN MOST NEEDED, IS LEAST HEEDED
Life is like a roll of toilet paper; the closer it gets to the end the quicker it goes!

Years ago... I was dating a guy who lived in a beautiful brownstone in Harlem (NYC). His bedroom was on the first floor that in the 1800s served as the parlor and usually the room where funerals were held. Anyway... I hated being in his room... and never stayed in there alone. Finally I couldn;t take it anymore and happened to mention it to his mother and she revealed that years before they had an older woman staying with them who died in that room! I KNEW IT!!! LOL

That is funny because the same thing happened to me! I have been house hunting for at least two years and turned down countless houses because of the "feeling" that I got from them. I turned down some pretty sweet foreclosure deals... and no one could understand why!!! They just felt creepy and wrong. A few I felt down right dizzy in. The house that I just purchased feels sooooo peaceful it's almost frightening... like the calm before the storm... but I am trying to think positive!!!

Did you see that episode of Ghost Hunters where they were investigating the house that the two sisters shared with thier family, and all the activity occured in the basement? It was a very active house apparently, and that was a newly built house.

could it not be your scary eye avatar that's haunting you?
i agree with shona, they are attatched to land or it could be relatives popping in for a visit

The other rooms I feel just fine in, but that hallway just gives me the creeps. I have been expecting to open my bedroom door one night to go potty and see someone standing in the hallway. (in which case I will probably potty all over myself).

But then again I guess it's not all that amazing if you don't like being in it,huh?
My ex, he had had an accident which left him with a fairly sweet piece of change. When we got engaged we decided that his apartment would be too cramped for us both so we decided to look for a house.
Well, he had wanted an upstairs. He was absolutely set on it. He had gone out and actually made the deal while I was working as kind of a 'surprise' I guess.It was small, but big enough I guess (two bed/bath)
But it did have an upstairs lol
It was out in the middle of nothing really. The closest neighbors were about 5-10 miles away. That didn't make it aaanyy less creepy *shivers*
Well he picked me up and took me to the house.I hated it.Oooh I hated that house lol. But he loved it and he had gotten a really good deal on it.
We slept in it a few nights later before we had even gotten our stuff in it, because he couldn't wait (well, he slept, I laid awake until morning).
It made me so uncomfortable being in that house. And the thing I hated most about it was the thing he loved most. That darn staircase. I always felt like something was just...watching me. And it was right in front of the front door. You open the door and BAM there it is.
On the nights that he worked, I would sleep in the living room with all the lights and tv on.
So I totally know what you mean. Never buy a house you've never been in
