The Dunmore Pennsylvania “Slightly Haunted” House

For one Dunmore, Pennsylvania couple selling their home, those creaks and groans an old house makes is now a marketing tool. They listed their 113 year old Victorian home for sale as “slightly haunted” and the response has been mixed. According to their real estate agent, there has been a great deal of foot traffic to the home, but most are not buyers. They are ghost hunters…

“Slightly haunted. Nothing serious, though,” says the listing on Zillow’s real-estate site. It goes on to describe 3:13 a.m. screams and “the occasional ghastly visage” in the bathroom mirror.
The listing attracted local and national media attention. Now the Leesons just need an actual buyer for the four-bedroom home, on the market for $144,000.
“I tried to word it with a little bit of a sense of humor,” says Greg Leeson, a 35-year-old who works in information technology, but “I don’t think it has helped with marketing. We’re not really getting very many interested buyers. We’re getting a lot of nonsense people.”
Spring should bring more traffic. But if it doesn’t sell, Leeson said they might consider renting it out — by the night — to folks looking for spooky thrills.
While Leeson concedes the home has a “creepy vibe,” he doesn’t believe in ghosts.
And his wife?
“I definitely think there’s a spirit or a ghost in the house, just from my personal experiences,” she said. via CBS Cleveland

Do you think this is a good marketing move? According to the Zillow Listing chart of price values, the price has dropped significantly over the past few months. This may or may not be a natural occurrence…

  1. This is a house I'd be interested in seeing. I often hear of homes around PA as being haunted. I think there's a thing with Victorian homes being haunted as well. I grew up right outside of PA and lived in many Victorian homes over the years and I swear some of them were haunted. You'd hear and see things at random times when you thought you were alone…creepy! I'd love to visit this house and explore the paranormal, but I'm not sure this is a house I'd want to live in. lol.
