The House Viewing


My story dates back 8 years. I had just given birth to my son who is my second child. And as my family was growing, we were keeping an eye on the local property. In our local paper a bungalow was advertised for a very low price. It was just off a large roundabout on a very busy road so the location wasn't great, but it was a detached bungalow that was very cheap and it was also empty.

As it was only a 2 minute drive from where we were currently living, we thought we'd drive over and have look. So we put the baby in the car and headed over. I had to bumper the car onto the curb just off this main road, so we went individually to take a quick peak. My partner got out first to have look and see what he thought and I waited in the car. A couple of minutes later he returned saying it was a bit of a mess and that it looked like someone had started renovations and left?

So now it was my turn to look. I got out of the car and headed into the garden. I immediately got this unwelcome feeling. I looked into the window and it looked just like my partner had said. The floor boards were half ripped up as though someone has started work and left. I had this feeling that I daren't go around the back and as I moved away from the window, I was overcome by the feeling of absolute terror as though I'd been surrounded by a pack of snarling dogs. I quickly turned and ran back to the car. I said to my partner that house is bad it's definitely not for us.

To this day I'm not sure whether there was something evil in the house or whether because of the poor location, I was being spiritually warned that it was too dangerous a location to raise a family.

I welcome your thoughts and comments on this.

Cliney, sorry for my late reply, but what an interesting story. Thank goodness you did listen to your instincts and decide the bungalow was not for you.

And once a home is on the market it's always on the market. Just a little saying I've heard.

This one is going into my favourites.

Thanks for sharing,

Hey ReddySteady...
Yes someone is in this house now but let me tell you it was on the market... Off the market being developed... Then back on the market again within a few months this went on and on. Everytime I drove passed I would look at it a shudder... It has taken 8 years for someone to finish the development and move in I would love to know how things were going for whoever is living there but honestly no way would I set foot in there... As I'm writing this I had a thought... It's funny how you can walk into a place and just know something's off... Like going to a dinner party and the couple have argued before you got there! You just feel the energy is all wrong even though they would smile and put on a brave face pretending everything was great... All the decorating and soft furniture would never make that house a home they will definitely need a spiritual intervention... ❤

Thanks for sharing, good story! Somebody must have been scared away before like everyone says, good call on not moving there, a clear message from the unknown. Is that in Yorkshire? If so which part? I'm in North Yorkshire. Very creepy to hear about this bungalow, not surprised it was at such low price really.

Am thinking you did the right thing also by passing the home off seems like whoever was doing the renovations got spooked off aswell. As some of my friends have already mentioned the gut instinct is a powerfull messenger! Well done!

Thank you for sharing.

Cliney, I agree with you and Miracles. You did the right thing by passing on this property. Listen to your gut, it won't steer you wrong.

Thank you for reading and commenting on my story. I often drive passed that house as it is on a busy city route and every time I see it I shudder to myself I'm glad to say I always go with my gut instincts and I tell my children to do the same.:) 😊

Hi Cliney

I agree with Miracles and I think you were given a message of some kind to steer clear of this house. For some reason a house that has been left in a hurry always makes me worry just exactly why it has been left that way...

I was house hunting (to rent) a couple of years ago and I looked at a house where I literally took one step in the front door, turned and walked out again. The house gave me an incredible sense of ill ease and I knew there was no way in the world I could live there! Our gut instincts are usually always right and sometimes I think we get a little 'spiritual push' in the right direction to help us make the right choice.

Thanks for sharing 😊

Cliney - I think you were right. You were given a spiritual message not to move into that home, whatever the reason may have been. I'm glad you listened.
