A house in 1002 North Pershing Avenue in Stockton, California which has been rumored to be haunted has been sold in April last year for $120,000. The house, which was built in 1925, has passed the hands of several owners since February 19, 2002 when it was sold for $210,00 and then in September 29, 2006 when it was sold at a profit for $360,000 and then in November, 2007 when it was sold for $257, 550. However, barely five months after it was bought, the new owners sold it for less than half of the purchase price.
The neighbors are saying that the house is haunted but a Stockton realtor denied the rumor saying she has shown the house many times and have spoken with the owners who said the house is fine and not at all haunted. Rumors that the house was haunted may have circulated because the house looks like a castle. It even has the look of a haunted house, the realtors said.
She said there has never been any death in the house as confirmed by the present owners. However, she admitted that there are real estate agents who will not show the house because of the rumors. The 1,964-square meter house with a 7,405 square feet lot area has 3 bedrooms and 1 and a half bath.
