Unilad draws our attention to a rather peculiar property listing in Liverpool, for a mere £91 per week, you can stay in a three bedroom home that comes complete with its very own poltergeist.
The listing reads as follows:
3-bedroom terraced house in a popular location off Park Road, close to the Tesco Superstore. It has two singles and one double bedroom, rear yard, upstairs bathroom and two living rooms.
Please note previous tenants have advised us that they have experienced paranormal activity at the property.
Sure, the supernatural force that resides in the walls of the place is terrifying, but you can’t beat that price point! The Liverpool Echo consulted a local Ghostbuster about the home’s unwelcome tenant.
Local paranormal expert Tom Slemen says that the ghost, known as the Pickwick Poltergeist, was first reported over 130 years ago.
He said: “There have been stories about a very unusual poltergeist on Pickwick Street that date back to the 1880s at least’ unusual in the fact that it seems to get around - most ghosts stick to haunting one property, but there are a rare few who flit from house to house, often in the same street, and the Pickwick Street Poltergeist is one of those.
“A landlady connected to the letting of Number 69, a Mrs Euphemia Nimlock, was also lifted out of her bed by the same violent spirit and, and another neighbour Ismael Jones (Number 70) was under the impression the house was going to collapse because of the vibrations.”
Maybe a “no kids, pets, or old women that hate shaking” warning should be added to the listing? Plus Dane, the listing service attached to the property, claims they just wanted to be up front about the whole “evil spirit that punishes those who dare to disturb it” thing.
“We don’t get involved directly in instances such as this but we work to help, advise and support tenants if they are experiencing these issues and we take them very seriously.
“As part of our approach of being open and honest, we wanted to make anyone interested in this property aware of these past reports.”
Fair enough. We appreciate their honesty, but we’re a little surprised they didn’t just hire someone to take care of the problem. After all, everybody knows who they can call for this kind of thing.
