Are you one of those people who wish they had the million bucks required to buy the Amityville Horror house? Is Paranormal Activity your favourite documentary film of all time? (It’s a documentary, right?)
Well, you just missed your chance, because someone may have just bought a haunted house in the Rhône-Alpes region of France, and all the ghosts contained within, for a mere euro.
As Planet.fr notes, a user who goes by the handle Maud69620 recently auctioned off the 110 square meter property on France’s version of eBay, pictures included, only serious buyers need apply.

Located in a town called Arbresle, the home was supposedly the site of a gruesome double murder in the 1950s and has since been plagued by all sorts of supernatural phenomena – everything from phantom faces at the window and phantom shadows on the floor to strange moving objects and weird, disembodied voices.
The listing claims the home’s former owners, a couple, were killed by “ruthless” thieves searching for some kind of “hidden treasure” buried inside.
According to this legend, the listing continues, their bodies were recovered in a nearby field, but their restless spirits have haunted the house ever since.
Naturally, the ad has generated its fair share of skepticism and its authenticity has yet to be proved, but that hasn’t stopped mainstream media from picking it up and running with it, because, well, who doesn’t love a good haunted house story?
Maud is sticking to her story, however, and specifically asked that anyone who believed her listing to be a fake refrain from contacting her, as the home is intended only for “those who believe in the spirit world.”
