26 Realtors Reveal The Disturbing History Behind The Haunted Houses They Were Forced To Sell

22. The apartment was a converted asylum

“Not a realtor, but I used to rent an apartment that was in a converted victorian asylum. It was rumored to be haunted but I never heard or saw anything whilst living there.

When I met with a letting agent to hand the keys back at the property, and for him to run through a final inspection he asked if we had been ‘happy’ there. I said something to the effect of yes, but we were only moving as the landlord had it up for sale. It became clear he was after some kind of ghost story as he explained that none of his colleagues liked going to any apartments in the building because when taking photos to market one of them, the red eye detector kept triggering on his phone when no one was in frame!

The poor guy looked nervous as hell the whole time we were there.” — Zutsky

23. There was a camera hidden inside the bathroom mirror

“I went to visit my sister in California and once I flew in I wanted to shower. Well I took a long enough shower that the mirror was all steamy when I got out. Except one tiny dot in the middle of the mirror. My immediate thought process was “oh weird. I guess if you draw on a mirror with expo it won’t steam around it”. So I went to go investigate and upon looking right up to it I realized it was a fucking camera lens.

Well I freaked and ran out to her room and dressed then went and told her. We went around our back and looked in a utility closet type thing that looked like it was in line with her room. Sure enough the drywall had been cut away and re patched at some point. We cut it open and while there was no camera there was a little lens still stuck to the mirror. It’s real freaky to think whoever was getting actually spied on and if they ever actually knew. Eeeeeek.” — snapdragonflies
