If you're in Victoria and you need a real estate agent... Dominique Tregurtha is the one to get. She's lovely, funny, totally listens to your needs and is the most organized person I have ever met. She has made this entire experience a total breeze. She works for SUTTON and you can contact her HERE.
So I'm fairly sure there's some sort of ghost type thing in the new condo. The first time we went and looked at it there was one spot in the house that every time I stood near it I would feel a little dizzy and sick to my stomach. I would move ... feel better. Go back to the spot... feel sick. I don't even believe in ghosts... but I sure was feeling something.
When we went back for a 2nd viewing the same thing happened. Sick and dizzy in that certain spot. So as inspected all the nooks and crannies I kept thinking to myself "I really love your house. Please don't be scared of us."
Gerry, Dominique and I sat in the kitchen and decided to put an offer in. Dominique suggested we start low and while we discussing what price to start with I swear to you that I had a specific number forced into my head while we were all talking. I dismissed it and went with Dominique's suggestion since it was lower than the number that was rattling around in my head. I do love a good barter.
She left to talk to the other realtor and called us back with their counter. Ooooh. We were excited. They went down in price by $8000. Gerry was ready to settle on the spot but that specific number was still bouncing around in my head so I asked Dominique to counter with that number. She called back a few minutes later and asked if we'd take $1000 above what our final counter was. We shrieked with glee and said YES YES YES! We got the place for $10 000 less than the asking price! Did I mention that I LOVE A GOOD BARTER!!
The place was ours. Wow. Watching all those house buying shows on HGTV really helped. *laugh* And you gotta give props to Ghosty for the bartering tip.
So now I'm hoping that Ghosty has moved on ... but if they haven't ... what should I do? I don't really believe in ghosts but on the other hand I've had lots of weird ghost type experiences in my life so maybe I should just go with it and realize that all these experiences add up to something.
Maybe I'm like Jennifer Love Hewitt in The Ghost Whisperer but without the fantastic cleavage.
A friend suggested that we enter the house and say "We don't need you here anymore. Thank you!" and see if that works. Do you guys have any ghost experiences??
