"As soon as we walked in, I had a creepy, unsettled feeling, even though the house was lovely. The house was on an acre of land and even had a small pond, so we went out back to look at it. I was looking at the pond and suddenly saw the reflection of a little boy (maybe around 4 years old) standing behind me.

"I turned around and nobody was there.

"I started to freak out and told my husband we needed to leave, NOW. Later he looked up the house online and it turns out the previous owner’s young son had drowned in the pond. I’m convinced that house will never sell.” -- Misty H., Walker, Minnesota
