You’ve never run over an old crone with supernatural powers, desecrated a burial site, stolen an ancient artifact, murdered someone for personal gain, consulted a Ouija board, or read an occult manuscript aloud. You believe in human goodness and embrace the spirit of Christmas. You’re not looking for a property that’s way below market value, you don’t seek out a deal that’s too good to be true, and you know that your new home is not built on the site of a former cemetery, asylum, prison, or massacre.
