Amityville Apartments For Rent: Do Horror Histories Attract Or Scare Tenants?

It's been 42-1/2 years since Ronald DeFeo, Jr. was convicted of murdering his family. Since then the Dutch Colonial house at 108 Ocean Ave. has been bought and sold 4 times. Which to me says that people don't really care about the “ghost” stories. Most recently, the house was on the market for $850,000. According to a news story from dailymail.com, the house went on the market in November of 2016, but the terms of the sale were not disclosed.

Personally, I don't know anyone that has purchased or rented a property that involved a “ghost” story, but I have a couple of Hollywood examples to refer to.

There was an episode of NCIS near the end of season 13 where Special Agent DiNozzo was going to sell his house, and the rest of the team was trying to get it. It didn't matter to them that it was the scene of a murder, which is how DiNozzo was able to get it for under market value.

Recently, in an episode of Modern Family, Phil Dunphy was trying to sell a house that was previously a crime scene. He wasn't having much luck until he enlisted the help of his daughter, Haley. Somehow, she was able to market the property to younger potential buyers from different backgrounds. At the end of the episode, there is a scene with a house full of potential buyers, and 1 woman asks to see where it took place.

In some cases, there are people who like the excitement of the paranormal, and they would be attracted to buy or rent a property where strange things were happening. I think most people would be indifferent about it, as long as the property was restored to it's original state.

If you would like a quieter place to call home, and still be in Amityville, you can go 3 miles across town from the scary movie house to 805 Broadway, and take a look at Greybarn. It is a fairly new multi-family complex, with 1 and 2 bedroom apartments that are as big as some single family homes.
