Seriously,if you have a doubt always ask or do some research about the house,in California,the law says you have the right to ask if anyone has died or anything happen to the house within the 3 year limit. The listing agent has to have a writen disclosure,you can always ask the agent. After that you need to ask around the neighborhood if anything happened to the house. Get a priest to bless the house,have a big party,get rid of the bad vibes! If you have bad vibes,don't buy it. I have been to houses and feel some strange energy,but others don't. It's just personal.
I asked the realtor and all she said was that it was a POA. The house had clothes in the closet, antiques every where, and everything from the cabinets on the counter tops. It was odd to me that they wouldn't take everything out first. Someone being lazy or someone leaving in a hurry?

There are cases where someone's elderly relative will die, and the heirs regard the stuff in the house as "old junk" and don't want to be bothered with it.

I also recall many years ago someone who moved out of her apartment and left a huge pile of clothes, furniture, etc in the alley. Being young mothers at the time, my friend and I started rooting through her abandoned stuff. We and several other neighbors found leather jackets, pewter ware, clothes with tags still on them, I even found several dollars worth of change.
You just never know what goes on in people's minds.
Of course, if the house makes you uncomfortable, you shouldn't consider buying it.
Basements always make me uncomfortable, even in my present home. We built our house, and I know for a fact that nothing ever stood here. It was always pasture or forest. Ditto with our last house, and the one before that was built on a former airport. No fatal crashes ever recorded.

Our first two houses were in estate and when we were finally able to move into the second one the squatters (long story) left things behind, most beneficial was the warranty for the roof.

You should have seen the toilet from the 1900's on the back porch. I've never seen anything like it.

Thanks to everyone who have sent me supportive DM's but were to afraid of harassment to post on this thread. It's a shame though that people can't respect other peoples thoughts and opinions. "Why can't we all just get along?" I love that line by Jack Nicholson in Mars Attacks. (As the aliens blow everyone away. Sigh.)
