An extended corner semi-detached house in Klang, previously thought to be haunted, has been “certified” by an unidentified group of ‘ghostbusters’ and is now on auction for RM1.41 million, a significant discount from its market value of RM2.4 million.
The mysterious story of this 5210sf property began when its previous occupants reported supernatural disturbances, according to a Facebook post.
The property came under bank possession due to a foreclosure process.
Speaking to WeirdKaya, the property agent, Chris Yap shared that the bank has also previously hired Chinese sifus to ‘cleanse the property.’
In an effort to alleviate any potential concerns from buyers, the bank took the initiative to hire a ‘sifu’, a local spiritual expert, to perform a traditional Chinese prayer ceremony, thereby cleansing the house of any suspected spirits.
Notice from Ghostbusters surfaces online
Recently, a notice, purportedly from the ‘Ghostbusters’, appeared on the house gate. In the statement dated 30/05/2023, the unidentified Ghostbusters revealed,
“Notwithstanding several reports, we could not find any paranormal activity in this compound […]. The suicide of the last owner on 15/08/2021 in this premises has apparently left no major signs of ghostly activities at the time of observation (21.00-24.00).”
The group also went on to rationalize that some of the reported phenomena, such as flickering lights and self-opening doors, might be attributed to faulty wiring and wind currents, respectively, and eerie sounds potentially coming from wild animals in the vicinity.
They also suggested further investigations would require setting up a small laboratory on-site and extending the observation period to 15 days.
Notice not coming from bank
However, Chris told WeirdKaya that the origin of the Ghostbusters and the notice remains a mystery, as the bank clarified it did not commission any ghostbusting services.
The unexpected ‘certification’ has created intrigue among potential buyers. Nevertheless, the bank is moving ahead with the auction, which comes with gated security and a clubhouse, with the auction starting tomorrow (3 July).
Due to the events that transpired, we have received numerous inquiries, but only a few expressions of interest.
However, other agents may have been successful in attracting buyers.
Malaysians share their thoughts
The post, which was posted 4 days ago, has since received over 600 likes and 180 comments at press time, with many sharing their thoughts about the notice.
“This notice [is to] let everyone know there was a suicide case […]”
One is also surprised to find there’s actually a ghost inspector in Malaysia.
“hahahaha really good one, especially that explanation.”
One netizen also suggested the team to go overnight for an ‘experience’.
“This is innovative marketing.”
