Would You Buy the Amityville Horror House?

Budget for holy water and smudging sage

Once again, the Dutch Colonial on Ocean Avenue in Amity Harbor made infamous by the Amityville Horror book and movies is for sale. It’s a spacious, charming house with a boathouse on the river. Obviously, it’s offered at a discount for the area; current asking price is $850K, while the house next door (granted, there’s more land, and presumably no pigs called Jody with glowing red eyes) is asking $350K more.

Which got us to wondering: if we were in the market for such a house, would we buy it? We’re not sure, and not because we believe any of the legend. Would you?
