I agree, in fact it may help show that people's fear of the surroundings heightens any "experience" of paranormal activity. Stick someone in a old scary looking house and someone in a nice shiny new build and I expect the first person will report more activity than the 2nd, even though there is as much chance (if any) of their being ghostly activity!
When we moved into our 'new' house 3 years ago, the first night we were there I went out to get some fish and chips as we weren't set up to do cooking, and while I was out my wife was convinced she saw an old lady in the living room doorway. She's convinced it was the old lady who had lived there checking that her house had been passed on to someone who would look after it. We later found out that the house had been in the same family since it was built. We think she approved as we've felt at home there from the very first day, and we haven't seen the old lady since.
"Mr Rashid, who is worth £25m and made his money through a chain of nursing homes, said: "I am now looking at a new property in Nottingham. I don't think I will ever buy an old building again because of what has happened."
£25 million from running Nursing Homes? Maybe it's his previous customers seeking refunds.
