‘The Conjuring’ home sells for over .2 million

‘The Conjuring’ home sells for over $1.2 million

A Rhode Island farmhouse that is infamous for inspiring director James Wan’s 2013 supernatural horror film Conspiracy sold for $1.525 million, well above its asking price of $1.2 million. The colonial-era home sold for 27% more than the original price.

Although the Rhode Island house is not the house featured in the film franchise, it was the actual house where the Perron family was plagued by paranormal activity in the 1970s.

The film depicts the tale of a Roman Catholic family haunted by supernatural activity in their new Rhode Island dream home. In desperation, the couple hire paranormal investigators to help them convince the church that an exorcism must be done to save their family.

The Heinzens told the Wall Street Journal that they “spent four months staying in a room as a sign of respect for the spirits, letting them get used to us instead of bursting in.”

The Wall Street Journal reported that the new owner is Boston real estate developer Jacqueline Nuñez. She made one of more than 10 offers on the approximately 3,100 square foot three-bedroom home in September 2021. She agreed to a unique request from sellers: not to live in the house for the sake of the buyer.

“This is a very personal purchase for me,” Nuñez, who was represented by Ricardo Rodriguez and Bethany Eddy of Coldwell Banker Realty in Providence, told The Wall Street Journal. “When it came on the market, I was like, ‘This is a property that allows people to talk to the dead.'”

Nuñez says she will be hosting events honoring the property’s haunting history.

“I’m not afraid of home,” Nuñez told The Wall Street Journal. She jokingly added, “Ask me again in a year.”
