‘The Conjuring’ house sold for $1.2 million more than the asking price

Jacqueline Nuñez, owner of the real estate development group WonderGroup LLC and deep believer in the paranormal, purchased the home that inspired The Conjuring. “I came to visit and thought, ‘I have to have this house,'” Nuñez told The Boston Globe. Nuñez paid around $1.525 million, more than 25 percent of the $1.2 million asking price. 

New owner of ‘The Conjuring’ house will continue running paranormal business the Heinzen Family started

Nuñez plans to continue the Heinzen Family’s paranormal business. Corey and Jennifer Heinzen, paranormal investigators, purchased the four-bedroom, two-bathroom farmhouse in 2019 for $439,000.

Visits to the property will continue nightly, as will day tours and live-streamed events from The Conjuring house. Additionally, Nuñez wants to keep the Heinzens involved with the goings on. “I’m proud of them,” Nuñez added. “They are upstanding people with great integrity. I know I have big shoes to fill, and I intend to do it.”

“This purchase is personal for me,” Nuñez elaborated. “It’s not a real estate development. It’s around my own beliefs.” She continued: 

“I believe we are conscious beings having a human experience and that our consciousness continues on, we are here to learn things in life and help our species evolve morally and culturally.

This house is an opportunity to connect with people who’ve moved on and died, that’s the interactivity here and the engagement with the people who have passed.”

Heinzen Family experienced paranormal activity at the Farm on Round Top Road

As soon as the Heinzen’s moved in, they started experiencing the paranormal. “Footsteps, knocks, we’ve had lights flashing in rooms, and when i say lights flashing in rooms, it’s rooms that don’t have light in there to begin with,” the Heinzens told KETK, a local Fox News affiliate. 

In the 1970s, the Perron family with five daughters lived in the house, which was built in 1736. Wan’s movie The Conjuring follows the Warrens (Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga) who seek to help the Perrons.
