R.I. Home That Inspired 'The Conjuring' Sells For More Than $1.5 Million

Rhode Island Home That Inspired ‘The Conjuring’ Movie Series Sells For More Than $1.5 Million

Buy a haunted house? It’s not for everybody, but it is for somebody! That person is now Jacqueline Nuñez, a real estate developer living in Boston. According to The Wall Street Journal, Jacqueline is the new owner of the Rhode Island home that inspired the supernatural horror movie The Conjuring. The 58-year-old bought the property for $1.525 million–a 27 percent increase from the original $1.2 million ticket.

“I believe the house chose Jacqueline the same way it chose us. It wants her light,” said Andrea Perron, whose family lived in the home from 1971 to 1980.

Beyond the property itself, Andrea’s family and investigations by Ed and Lorraine Warren also inspired The Conjuring. Andrea described multiple encounters while living there, per WSJ. In one incident in 1974, Andrea says she saw her mother Carolyn Perron floating before flying across the room. Despite hitting her head, Carolyn recovered within an hour and has never recollected the moment her daughter says traumatized her.

Jacqueline Nuñez Buys Home For $1.5 Million 

Jacqueline, however, bought the property from Jenn and Cory Heinzen. The couple secured the 3,100-square-foot home in 2019 for $439,000. It features three bedrooms and sits on a grassy 8.5 acres surrounded by tall forestry on all sides. Getting there from Providence requires a 40-minute drive to the town of Harrisville.

Like Ed and Lorraine, Jenn and Cory are also paranormal investigators. And their sale emphasized that with the list of conditions, they required Jacqueline to meet to close the deal. They needed an interview. The home should be used as a business with overnight visitation and paranormal investigations– a business model similar to Heinzens’ ownership period. Additionally, they asked the new buyer to honor bookings through the rest of 2022.

And for Jacqueline’s protection, the Heinzens’ asked her not to make the place her home. Based on their experience living in the barn, Jenn shared with WSJ that living there was “so emotional.” On the other end, Jacqueline believes the home is “an amplifier for our energy, attitudes, and beliefs.” She doesn’t think the house has a demon, and she’s not scared to be its new owner–for now.
