Fantasy Horror Humor Magical Realism haunted house Baen

This is another tale that appeared in Jim Baen's Universe. Most of the story was from a vivid dream that stopped just a few paragraphs shy of the end. It was as if the Writing Muses had designed a test in which I must choose whether the story I was telling was humor or horror. Me, being me, I opted for both. It's about an estate agent and a "haunted" house.
