In my tradition and practice, we believe that there are certain wights such as the house and land vaettir, which are spirits of these places.
Traditionally, if you want to attract wights to your house and land there are some ways to go about this: Set up a tiny shrine or altar. Leave shiny things on the altar/shrine, leave items that have personal meaning to you, leave it food offerings, even wine or mead, burn candles there. This is thought to attract house vaettir. To attract land vaettir: start a garden, plant lots of trees and plant-like around your property, set up "sacred areas" dedicated to the vaettir where you leave offerings, or have a ritual fire, and burn offerings in this fire. Many Heathens who work with wights talk outloud to them.
