There is a house on the market that my dh and I are interested in. A murder took place in the house last spring (2012). The house is not on the market at a good price. It's over the estimated value by about 25%. Most homes that have had a brutal murder in them are listed under estimate value, at least in this area. The area has a very low crime rate, almost non existent. We've been watching the house since it was put up for sale.

Would you have an issue living in a home where a brutal murder took place?

 

I don't want to go into a lot of detail about the murder because I don't want anyone on here to know where I live, lol. In short, the home owner murdered a man for insurance money.

If it was a random murder, I would have more difficulty making that decision. But if it was a family member murder, it would be easier to say yes. Kwim?

I wouldn't have much of an issue, however I wouldn't buy it unless it was listed for under the estimated value

Only if it's not an infamous house, such as the Amityville house and the only reason there is because I wouldn't want random tourists or fans driving by or my kids being teased at school about it. I don't believe in ghosts or hauntings, so as long as it's not a well known murder and there's no evidence of it left behind, it wouldn't bother me.

YES in fact I have before got it a great price and added incentives, use it for rental property - people don't really care - some think it's cool to live there.( fucked up I know)

 Put in a LOW BALL offer, most likely they will take it and if you ask give you incentives.

If the price was right, and I was in love with it, yes. I love older houses, my dream house would be a plantation style house but I know we'd never be able to afford it.

No but I am a huge chicken with an over active imagination and I would be replaying the scenes in my head :(

I picked other, because if it was 20+ years, I would if the price was right. 

I can't believe it's priced so high, with its recent history.

 Yes, I see what you mean. The murder was planed. The owner killed his bf for insurance money. :(
