Say you were in the market, and a house came up for sale in which several people had been murdered.  You know, what realtors call "psychologically impacted properties."

For example, the house in Kansas in which the Clutter family were savagely murdered in 1959 (the IN COLD BLOOD case), or the house in Amityville New York where the DeFeo family was murdered in 1974.

Assume the price is right for what you are looking for, and it meets your needs in all other respects as well.

Would you buy the house and live comfortably there, not troubled at all by what happened there?

Or would you run like Hell in the other direction?

Just curious.

if it was priced well below a house with no murders i would give it a go.
Link Posted: 4/20/2016 12:03:15 AM EDT
did the house somehow murder them?

not seeing the issue unless like every owner of the house ever has been murdered in it.

Link Posted: 4/20/2016 12:04:06 AM EDT
I would not be interested.

Aside from any possible bad juju a place like that attracts freaks. People who think it's a tourist attraction.

I lived in the house where the Texas Chainsaw Massacre was filmed and it was a never ending stream of shitheads. And no one was actually murdered there.

Supposedly it was haunted for other reasons but I never saw anything.
Link Posted: 4/20/2016 12:05:15 AM EDT
Yes. It would be hard to relax/have fun in a house where multiple people met an unfortunate end.
Link Posted: 4/20/2016 12:06:39 AM EDT
I do think I would look at a house differently if it was the scene of a multiple homicide. If some tweaker broke in and got shot I probably wouldn't give a rats ass. A quadruple murder? I'd probably pass.

I'm not a spiritual person.

It's a house.

There's no such things as ghosts.

Who cares.

Nope.

I was in high school at the time - summer vacation..  My family and I were coming back on a Saturday evening from a picnic...  We couldn't get within blocks of our house by car.  Police had roads blocked off.  So we parked and walked to see what was up?  

Turns out, the guy down the block from me, killed his girlfriend and child, killed their two dogs, and then off-ed himself.  I don't live in the neighborhood anymore, but to this day...  If I mention "The House of Death" my family and old friends know the house I'm talking about.  We used to cross the block, just to stay away from the bad ju-ju.  

So no...  I would not.

This.

The impact on resale value would be significant, so that has to be considered.

Depending on how they were killed.

The biggest problem is if someone gets blown apart you will be finding skull fragments in random places, the grossest are the kind that have mummified scalp and hair still attached to them.

Not just the resale value, but if it was general knowledge in the neighborhood, and it probably would be, it would attract crazies like dogs to a fire hydrant.  When I was a kid there was a house on the next block over that had a murder/suicide in it, and not only the neighbor kids daring each other to look in, but the nutty ghostbuster wannabes and amateur exorcists would hover around it.  I dated one of the latter kinds of nutcases when I was in my 20's, they're fucked in the head and I never want anything to do with them again.

Kind of a related story..... When searching for a house last year I narrowed it down to two I really liked.


I always like to check out the county tax assessor's website to find out who owns the house and maybe do a Google search to learn about them.  May be weird, but may be not! lol  My SO is glad I did.

House #1 belonged to a very old couple in their 70s.  A quick google search shows that the old man is now in prison with around 10 counts of child molestation.  We skipped that house, thinking it was possible the crimes were committed in there.

House #2 is the one we finally picked and absolutely love it.  But apparently, the family had a history of drug and spousal abuse.  The husband beat the wife while high on drugs.  Funny story, that explains why the master bedroom had a deadbolt on it!!!  Also, the son was in prison for execution style murder of a guy over $15 he was owed.  I guess it was more over "street cred" than the price. But that murder was not committed here.  Just lots of wife beating.

ETA:  The murderers young daughter lived here with her grandparents.  When viewing the house, she had her fathers mugshot over her bed with the text " Daddy loves you Lil' Breezy"

It would be difficult, but not because of a fear of ghosts. I think it would be hard to get over having empathy for the suffering of the deceased.

I wouldn't be able to help myself from looking up the crime scene photos.

And then not be able to ever see those places in the house without super imposing the photos.

I never said I was worried about ghosts... lol.  That was my first post in this thread and I thought it would fit it.

It was in our price range and fit the requirements of big sqft (2900) and 1.6 acre yard.

So you believe that children who get molested, are forever condemned to Haunt the place where the molestation occurred?


Or, you were scared that old Chester would die, and return to molest you?

Depends. How long ago was it and will unwanted people be attracted to it? Someone want to come back and kill who they believe might be connected with it not knowing I'm innocent? Thinking of drug dealer/gang related murders here.

If I were offered two identical houses for the same price, one with previous bloodshed and one without, I guess I'd take the one without.





But it wouldn't be a significant deterrent, as long as no one related to the event would have any reason to come back.



I would use it as a negotiation tool to get a better price.

I would be worried that it would be a tourist attraction for weirdos. Probably only an issue with a crime that got a lot of media attention, though.

I'd be aware of it, but I don't think it would bother me too much, unless I was the one who killed them.
Link Posted: 4/20/2016 7:49:37 AM EDT
The house behind us.  The neighbor/friend had a heart attack and died by the mailbox.  I can't help but think about it every time we walk the dogs.   No I wouldn't buy a house like that.  

Years ago I had a friend that slept in the room that his older brother died in.  I couldn't do that either.   His brother passed away in a coma.   He was 'alive' for seven years after he fell off of his second story roof.

My brother in law lives in a trailer in rural KY where there was a murder/suicide. We went down to see it before he moved in and there was brain matter, blood splatter and birdshot embedded in the ceiling and ceiling fan where the suicide happened. In the back bedroom there was a missing section of carpet where the murder took place. The floor was bloodstained where the carpet used to be. After he closed on the trailer but before he moved in, a relative of the murder victim broke in and trashed the place.

Location, condition, and price are what concern me. I'm not superstitious. I'd have to think there are some pretty good deals to be had on murder houses. YMMV
Link Posted: 4/20/2016 8:35:17 AM EDT
Would this be like a one time murder thing or people moved in and were murdered various times? Former no problem latter I'd be scared.
Link Posted: 4/20/2016 8:40:01 AM EDT
Put me in the "fuck that noise" category. I don't believe in ghosts, but I wouldn't be able to forget what happened there - it would be a real downer knowing what happened.
