You buy a house or visit a house and then find out some murders had occured there, would you stay?

depends on the price...

No way in hell! I won't go in a house where someone has committed suicide. Not knowingly anyway.
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 4:52:54 PM EDT

Probably not . But I ain't skeered .
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 4:53:38 PM EDT
Depends on if I am the one that commited the murders.
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 4:53:50 PM EDT
sure

Sure, why not.

Never again!

From the time I was 5 until I was 11 we lived in a house that scared the shit out of me. Every time i would sleep in the downstairs bedroom i had a recurring nightmare of an old woman in a night gown standing beside my bed. I must have had that dream 50 times. Long after we moved out we found out an elderly woman had committed suicide in that house and the downstairs bedroom was hers as she was too frail to climb the stairs.

I still get chill down my spine when i even drive by that house.

You probably have bodies buried under your house.

Hell, even if I got killed there, I want my ass outta there! Don't leave my dead body in a spooky room.
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 4:58:33 PM EDT
Shit yeah! You got any idea what a murder does to property value? You can get pretty sweet prices on houses like that!

Little OT but....

When I was a little kid prolly 3rd grade, I was riding my bike home, it was just dark and I pass by the pool park. I look over and the diving board pool I see a guy sitting on the diving board, drinking something (later find out its beer and he drank a lot). I also recognized something hanging around his feet/ankle area but couldn't make out what it was nor did I give it too much consideration, just figured oh....guy sitting on board drinking....whatever...(turns out it was shakles and chains).

Turns out a few weeks later we find out a guy commited suicide in that pool. I didn't swim in that pool again for a long time....

Funny thing was though, at that age I didn't put 2 and 2 together...wasn't untill a number of years later that I had the "Ahhh...oh shit....That was That guy and I was prolly the last person to see him alive."

Sorry, regarding your house thing....that would be tough. Whenever you walked by the spot...err... no thanks.

Depends whether its haunted.
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 5:08:04 PM EDT
Hell at one time my EMS unit was based at a funeral home, walk thirty feet look at the bodies on the table. During down time between runs we helped out in the embalming.It was a little strange to work a wreck, take them to the hospital, work your ass off in ER, go back a few hours later to take the body to the funeral home and help with the embalming. But that was the job, a house with a murder or violent death, no problem. Oh and BTW I am called sensitive to those kind of things, as one big time paranormal person told me. Whatever

no

not because Im afraid of ghosts

because of the stigma

just like if you found out a guy sold you a stolen gun, you wouldnt feel comfortable keeping it because it was stolen.

I live several blocks away from kendall francois's house, the new owners have remodeled it and report nothing odd.....

Sure, I drove a cruiser for a year that someone died in.

There's a house near me where a hooker and her boyfriend killed the john and he wasn't found for two weeks. The house is/was really nice but sat on the market for years. It finally sold and whoever bought it only kept it for about a year. It now sits for sale, vacant and in disrepair. If I had the money I would buy it.

Dead folks don't cause nearly the problems living ones do.

I sleep every night in a room where a guy named Jason committed suicide. Didn't find out about it until we had lived here a few years. Just a sad deal.

Whats the story behind that ?

Depends where it is. I certainly won't disqualify a house just because a murder happened there, but given the choice between two almost identical houses, one where I'd have to replace an AC unit/Water heater/etc and one where a murder had taken place, for the same price, I'd probably end up replacing an AC unit or water heater.

ETA: Now, if it had been a good self-defense shoot and the guy died in it...

Why exactly would a murder or suicide in the past have any affect on staying there in the present?
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 5:30:13 PM EDT
F-that. I would be freaked out.

I live in a house where the owner commited suicide and the police thought maybe the wufe killed him but couldn't prove it.
Ruger Blackhawk, one shot....
After I saw the electrical system he screwed up on the house I wanted to dig him up and shoot him again.

ROFLMAO

Once lived in a house where a man shot and killed his wife then drove to his mother in laws house and shot and killed her too before killing himself. The house did give me the chills sometimes. Especially the cold winters.ha.

If you've ever rented a motel/hotel room, you've crashed on a mattress where multiple stabbings have taken place.

We were debating buying a house where 2 murders were committed (drug dealing). We and the real estate gal referred to it as "The Murder House".

We backed out due to the amount of fixing up it needed. House was huge...!
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 8:13:17 AM EDT
No problem. Probably get a good price on it.

Good idea! Never thought of that!

BTW, would it matter if someone had been killed in self-defense, or if they just died of old age in the house?

I live in a pretty old house. The floor beams are hand-hewn and still have the bark on their sides. Construction is pin and tenon. It's OLD. WHO KNOWS what has happened here in the past. Sure, weird things seem to happen from time to time, but I don't think it's anything to be afraid of. Noises, doors opening by themselves, etc. I must admit, it is a little creepy at times, though.
Link Posted: 2/18/2006 8:35:26 AM EDT
Sure, Actaully, Statistically speaking, the odds of another violent crime happening in that same house is near zero..

My sons best friends little brother (well 17) came into his Mom and Step-Dads house a couple months ago and shot them both.The Step Dad was shot twice then he unloaded on his mother( she died while her husband was crawling to the neighbors house to get help).The Step -Dad has returned to the house and the older brother bought the house beside him.

I dont know if I could go thru that or not. I think he sees it as a way to stay close to her and not overrun his life.The older brother was hit pretty hard but seems to be doing well.

I've lived in one for 23 years and counting...No problem.
