A famous murder/suicide? You can find plenty of people who will pay top dollar just to say they live at the house of a famous murder.

Regular everyday murder? You're gonna be lowering the price a bit.

If I work near this home, it was for sale, and it was within my budget, I would buy it in a sec...

There was a murder suicide in my old neighborhood. I told my old high school girlfriend to pick it up on the cheap for her kid

Hell yeah, IIRC its got a boathouse out back!

Its on Long Island though, so you better have a pretty big budget.

So... what I'm hearing is you can get a 20% discount on a house if there's a murder there?

It would've sold for a lot more if the house didn't come with Kato Kaelin.

As long as it has purple drapes I'm in.

Well, my murder would have a very negative impact. Lots of haunting.
 
2022-05-15 9:56:12 PM  
Considering how many people are killed or have been killed in our spectacular history I'm surprised that these places aren't a dime a dozen
 
2022-05-15 9:56:49 PM  
If you buy a murder house, and a nosey neighbor comes over to ask if you knew that was a murder house, just answer "Blood calls to blood".
 
2022-05-15 9:58:10 PM  
Just tell the prospective buyers if they don't make a reasonable offer there will be more murders in the house.
 
2022-05-15 9:58:35 PM  
I think I see a way to bring down home prices in my area...BRB.

I think I heard that it was bulldozed.  That would be a  hard sell.

The prices are to die for.

Make sure to murder them outside the house for just this reason.
 
2022-05-15 10:08:22 PM  
You hire an amateur author to pen a detailed story based loosely on the murder, including money or jewels stashed in the house as motive.

Then, when all the legal hurdles have cleared and you can actually sell the house, every idiot that can read (i.e. arrogant people with money that just know they are the smartest person in the room) will put an offer on the house, looking for that treasure.

Bonus round, leave an empty lock box with a torn note, only half a phone number and one earing.  The mystery opens the door for sequels...

Stigmatized properties include places that have been impacted by events such as murder, suicide, a notorious previous owner, and alleged occurrences like hauntings.

I'd buy haunted houses on the cheap any chance I could get. Because, they are not haunted.

Nope. Nicole's house is still there. The address has been changed.

O.J's house has been demolished.

Stambovsky v Ackley.  Read the judge's opinion.  Holy crap, funniest suit ever.
 
2022-05-15 10:20:32 PM  
What they should do is have the local government buy it, raze the house, and leave the property unused for an extended period, like 100 years.

Used to live around the corner from and walk my dogs by the house Bundy lived in while he was going to the University of Utah. Whenever it was up for rent it would go pretty quickly. It's a rather posh neighborhood now.

I'll be damned if I let the former residents live rent free in my attic! And I ain't havin' none of that poltergeist nonsense either!

I like the design, but not necessarily the location.

If you play it right, that also means there will be a newly-single emotionally-fragile widow.

How to sell a murder house .. It helps if you remove the bodies before showing to possible buyers ..
 
2022-05-15 10:43:41 PM  
It's hard to trick someone into killing their spouse just because you want to buy the property but it's worth it.;
 
2022-05-15 10:45:48 PM  
You know how to tell if a house is haunted?

It's not.

Because if you leave the land fallow, a new house will grow.  People just aren't patient.

Anyone rich enough to buy OJ's land would easily be rich enough to level it and put a much better house on it. His was very outdated and nowhere near what modern LA rich folks expect. The neighborhood can't be beat. So clearly the house had to go.

So if I break in and kill a family of five is the house free?

True story - my neighbor was recently stabbed to death in her home by her schizophrenic adult son. The house is currently up for sale by her other son. Zillow reports that the price has gone UP $34k above list.

San Diego suburbs...

There was a murder house up the street when I was a kid that sat empty for a long time before quickly passing through a few owners' hands. It was, naturally, rumored to be haunted. The eventual owner who stuck around and remodeled discovered that the house's electrical issues had been caused by bullets.

/neighborhood boys did some B&E and found a box of Playboys, LOL

The church was the first organisation to ever capitalize on ghost stories!

Depending on where you live, it can be completely legal for a realtor to leave out a home's grizzly history.

That doesn't seem fair, though.  But if you move to the country, don't be stupid.

What is this, notalwaysright? That's not how a multi-discount works at all. You're still gonna pay about 33%.

As a Goth, I would love to own murder house. Just wish it was my ex-girlfriends house I was buying, but she isn't dead. :(

My wife and I bought a murder/suicide house.  We didn't find out until after the paperwork was signed.  Our neighbors sold last fall for $600k and we paid less than half that for twice the house.
