    If you bought a house and then after closing you found out that something horrible happened there, such as a rape, murder, or murder-suicide, would you be upset about it? Do you think that information should be disclosed to potential buyers?

    I would want something like that disclosed to me before I bought it. whether I then bought it would depend on whether this was an isolated event or if that is a common occurrence in that area. My DH always checks the crime stats on an area before even looking at the listings.

    Did this happen to you??

    Oh I saw this in the news too. I would be curious about the crime rate. And if the crime caused any sort of damage (violent axe thing, arson, etc).
    I have no belief in the supernatural whatsoever though, so the ideas of ghosts or spirits or bad vibes or whatever wouldn't bug me at all. In fact, since it bugs so many other people, it would probly be a good way to pick up something cheap! lol

    No it didn't happen to me, but I saw a story on the news about a woman who was upset that a murder-suicide had occurred in the home she bought and she didn't find out until after she bought it. Turns out it's illegal for realtors to just disclose that information since it's not pertaining to the actual home in any way, just an even that happened, but could still lower the property value since so many people are superstitious or believers of the paranormal. It just made me curious, so I thought I'd ask it here.

    Personally, I would like to know, but just because I'm a curious person. It wouldn't actually affect my purchase and I wouldn't be upset if I found out after the fact.
