Been hearing strange noises in the night? Thinking your house just may be haunted?
Well, now you can get answers, at DiedInHouse.com.
Roy Condrey started the site after one of his tenants told him he believed the rental property was haunted; Condrey did some digging, and learned that in most states, there’s no law requiring home sellers or real estate agents to disclose a death that took place in a residence.
For $11.99, a search on his website – which was a year in the making – will dig through multiple sources to see if anyone spent their last days at your address. Coast to Coast AM says the site scours millions of records. (In Texas, for example, you might want to avoid the Fort Worth home where a drunk woman hit a homeless man with her car and left him to die in her garage.)
Condrey says a death on-site can reduce a property’s value by 15% to 25%. But lately, he says, some realtors have been coming around, even using his site to run their own searches.
Reminder that PEOPLE DIE EVERYWHERE. There is no correlation between deaths and hauntings that has ever been established. Because hauntings have never been established. However, the first thing people do when they suspect they have a ghost is find out who died there, connect that to a ghost and a legend is born. Now everything even slightly odd is attributed to the ghost. That’s good for people who want to make their house feel more exciting but there is no basis in reality.
