Before buying your home, you might have asked your real estate agent a few questions about the history of the house. But while you may have been told the age of the property or clued in on other structural details, you probably weren’t told if a person ever died in your future home-sweet-home.
DiedInHouse lets home buyers and renters know if a particular home was ever the setting of a suicide, a murder, or the scene of another gruesome crime. It does so using data from over 130 million police records, news reports, and old death certificates.
'Carfax' for home history
“I went online to find a ‘Carfax’ of sorts for deaths in homes and I didn’t find anything, but I did find pages and pages of people asking if there’s a way to find out if their house is haunted,” Condrey told Forbes.
“The realtor is trying to sell, so they won’t disclose if they don’t have to,” he said. But those who are curious can find out for themselves on DiedInHouse.com.
