Would it bother you to learn that someone had died in your house prior to you moving in?

No, I would find a house like that immediately because I'm weird. I might sage the house right away but I'd live there happily.

Not even a satanic cult murder suicide where the killer got away with a copy of the front door key would bother me.

If it was a recent murder, maybe. Aside from that, no.

10/22/13 1:08 pm

Two of the previous owners died in ours.

not unless they were murdered or committed suicide.

Several people have already died in the house we live in. I've never felt overly disturbed by it.

I believe in ghosts I don't know who ghosts actually are but I've seen them sometimes. And if you think about it they would be everywhere! I think this concerning how many people died in history of the planet. on the site of anyones house is the site where other people lived before.. now ghosts.

How about would it bother you that someone died in the hospital you go to for medical emergencies??

well, no, I don't have to live there. haha I know people who are freaked out by hospitals, though.

it really depends on how they died and what happened in the house. I answered yes mainly because it's possible that it would freak me out. I guess I'd rather live somewhere that didn't have a history involving someone's death.

I went with no, because that happened to us. We have also had one death in the house since we moved in.

That would be totally awesome. I'd probably hold a seance or bless the house or something.

Having had this happen...not really. I found it a bit odd, considering that throughout her (the woman who died) life the basement acted as an oversized litter box for all the stray cats in town.

My MIL died in bedroom across hall from me. Not a problem. Grandaughter moved into same room about a month later. No problem. Woman who owned house before died in our bedroom. No problem. Circle of life. No problem.

Now. If a serial killer had murdered someone in that house, it would give me pause. But probably not cause me to not move in.

Depends on how. Natural causes, nope. Murder etc, ummmm yeah.

No, my mother-in-law passed away at our house. She had been very sick. We have built all the homes we have lived in, so unless an ax murderer was buried on the land, I am not too concerned.

10/21/13 6:06 pm

I would be SOL, because our house was built in 1880, 60 years before we had a mortuary in the area. I sleep in the parlor, where friends and neighbors would come to view the body of the deceased.

Eh, depends on the method of death. My great great grandmother died in the house I grew up in. However, she was an old woman who died because she was old. Now a violent murder would bother me.

10/21/13 4:56 pm

I live in one such house. Bought it cash outright. It was an old cat lady who owned it and the placed smelled horrid. I had to gut it floor to ceiling and remodel it but it was worth it. :)

Only if they died from something in the house that would pose a safety hazard, i.e. collapsed structure or toxic substances.

Yes. Creepy!
My best friends dad killed himself in the house and they will never sell it!
Small town, rumors, etc

10/21/13 3:27 pm

Yes, but a great deal depends on the circumstances. Natural causes probably no. Murder, etc not likely. Not informed, let the legal action begin.

I dunno if it would stop me from moving in. If I knew what room and how I'd get heebies. I used to work on foreclosed houses and we used to tease coworkers about stories of how people died in the houses. Can be spooky being in an abandoned house

When I was a sophomore in high school, we moved to a house where a man died a few months before we moved in. He happened to die in my bedroom too.

Depends. If it was a suicide or murder, yes. If it was natural causes, no.

What's the difference if you don't mind me asking?

I live in a 180 year-old house in which the original couple died at home within 4 days of each other in 1895. I would bloody LOVE to see a ghost, but won't because there are no ghosts.

Depends how they died i don't to be finding body parts all over the place

I would't care. The problem is all the superstitious idiots when you eventually try to sell the house will care.

10/21/13 1:59 pm

Not at all. If it was a rich guy I would have séances so I could get savvy financial advice for free

a preacher died in my home. and a kid was killed by a car in front of it.. this in a town of less than a 1000

Died? No. Murdered? Yeah, probably.

centexken Republic of Texas

Only if the body wasn't removed right away.

10/21/13 1:12 pm

Why would this bother me? God himself is watching over me, what can dead people do?

cyanospool The Deep North
10/21/13 1:04 pm

Not one bit. Fun fact: old Pagan belief is that a home is protected once the first head of the household has died in it. While I'm agnostic and don't believe in ghosts, I adhere to the traditions so that knowledge would have some sentimental comfort.

cyanospool The Deep North

Unless of course I learned they died in a horrible way and suffered. Then I would feel bad, but it wouldn't make me uncomfortable to live in the same house.

10/21/13 12:49 pm

Totally depends. If I found out by uncovering the body in the drywall, it would be a little unsettling. How long ago would maybe play into that as well, not sure.

musicfreak Loving Life
10/21/13 12:23 pm

It depends.
If someone was murdered I would be a little bit freaked out.
If someone just died naturally that would be fine.

I'd like to think not, but dark stormy nights would probably change my mind on the matter

Depends. Were they killed by evil spirits? Or did they just die of old age.

If they were giving me the tour and said," This is the rafter they hung them selfs on." That might make me feel weird.

The house I grew up in really was haunted. I have a few stories.

10/21/13 11:38 am

It depends. Did I stumble across the body while cleaning the basement? Is there a satanic altar in my backyard?
