Purchasing a new home is a big commitment, one that takes substantial researching, thinking, and money. You would want to find out when the house was built, when was it renovated, or even who, if anyone, died in it.
A software development company based in Charleston, South Carolina, created Died in House to provide prospective and existing homeowners an “accurate” history report on whether or not a death occurred at a house. For $11.99 you get a somewhat “certified” report about the history of your home.
While the site does search through over 100 million records from 50 states, the company does not guarantee the information is completely accurate and reliable. However, sample reports did reveal the house where Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994.
Real estate agents are not required disclose deaths that occurred on the property, but sometimes our curiosity gets the better of us. If you are not afraid of what you might find, go to their website and see if you are sharing your house with ghost or two.
