    Would you live here?

    I've been looking around lately to get a larger home for the family, and I thought I had found one (finally!!)
    Right price, right area..everything we need, until I asked around the neighbours and found out that a previous owner had blown their head off in the kitchen with a longarm. (Agent forgot to tell us that one )

    Question is..would you live in a house where something similar or horrific had happened?

    I've said NO outright to the wife. I'm not living there..I reckon its bad mojo

    I wouldn't live somewhere if the threat still exists (e.g. someone murdered by neighborhood criminals), but I would live there if the threat is now gone (suicide like in the house you're talking about). Something horrific has happened everywhere at some point in history or prehistory.

    Not only would I live there, I would negotiate a lower price on the house.

    Building my own home is nice because there's no baggage about what people did here before. I'm not at all worried about where someone blew their head off in here. Although I am a little concerned about the Indian burial ground we built on.

    I thought you blokes down there had eliminated guns.

    Didn't work out for that guy, what?

    I would have no trouble living there, so long as the place was properly cleaned.

    Yep, sounds like you get yourself a nice bargaining tool!

    As long as the house is not like a tourist attraction because of media attention. Like the Amittyville Horror house that the movie was based on, it always attracts people who drive by and stop for photos. Oh yea, make sure it was not the house that made him blow his head off!

    AS long as it was cleaned up and repainted then I wouldn't have a problem.

    I'm with the "good cleaning and fresh paint" crowd. The houses on either side of me have had people die in them, one from a heart attack in the living room, one from a suicide by gun in the back yard. If a house is old enough, it will have seen some horrific stuff, no matter where it is.

    I'd probably do a spiritual cleansing on the place though. Don't need that kind of bad energy to hang around.
