I would not.

Would you ever live in a house in which you knew a violent murder or suicide had taken place?

What if it was the house of your dreams and well below your budgeted price range?

Nope. Can't do it. In fact, we had a friend commit suicide a month ago and it was a little creepy just to be in the house afterward comforting her husband and son.

Could NOT live there.

um, maybe? I mean, do I know the people that were killed? How long ago was the crime committed?

Jo said...

I'm with regan.... in the maybe range. If it was someone I did not know... and long enough ago, I might do it. Of course, I'd have to have the ghosthunters come and make sure any ghosties were nice.

It would depend on what "vibe" I get when I walked in the place. I'm a believer that sometimes that "energy" stays there. I would have to be certain all that negative stuff had been cleared out of there. When we were house shopping, we saw a house were a murder had happened. I didn't know it until after we saw it, but the house didn't feel "creepy" to me. So the short answer is maybe.

Are the windows covered in flies?

Absolutely. Good deals are too few to pass up. Why? Do you know of a place? I'm in the market, you know...

I don't think so..but i am unsure. It seems a little creepy. Bad vibes! Think 6th sense or something!! "I see dead people" Nope, not me i think it would always be in the back of my mind eveytime something creeked or groaned!

I have. It was fine and didn't feel odd at all. And how do you know you haven't? :)

Watercolor said...

And I have friends who still live in the house where her husband killed himself. She says it was weird at first but then got easier and now is oddly comforting to know they live where he spent his last moments.

Ok, I want to know WHY you are even asking this question. Have you found some kind of killer deal on a creepy house? No pun intended there, I promise. I just realized that I said "killer" deal. I should probably just delete this comment.....

i have friends that lived in a huge nice house that the teenager that lived there before them killed himself in the garage AND a little girl was killed in the house before them...The house was haunted(if you believe in it, and I do) by the little girl in the master bedroom and the teenage boy in his old bedroom. Their teenage daughter had his old room and she wouldn't stay in the house alone. She was so scared because they all had seen the ghosts. They don't live there anymore. We didn't know this until over breakfast one morning after we had just spent the night. FREAKED ME OUT!!!!!!!!

SO, hell no!

Sharon said...

No. I'd swear it was cursed.

Nicole Bradshaw said...

I'm in the maybe range. I agree with Kayra about the "energy" I felt when I went in there and trusting my gut.

That said, I would LOVE to live in a restored historic home. And I can't imagine there are too many of them out there that SOMEONE hasn't died in . . .

Sandi said...

Are you in the housing market?
It would depend on the house, really. If it is your dream house, it might be worth the sacrifice.
That was not a pun.

I grew up in a house where my uncle committed suicide in the living room. My grandparents walked through his blood when they walked in the door.
It was just something we lived with.
To live in another house where this took place-I don't think I could.

Holly's boyfriend died in her parents' basement, and we lived there when we first got married. Wasn't a violent death, though.
