Website Tells Home Buyers Who Died in Their New Home

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-10_3c0f5e6f44.jpgiStock/Thinkstock (HOUSTON) -- Prospective home buyers usually have a raft of questions, like how old is the boiler, or when was the roof last replaced, but one nagging question often goes unanswered: did anybody die here?  A new website, DiedInHouse.com, is seeking to change that. The Houston Chronicle reports the website was launched in June, and already has been slammed with thousands of requests. 

The site is the brainchild of Roy Condrey; DiedInHouse.com's CEO created the site after a tenant of his insisted his rental property in Columbia, S.C., was haunted.

"It occurred to me that a service which told people who died in their homes before they moved in would be popular. It's harder to find things like this out than you think," he told the paper.

Most states don't require realtors to disclose a home's ghostly or ghastly past, and so Condrey learned quickly how popular the $12 service his website provides has become.

"Some people don't have a problem with knowing someone died in their home.  But when you remind them that this knowledge could affect their home values, they change their tune," he said.
