After a recent marathon of American Horror Story and the thriller flick Mama starring Jessica Chastain, I just need to know ONE thing. Was anyone killed, murdered, and/or dismembered in my 100-year-old townhouse??
Sure, when you’re the first tenant to ever rent or live in a brand new property, you think, “Ah, clean slate.” But let’s not forget what we learned from Poltergeist — your new home may have been built on top of an ancient Indian burial ground! You’re never safe from the tortured souls of the past. Maybe you don’t believe in any of that or could care less if someone was strangled in your bedroom as long as it brings down the asking price, BUT if you are mildly curious, there’s a search program for that. Of course, there is.
With justifiable marketing savvy, DiedinHouse.com launched a week ago. For $11.99 for one search, why take any chances when on the house hunt? Some states are not required to disclose this fact…and if you knew a homicide occurred behind closed doors, it could actually help you close. Though personally, I could never stomach living in the shadow of a former crime scene.
Here’s a sample description you may receive on a property:
Their Facebook page seems to be more engaging than their web site. Check it out and see if you recognize any of the homes:
Nice niche you’ve found there. Congrats, Died In House, you’ve made my DigiDay!
