So, you’re alive. Good job on that. But do you know if someone ever died in your house? Do you? How can you know for sure?
Fortunately there’s a website to help you find out. It’s called diedinhouse.com. These people will solve the age-old problem of determining whether or not you’re living in a home where someone previously died. For just $11.99 the site will give you piece of mind like never before. Or if you want to conduct 30 searches, they’ll give you a deal of only $269.70!. At that price, you might as well look up all of your friends and neighbors! Just think of the fun dinner party conversation:
Hey guys, did you know that someone here is living in a home where someone died???See, good times had by all! But don’t take this hypothetical situation as your only proof. Take a look at this house in Wichita:
Holy shit! I’m selling my house immediately! Actually, you know what, I can’t live with the guilt on my conscience of having sold a death house to someone else, just burn it to the ground and start anew!
Looks fine, doesn’t it. Not so fast! Just wait until you hear the full story:
Diane Boyle, 54, a retired nurse, said she was furious when she learned, months after she bought the home that it was the scene of the BTK murder. She felt that it should have been disclosed. She stated, “that she had known, she probably would have bought the house anyway, but that she ‘wouldn’t have paid as much.’Right. If only the buyer had known this was the place where someone had died, she still would have bought the house but she would have paid less!
Wouldn’t you want the same for your family?
And just think about this unusually capitalized marketing copy from the company:
"A 2007 Associated Press Poll found that 1/3 of Americans admit to believing in Ghosts. A death in a home can impact its value and length of time to sell. Answer the five questions to see how Diedinhouse.comTM can help you."
That’s right, ghosts. Definitely don’t want to mess around with them. And that’s why you wouldn’t want to buy this house in Villisca, Iowa:
"The house in Villisca, IA where on June 10, 1912 two adults and 6 children were murdered in their sleep with an axe and no one was ever convicted of the crimes."
How could you ever sleep at night knowing that something terrible happened on this site 102 years ago? Thankfully, there’s diedinhouse.com. Make sure you check it out before you inadvertently end up buying a house like this one.
