    Whoa. I don’t think I’d want to move there either.

    I’m in the no way camp.  Especially if I knew the details and did some reading on the case.  I would not be able to get it out of my mind and its the last thing I need to be thinking about in th comfort of my home.

    You’re definitely not being silly.. I would never live there. I’m guessing it’s really cheap because no one else wants to live there either.

    URGH! Not that I truly believe in ghosts and the afterlife, but I wouldn’t want to tempt fate here. No thanks!

    I’d probably tour the house and see if I could stand in the same rooms without thinking of the murders. If yes, I’d take it because it seems perfect – if not, I’d pass because I wouldn’t want to be haunted in my own home.

    Nope.  Mainly because I very much believe in ghosts.  I swear there’s a little girl living in our guest room…which actually leads me to believe there had been a murder in our house.  But I’m better off not knowing.

    Don’t live there!

    No way, I would never feel comfortable.

    Yes, but I might get someone to come and do a cleansing of the house before moving in.


    Don’t judge!

    Depends on the situation. Was the murder a freak incident, or might it be related to the fact that the house is in a bad area? How easy is it to break into the house?

    Rationally, my brain says that if it was just a freak incident, I would have no trouble living there. In reality, it would probably freak me out a bit, though having my two gigantic dogs with me at home makes me feel like I have superpowers. 

    If you choose to live there, I would ask about having a month-to-month lease instead of locking yourself in place for a year. And I would make sure any…erm… stains or damage has been dealt with, but I wouldn’t want to know anything about the murders. And if you don’t have a dog to cuddle with and make you feel safe, I would highly recommend it in a house like that!

    No way. I watch too much Investigation Discovery, my imagination is VERY healthy, and knowing something had already happened there would actually make me crazy.

    my immediate answer is no, because I could probably not stop thinking about it. 

    But if you are able to visit and spend some time in the house and get a feel for it – you may find that you don’t feel bothered by it.

    The rational side of me says that we all have been somewhere where something tragic has happened in history so it’s a no brainer… but the other side of me says eff no, I won’t go!

    I wouldn’t.  I don’t believe in ghosts or anything like that, but that’s just really really disturbing!
