    Yep. Death happens. It wouldn’t bother me 

    the only exception for me would be if it was a family member who died in the home

    Not sure how its creepy. People die, its pretty much one of lifes few guarantees. I’d rather pass in the comfort of my own home. So nope, wouldn’t think twice about it. I’m assuming the body isn’t still there when I move in. 😎

    It would be weird if someone had been murdered there, but a natural death wouldn’t bother me. It’s part of the circle of life.

    Unless it is a brand new build, I think chances are high that an older home would have had someone who had passed in it. Nbd.

    I grew up in a very old house. I’m sure that at some point someone died there. It’s not a big deal.

    That someone died in? Sure, if we are talking some normal way of dying, like illness, accident, old age. 

    I would have some reservations if the house was used as the butchering hole for some serial killer or was found to have an Austrian style sex dungeon with bodies lining the walls in the basement. Or if multiple people independent of each other were known to have hung themselves there. 

    Basically if it was something so freakish/out of the ordinary I would be hesitant. 

    It would also matter how long ago it was and whether other regular families had lived there in between it happening and the house being sold now. The closer proximity to the event the worse it would feel, whereas 200 years distance would be more like an intriguing history of the house.

    Sure, I mean, unless the body is still there.

    Of course!  In the uk much of the housing stock is hundreds of years old so they’ll have been plenty of births, deaths and other carrings on.

    I wouldn’t care unless it was a particularly gruesome mass murder/suicide house. Even then, it’s not so much fear of “haunting” than just people that would be drawn to the house for morbid interests.

    This is a tricky one for me. Some of you may scoff, but I do believe in ghosts. 

    I currently live in a condo building that was built in the 1970’s…so I am 100% confident people have passed away in this building. We are the 7th or 8th owners of this particular unit…while we don’t know for sure, it wouldn’t surprise me if someone had passed away in my actual condo at some point too. I have lived here for almost a year and haven’t had any ghostly encounters, so I feel pretty ok about it.

    However: in my early 20’s me and a few friends rented a townhouse that was FOR SURE haunted. Turns out a little boy had died there decades ago (he wasn’t murdered, he died of childhood illness). After a few too many hair raising experiences we terminated our lease early and left after barely four months. Even typing this still makes my skin crawl!

    chiefbee :  As others have said, as long as it were natural deaths and not murders, I’d be fine with it. My grandparents both died in their home, so I can’t imagine why someone would not want to buy it just because of that reason. They both passed peacefully surrounded by family, so there should be nothing “creepy” about it. I think many people associate death with ghost, but as long as it was a peaceful passing, it should be all good.

    countrygirll :  it depends. if it was a death by natural causes sure I guess… if it was some crazy murder scene.. probably not. so basically if it was a violent death = no, otherwise yes (unless the house gave me some weird vibes)
