Serious question. How many of you truly know the past history of the house that you are living in? Who has lived there, who might have died there, what events both big and small took place there? The reason that I ask is because I found out over this past weekend that there was a suicide attempt a few years back at the house we just bought. The guy didn't die on the premises but died at the hospital about a week later from his wounds. This was back about maybe 8 years ago and we purchased the house from the couple who bought it just afterwards and renovated it. I'm not so sure that if knowing ahead of time would have changed our opinion on buying the house or not but it would have been nice to know this in advance nonetheless. It's kind of creepy in a way I guess but in talking to a realtor that I know, he told me that this sort of thing is waaaay more common than people realize. In most states, there's no legal need to disclose whether a murder or suicide took place on a property and he told me that many many folks are living in homes right now where someone has died before and have no idea. Creepy huh? personally, I don't mind it so much. So long as the family is happy and the home is full of good vibes, I don't see the issue. But I just thought that was astounding that it's totally legal to keep that stuff secret!
