Different states have different rules about what has to be disclosed. Almost all of them have to disclose known defects even in an "as is" sale. A realtor can choose to disclose other information.

He now says that he did some of the killing but his sister, Dawn killed as well, then he had to kill her in self defense.
Oh yeah, I don't believe in the story it self, but it did make me question whether I would buy something like that. I also believe in spirits and "energy" or whatever you wanna call it. But I would never be able to shake the heebee jeebies!

I am the same way, I don't want to feel any "bad energy" or remnants of bad energy, i like to sleep peacefully at night.

I remember laughing and laughing at it over and over when I was a kid, as I was very into slasher pics and, as a fairly little kid, watched Amityville and was like 'why don't they just LEAVE?! If the house told me to get out and started bleeding about the walls, I'd be hightailing it to grandma's!

Idk, because most of time DH and I purchase homes that are usually fixer upper/bank owned types - so there's no way of knowing the history, or what lurks.

Crazy story - Our last home was built in 1884 and we had the delightful experience of the psycho previous owner (who we did not know) come by to warn us that the house was haunted by the ghosts of John and Mary. To say the least, it frightened our young kids.

Anyways, we always pray/bless our homes the first night upon moving in them. Always.

It depends for me. I'm not a believer in ghosts and spirits, my only hesitations would arise from whether it was properly cleaned after or if everyone in the neighborhood would look at me funny/no one would ever come into my house.

My home growing up was built in 1891 so I'm sure something has happened in it or around it. Maybe not a murder, but possibly other things. It doesn't bother me still. We've had it from 1992-present.

My home used to a factory of underthings for the stylish gentleman. Occasionally I will receive a call from some telephonic misanthrope who is aggressively inquiring about a missing delivery of striped dainties...

I have never heard of people moving into a home with stuff still in it from previous owners aside from asking for things like the 'fridge or washer/dryer to convey) or things found in the walls (newspapers as insulation..etc) during renovations. Very interesting to me. I always wish we had that history here but so little was/is preserved that most of the really old stuff is museum/tour type stuff not personal residences.
My friends bought a house and in the attic in the very back corner they found a KKK flag, the outfit with the white hood etc and a bunch of KKK booklets etc.

I agree with others that it depends on the history. A locally (or larger) famous grusome murder, no. Someone died there. Sure.

The area I live in has a lot of old houses I'm going to guess that in the 200-ish years many of them have been standing at least one person died in most of them.
