Here is an interesting NBC New article about deaths in real properties and how it affects their value. In Michigan, it is not necessary for a seller to disclose a death in the house. The law reflects the idea that someone dying in a house does not affect its value. That doesn't mean that potential buyers are not concerned about it. Now there is a website consumers can check diedinhouse.com. I wonder how accurate it is? Before paying for a search at this site, the first step would be to ask the seller the question outright. Legally, they cannot lie to a direct question. If someone still has doubts or concerns, then I guess the website would be the next step.
Great info on everything real estate.
