Did Someone Die in this House?
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.
