    No way in hell I would buy a house someone had been murdered in.

    It might read a bit funny if the ad said...

    'Great property for families or retirees.....who don't mind if someone has been murdered there.' :P

    We've been advised by fair trading not to advertise the fact there was a murder as it may attract people just wanting to check it out so I've told the owner and solicitor it has to be put in the contract so it's clear and disclosed to all interested parties - I think once someone shows interest when I do the call backs or when they ask for the contract I'll explain to them why the clause is in there but as mentioned under the privacy act I can't tell them exactly what happened and that if they want to know more they have to make their own enquiries

    I really want to get a great price for the owners so I'm hoping a lot of the buyers won't be too scared off ! When you know what happened you do look at the home differently but the more I go there the less it seems to bother me - the good thing is the current tenant has it looking really great and they have 3 kids so it honestly it just feels like a normal happy family home!

    Yep I think so. If it was 20 years ago, I would probably buy the murder house.

    I wouldn't, sorry.

    Only because I'd be worried about going through all of that (but from the sellers perspective) when I would sell the property further down the track.

    But I wouldn't buy a house on a main road etc for that very reason too.

    Id buy it if it was going for a song in Sydney, anything to get on the property ladder in this crazy market! If we could afford a choice, then maybe not, more so for the resale value than anything else.

    Auction is this Saturday!!!! Inspections have been good and as soon as someone asks for a contract or 2nd inspection we've told them the history, it's probably turned off half of those interested as expected
    I'm hoping we will have at least 3 or 4 bidders, the owners just want it sold , most of the feedback is around $800k so expecting owners to set a reserve around that - our auctioneer recommended we get any registered bidders to sign a statement saying they are aware and have been told what happened to cover us so hopefully we will get the owners a great result in Saturday!
