This site pulls records to help you find out if anyone has died inside of your home

Sounds kind of morbid right?  Knowing that someone passed away in your home before you moved in an be an unsettling feeling.  When I lived in New Jersey, I roomed with four people who were convinced there was a friendly presence living with us.  I heard about this website called DiedinHouse.com and couldn't help myself so, I paid the $11.99 and entered the address of our house.

Each DiedinHouse.com report includes:

  • Records of death occurrences inside the home
  • Fire related incidents
  • A list of names associated to the address
  • Registered sex offenders who have lived there
  • METH LAB activity
  • Records of any flooding

When I searched the home we were living in, it showed our names and how long we'd been living there.  It also showed the names of every person who lived there before us. Fortunately, there were no deaths, flooding, fires, or meth labs.

Why is there a DiedinHouse.com?

In Most states, a death in a home, no matter how it occurred, is not considered a "Material Fact" and it's not required to be disclosed. A murder could have occurred days ago and the seller does not have to let you know.  A death in a home, especially a violent death, can decrease the home's value by 25% and increase it's times to sell by up to 50% longer than comparable homes.
