I’m sure that each state differs, but I typically choose to disclose when in doubt. The tenants or buyers will discover it soon enough anyway.
I like your “unnatural” description. I simply refer to mine as my murder house when not talking to prospects. I disclose the death upfront on the phone and my best guess is that it disturbs about 50% of the callers. Unfortunately, this house also has a layout issue which was not apparent to me at the time of purchase. It’s not that bad, but when combined with the death, this particular house is a challenge to move when it becomes vacant.
That said, I’d buy another murder house if I thought the numbers made it worthwhile. Hope that helps…
