A home that had murder, suicide, grow house operation, or experienced water damage or flooding in the past would definitely affect the value of the property if known.
If a real estate agent knows about a murder, they are obligated to disclose this under their Code of Ethics to unwary buyers. The problem is if the agent doesn't know about it, there is nothing to disclose.
That's why housecreep is developed. On the website, you can search an address to find out if the property has a history of murder, crime, brothel, gravesite, drug operation. It is useful for any prospective buyer or renter.
