A Nice Place to Visit, But… (OT)

Last month, dozens of people came to visit Stephen Grant’s Michigan home, on display in advance of a foreclosure sale (the bank had taken over the home because Stephen hadn’t made any payments since February, when he allegedly dismembered his wife Tara, hid her torso in the garage and other parts of her body nearby, then reported her missing) — but when it came time to place a bid on the house, nobody was interested.

The home was listed at just over $220,000, more than $45,000 below its appraised value. A local real estate agent says he doubts a house with this history could sell for more than $150,000.

So I’m going to throw out a question here: What sort of discount would it take for you to buy a home that was the site of a recent, gory, highly-publicized murder?
