The concept of "death houses" is controversial for many reasons. Oftentimes, houses where people died in rare tragic accidents, via violent murder, or by suicide are priced lower than their competitors. Some people simply refuse to consider renting or buying a house with a violent or morbid history, and the reasons can range from religious to superstitious, to respect for those grieving in the neighborhood.
Conversely, to others, it's just another house - and sometimes the most affordable option on the market. Plus, when you really get down to history, most neighborhoods are mired in gory memories, so to some drawing the line at a specific house with a recent history is missing the forest for the trees.
AITA for letting our kids play in the pool where a neighbor's child died and for not getting rid of the pool?
I know it’s really morbid, but my husband and I discussed it and we decided we could look past it. I mean we could never otherwise afford anything like it. It was big enough that all our kids could finally have their own bedrooms.
