Would you live in a house where someone was murdered?
The downside of a murder home is that it's creepy as hell. Whether or not a person believes in haunted houses and ghosts, it's really hard to get over the idea that someone killed another human being in the bedroom you're sleeping in—no matter how nice the crown molding is.
Worse yet, sometimes the person who committed the crime might never have been caught. Or they're in prison and are awaiting release. That's just too much for some people, even if it's incredibly unlikely anything would happen.
A murder house usually comes at a steep discount. People get rightly freaked out about living in a place where someone was murdered. But rationally, a murder house is no different than any other kind of house. It just had some more blood shed in it than your average place. The people might be guilty but the house is innocent.
Besides, the fact that a crime occurred there could be a great way to negotiate a better price for your dream home. That's definitely worth the off chance of an angry poltergeist throwing things around your home and terrorizing you at two o'clock in the morning.
