Real estate mission impossible? Murder home may struggle to sell

A home in Edmonton where a man killed his family, including two young children, in 2014 is on the market but locals aren’t convinced that it will get much interest.

The 83 Street home was listed after the mortgage company foreclosed and the asking price is $365,000, far lower than similar properties in the neighbourhood, which are being marketed at $419,000 and above.

Metro News reports that as in most of Canada there is no obligation for the seller to divulge a property’s past, however gruesome, unless the buyer asks.

Some neighbours would like to see the house torn down and replaced in a bid to move on from the tragedy that it represents.
