There is a real estate agency in Japan that sells houses for up to 50% less than their market value, but there is a catch: they all have a very dark history.
Jobutsu Fudosan specializes in houses known as “rugged properties”, where tragic incidents have occurred. In Japan, sellers of such properties are required by law to report the occurrence of such incidents, which often results in a significant drop in the value of the property.
The company estimate that homes where “natural deaths” occur are reduced in price by up to 20 percent, while if a murder occurs on the property, the sale price is halved.
