How much would you pay for a murder house?

Not so hypothetical question-

My husband and I have been going through many legal loopholes to buy a house… in which a man killed his wife and children.

The house has an approximate valuation of $750k, and the market we’re in is HOT. Bidding wars are almost always expected, houses are sold within a couple days after being listed, and every month prices on houses are jumping multiple thousands of dollars.

Originally our Max offer was $500k, then $550, and now we’re learning the sellers may want north of $600k. Our offer will be conditional on a positive home inspection and seeing the house to ensure there aren’t any pests or other damage from it sitting vacant. We don’t want to offend the sellers with too low an offer as to close off negotiations, but we also don’t want to overbid and be trapped in an overpriced home we may struggle to sell later. The house unfortunately has a lot of notoriety and we’d need to install a pretty significant security system to deal with true-crime clout chasers and also many aesthetic changes to make the home harder to notice after its image was blasted after the crime.

Some facts about it: Less than 10 years old In a very safe neighborhood Largest in the area, (no comps,) with over 4K square feet and 1k+ more in unfinished basement. Small front and backyard
