Amanda Knox house: Realtors struggle to sell house where Knox lived

The Amanda Knox house is for sale -- the house where Meredith Kercher was murdered. On April 7, The Inquisitr reported that realtors recently reduced the price of the home located in Perugia, Italy by $100,000 after the listing price of $630,000 didn't attract any buyers. Perhaps the price wasn't the problem...

"The owner of the property really wants to sell the house. But it has not been easy to find potential buyers who are willing to overlook the fact that a brutal murder took place there," said an agent working for the real estate agency. Obviously the home owner wants to move on from the negativity.

The Amanda Knox house isn't something that people are super interested in -- and for good reason. Living in a home where someone was murdered isn't exactly on the top of people's "to do" lists. Given the nature of the real estate market now, it's hard to sell any house -- and adding a "murder feature" certainly isn't doing anyone any favors.

While it's not the owner's fault, you can imagine how hesitant (or completely disinterested) someone might be when it comes to even looking at the house. Would you pay half a million bucks for a house where someone was murdered? Do you think the house will eventually sell?

Should the Amanda Knox house be torn down?
