Startup Q&A: Roy Condrey, Founder, DiedInHouse.com

DiedInHouse.com founder Roy Condrey is breaking new ground in property transactions in the US, with a service that can search the history of a property to determine if it carries any dark secrets, prior to your signing the contract. Roy spoke to AGENT about the history of his startup to date.

DIEDinHouse.com solves a significant problem, both for household property owners and tenants in the United States. Roy Condrey, founder, DiedInHouse.com, set up the business as a database to help property hunters find out everything about the history of a particular house before signing any contracts.

Roy was inspired to create this due diligence database when one of his own tenants texted him in the middle of the night, asking if he knew his house was haunted. A curious—and probably spooked—Condrey was unable to find any proof or data online confirming whether his property had been the site of some gruesome crime or fatality. He also discovered that in many US states, death in a home is not regarded as a material defect on the property and so does not have to be disclosed.

If you could find out if someone died in your house, would you want to know? Founded in 2013 by software engineer Roy Condrey, DiedInHouse.com allows users to search an address to see if it had a dark former life (or even accommodates the afterlife). From murders and suicides to meth activity and arson, DiedInHouse uses data from over 130 million police records, news reports, old death certificates and more to determine if your house has seen horrors.

The website’s creation begins like a ghost story. Three years ago, Condrey received a text message in the middle of the night from one of his tenants that read: “Did you know that your house is haunted?” Condrey went down a cyber rabbit hole seeking, but not finding, an easy way to determine if his property had indeed seen a gruesome crime or fatality.

“I went online to find a ‘Carfax’ of sorts for deaths in homes and I didn’t find anything, but I did find pages and pages of people asking if there’s a way to find out if their house is haunted,” says Condrey, who rents his a number of his properties. He later learned through his data collection that, in fact, at least 4.5 million homes nationwide have had documented deaths take place on the premises. The number of homeowners that know about the history of their home is unknown.
