    Might somebody have died in this house?

    Think you're witnessing paranormal activity at home? Forget ghost hunters — there's a website for that.

    Homeowners and renters can now get answers at DiedInHouse.com, which for $11.99 will tell you if anyone has died in your home.

    The site, a sort of Carfax meets afterlife history report, scours multiple sources to determine if anyone has departed this life in your home before.

    It's a task that's easier said than done, according to the site's founder Roy Condrey.

    "It's harder to find things like this out than you think," he told the Houston Chronicle.

    After Condrey learned that most states do not require home sellers or real estate agents to disclose a death there, he sought to create a service that provided death records for a specific address, according to his website.

    That information might seem to make it tougher for realtors to sell a possibly-haunted property, but one survey finds that prospective buyers aren't easily spooked out of buying ghoulish real estate.

    Realtor.com's 2013 Haunted Housing Report found that 26 percent of the 1,400 people surveyed indicated they would consider buying a haunted house.
