— The home where one of the Triangle’s most infamous murders took place is on the market again.

The owners of 1810 Cedar St. in Durham are asking $2.1 million for the 9,200-square-foot house, where former owner Michael Peterson killed his wife, Kathleen, in 2001.

Peterson is serving life in prison for her murder.

The home was in disrepair when it sold for $640,000 in July of 2004 after sitting on the market for several months.

    ditto narck9 - who cares.

    I'm a working person. I would never be able to even look at a house like that. I work a nine to five job. I don't make that kind of money. And if I did, I don't think I would want to look at that house.

    Are we really going to have to hear every time this house goes on the market? Who really cares?

    spiritwarriorwoman-sounds like it was renovated with blood,sweat and tears unfortunately. I have a great idea for the house:bring back Mike Peterson and chunk him down the stairs until he meets the same fate as his prior two wives. sale tickets and make money for the families involved.

    If memory serves me right...whether someone has died in a house is NOT a "material fact" and is not required to be disclosed to potential buyers. However, if you know someone died in the house and a potential buyer ASKS you about it you MUST be truthful. To sum it up: A Realtor is not required to disclose that someone died in the house unless asked, then they must answer truthfully if they know.

    RE:"I'm sorry, but I would never move into a house knowing someone was brutally murdered there. That's really creepy to me."...sadly, most states don't require any notice of that kind to potential buyers...not sure about N.C.
