'Stigmatized' homes can be bargains

From AOL Real Estate

The handsome, Spanish-style home on the corner of Beachcomber Lane and Sea Lark Road in Houston couldn’t look any more idyllic. With its charming brick exteriors, and leafy, tree-flanked lawn, the cozy three-bedroom property is picture perfect.

But behind its pretty doors lies a gruesome past. It’s where 37-year-old mom Andrea Yates drowned her five children — including her 6-month-old daughter — in a bathtub in 2001. Yates was later convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.
