A 1 ½-bath, two-bedroom home in Los Feliz, California, just came on the market for $1.98 million--but with this house there's a catch. This is where the Charles Manson cultists murdered Leno and Rosemary LaBianca on August 10, 1969, a day after actress Sharon Tate and four other were murdered by the same group in one of America's most notorious murder sprees. So how does a real estate agent try to sell a place with this kind of historical infamy? Redfin listing agent Robert Giambalvo says, “It’s just such a calm, peaceful, serene environment that I don’t think anybody cares about what happened a long time ago.” Although not legally required to inform buyer's of the home's dark past, Giambalvo says he is being up front about this being the LaBianca house. “We don’t want somebody to go into escrow and find out 10 days, 15 days later that there was the event that happened 50 years ago," he explains. "And then they don’t want to buy it because of that. We just wanted people to make offers with their eyes wide open.”
