Abraham Reich was quoted in The Philadelphia Inquirer article, “Pa. Supreme Court: Murder-Suicide in a House Needn’t be Disclosed by Seller to Buyer.” Full text can be found in the July 26, 2014, issue, but a synopsis is below.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that a murder-suicide in a home does not create a material defect and does not need to be disclosed by a seller to a buyer.

“The issue at hand is a slippery slope of allowing a psychological stigma to impact the value of a property,” said Abraham Reich.
