Mr. Dolci is right. The fact (alone) that a property was used for an illegal purpose has no bearing on its value. And "was used a grow house" is not criteria that Trulia's database uses when selecting comparables. Furthermore, there is no requirement to disclose, to any prospective buyers, that a property was used for criminal purposes. If disclosure of homicide in a dwelling is not required to be disclosed, I doubt the "grow" house issue needs to be.

On the other hand, if there's water damage, strong stench of burned plant material.....

It is not a querstion of q=what the homw was used for in tyhe first palce. It depends on the market nd how much repair iit needs or if it is going to be or alredy is fixed up in original or better condition. Your opinion on what it ws used for has no bearing on the price.
