EXCLUSIVERodney King's family just proved ... death is not a buzzkill in the real estate market ... 'cause they sold the house Rodney died in for a fat profit.
As you may recall ... King was found dead in the home's backyard pool last year in Rialto, California -- and now ... just a year later, his fam unloaded the house for over $100k more than he paid.
Our real estate sources say the realtor who sold the house did what the law requires ... disclose the death, but it had no negative impact on the sale.
Rodney bought the 2,084 square foot home in '01 for $156k ... and it was sold last month for $260k.
It has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and well ... a swimming pool.
Hopefully they used a lot of chlorine.
