Julie Gillards house sold at auction today - it was marketed as around $600-650k. Agents have been saying the 'celebrity status' would probably push it up by $100k. The house is updated but nothing special, is opposite a high school and not in the 'nicer' part of the area either. Someone just paid $921k!!!
So, would you pay in excess of what a property was worth just because of who owned it previously? I mean she wasn't exactly a loved PM either!

Not for real estate. No way in hell. Not even if it was a super famous person! Memories and celebrity status fade.

Nope, I wouldn't- and I like Gillard!
By the same token, should we expect a bargain if the house was the scene if an awful crime?
