How Banksy boosted this Bristol house price from £300,000 to £5m. Homes with blue plaques and star appeal can come with a premium…
Quoting James Greenwood of Stacks Property Finders
The Banksy effect is just one example of an extraneous factor influencing a property’s price or saleability.
Being previously owned by a celebrity is another. James Greenwood, a property search agent with Stacks, doubts that having a famous owner adds much to the actual value of a property, but it is beneficial in other ways.
‘It’s a good hook to capture interest and garner publicity,’ he says. ‘That whiff of excitement around the owner increases the kerb appeal and gets potential buyers through the door.’
If Greenwood is right, then buyers will soon be queuing up around Oldbury Place, Marylebone, London, because the award-winning singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding has her home on the market.

When making probably the most important financial decision of your life, it pays to have the right advisors at your side.
A holiday home is often an interesting mix of investment and heartfelt connection. You want to use it, but you may well also be keen for others to use it too. We can advise you on what factors to consider in making your decision. And we can then find the perfect holiday home for you to enjoy.
Others say, ‘location, location, location’. We say, ‘location, purpose, price, capital growth, rental returns’… the list goes on. Knowing the market is critical. Local knowledge is key. We ensure all aspects of your investment decision are addressed. Finding, analysing, negotiating, and completing… it’s what we do.
Relocating is time consuming and stressful. We regularly work with clients who live abroad. We hunt, short-list, prepare your viewings, and make the search process as easy as possible. We oversee the negotiations, manage the conveyancing, and deal with the headaches, so you can concentrate on other aspects of your move.
Retirement or semi-retirement is an exciting stage in life. Finding the right home to live in and enjoy it to the full is important. We know that and will do all that we can to understand what you’re looking for… before starting to search. And search we will, until we find the house of your dreams.
