Doing this doubled the value of the home!
A British mother of five woke up to find that the value of her home had doubled overnight because street artist Banksy had sprayed a mural on her wall. 48-year-old Karen Smith heard voices outside of her home in the early morning and thought nothing of it until she saw men loading huge screens into a van. She watched them speed off and then found a painting of three 1950's spies. Experts believe the piece is genuine Banksy, whose pieces have sold for over $800,000. The house, which is valued at over $500,000, will not benefit Smith because she only leases the house.
