Michael Jackson Is Good For Cemetary Economy

Michael Jackson is heating up the real estate market at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale. TMZ reports that plots at near Michael Jackson’s tomb have increased in price by $2,000-$3,000. From TMZ.com:

The cemetery rep tells us, “When a high-profile person comes in, it can affect the prices of the surrounding plots.”

Some people who own private units near MJ’s crypt are looking for a bigger payday — one person is asking $34,000 for a double unit inside Jackson’s mausoleum.

We spoke with owner of the double unit who told us, “We’ve had a tremendous response … we’re weighing all of our options.”

Still cheaper than being buried above Marilyn Monroe.
