Washington, Jan 9 (ANI): Hollywood star Johnny Depp has helped create a property-buying boom in a Los Angeles apartment block after purchasing a flat there.

It is said that the actor, who lives in France with his partner Vanessa Paradis and their two children, has bought a 2 million dollars penthouse in the historic 13-storey Art Deco block to use on work-related trips to California.

Once his fans, who were eager to be near the actor, came to know about his purchase, they bought up the remaining properties which were selling at 600,000 dollars upwards.

This comes as a load of luck for the apartment owners, as they had not been able to sell the units before the stars intervention. (ANI)
