All-Time High Rating of Jackson's Tomb

    No sooner was Michael Jackson buried than his forever resting place gained dubious popularity.

   The celebrity's body is already causing a market shift in the cemetery world -- the price of graves near his tomb are already sky-rocketing.

   On June 25, 2009, Jackson collapsed at his rented mansion at 100 North Carolwood Drive in the Holmby Hills district of Los Angeles.

    The memorial was held on July 7, 2009, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, preceded by a private family service at Forest Lawn Memorial Park's Hall of Liberty. Jackson's casket was present during the memorial but no information was released about the final disposition of the body.

   While some unofficial reports claimed a worldwide audience as high as one billion people the U.S. audience was estimated by Nielson to be 31.1 million, an amount comparable to the estimated 35.1 million that watched the 2004 burial of President Ronald Reagan, and the estimated 33.1 million Americans who watched the 1997 funeral for Princess Diana.

Plots surrounding Jackson have already gone up $2,000-$3,000 each since MJ joined the neighborhood.

   Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale was selling pre-Jacko units in the mausoleum for $7,000 a pop -- now they're up to $9,900.

  A sales rep at the cemetery  explaines: "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, according to TMZ.com report.
