What do you do if you're selling your house and then Banksy tags it? How much does the artwork play into the price? The mural depicts a small woman sneezing with dentures flying out of her mouth.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. What do you do if you're selling your house and Banksy tags it? That's what happened to one family in Bristol, England. The mysterious artist spray-painted a new piece on the wall of the house. The family put the sale on hold for a few days, but confirmed they're now going to move ahead. So for the new owners, a new home and a pretty valuable piece of art thrown in for good measure. The mural depicts a small person sneezing with fake teeth flying out of her mouth. It's MORNING EDITION.
