    Atlanta native who is looking for love on ABC's hit reality TV show

    The men have ‘told all,’ and now The Bachelorette, Andi Dorfman, is just a week away from handing out the final rose.  Will she choose Nick Viall, a 33-year-old software sales executive from Chicago, or Josh Murray, a 29-year-old former professional baseball player from Dorfman’s hometown of Atlanta?

    Since she’s now thisclose to her happily ever after (fingers crossed), Trulia has made it easier for Andi and Josh/Nick to take their relationship to the next level and move in together!

    Will they rent or will they buy?

    Conventional real estate wisdom says to wait to buy, unless you know you’ll be able to stay put for 5-7 years. With the track records or other Bachelor/Bachelorette alums as precedent, let’s assume they should rent…for now.

    But, if Andi and Josh/Nick decide they do want make a commitment to both themselves and real estate, we have some great for-sale options for them as well!

    Will they settle in Andi’s native Georgia, where Josh lives as well? Or will they head to the Windy City of Chicago and take up residence in Nick’s town?

    Here’s some amazing options in both cities:

    Atlanta

     

    Buy: At the Buckhead Grand, this $320,000 condo is the right combo of grown up and sophisticated, with room to grow. If Andi and her man want to put down roots and have room for what’s ahead, this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo is a great choice.

      Puddle Of Mud Rocker Wes Scantlin Trying To Sell ‘Swamp Pool’ Home For $1.49M

      Price

      $1,499,999

      Puddle of Mud frontman Wes Scantlin is looking to unload his rundown West Hollywood pad at a loss of about $200k. Scantlin purchased the home in 2005 for $1.7 million, right around the height of his career, and has since partied himself out of the three bedroom, four bath, 2,350 square foot home. He’s seeking a buyer to give the place some tender love and care for the small price tag of just $1,499,000.

      There are few pictures to show of Scantlin’s property — and that’s not a good sign. With the pool looking like a puddle of algae, it’s no wonder the home has lost some value since its initial purchase about 10 years ago. However, between having epic on-stage meltdowns and being arrested multiple times, maintaining a million-dollar property may be the last thing on this bad boy rockstar’s mind.

      Nevertheless, the show must go on. According to the listing, the home is ‘in good condition with great bones.’ Renovated in 2009, the contemporary home is in a prime Hollywood location as it sits perched up on the Hollywood Hills right above the Sunset trip. Walls of glass line the living and dining area and offer stunning city and ocean views. The exterior is surrounded by trees and shrubs, giving the pool and patio ultimate privacy.

        After just a few month on the market, Kate Bosworth has just sold her airy and Bohemian-esque Los Angeles home for $2,375,000!

        It’s a little less than what she was hoping to get for it (original asking price was $2,499,000), but the blonde beauty has by no means sold at a loss. The ‘Blue Crush’ actress paid $2,100,000 when she purchased the 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom place in 2005.

        This private pad is set behind a discreet gate that leads you down a long drive to this contemporary home on over half an acre.

        Inside and out, the home has incredible space for entertaining and casual living – and it’s decorated just as you’d expect from the fashionista actress, who has perfected the ‘minimalist chic’ look.

        The floor plan is open and flowing, with the dining and living areas seamlessly connected. In the heart of the home, a chef’s kitchen features professional appliances and huge windows that overlook the patio and views beyond.

        The home’s 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths include the upstairs master retreat with sitting area, two walk-in closets, spa-like bath with double Carrara marble vanity and a jetted tub.

        French doors leads to multiple outdoor areas, including a lap pool and an outdoor living room with incredible light and canyon views.

                Located in the coveted Malibu area of Point Dume, Carolla’s newly-listed pad sits on one of the largest and flattest lots in Point Dume.

                Just as you’d expect from a Malibu home, Carolla’s place has expansive ocean views with incredible, lush landscaping. The house itself is ho-hum by Hollywood standards, but it seems to suit the understated Carolla just fine.

                A bit of a property mogul, Carolla owns two additional LA-area homes. One in the Lake Hollywood area has its own in-house dive bar! He paid $1.63 million for it in 2003, and recently rented out it out for $13,500 a month. He also owns another spread in La Canada Flintridge, CA, that he bought for $2,965,000 in July 2013.

                    $55,000,000

                    Talk show host Ellen Degeneres‘ side gig as a house flipper is proving to be a seriously lucrative endeavor. 

                    Reports have just emerged that Ellen and wife Portia de Rossi have just sold the Brody House, also known as “The Best House in LA” to tech savant Sean Parker. Parker was famously portrayed by Justin Timberlake in the Oscar-nominated “The Social Network.”

                    According to TMZ, Ellen just sold the house to Parker for $55 million. That’s $15 million more than the $40 million she paid for it less than a year ago. TMZ’s sources tell them that “Parker approached Ellen and Portia late last month with the offer … he went nuts over the famous house and Ellen’s interior design.  We’re told even though she never intended to flip the house, she couldn’t refuse a good deal.  The escrow was all of 8 days.  It closed last Thursday.”

                    Parker’s swank new home is 13,511 square feet, with 6 bedrooms, 9.5 bathrooms, a pool, gym and more, all on 2.3 acres in prime Beverly Hills

                    The change of ownership isn’t yet reflected in property records, so until then, this is just a mansion-sized rumor. We wouldn’t put it past Ellen and Portia, though. In 2012, they bought Brad Pitt’s Malibu bachelor pad, and then flipped it back on the market seven months later. When the home sold shortly thereafter, they made $1,000,000 profit. 

                    It’s reported that Ellen and Portia have moved on to two adjacent, high-priced condos in Beverly West. They still own a massive estate in Santa Barbara. With their past in real estate, no doubt they’ll be on to their next project before you know it.

                      This is where the prince of pop plays!

                      Justin Bieber has settled into two swank Beverly Hills condos after selling his Calabasas mansion to Khloe Kardashian and temporarily relocating to a rental in Atlanta.

                      Now back on the West Coast and without a massive mansion to call home, 20-year-old Bieber has taken up residence in two condos in a brand new Beverly Hills condo building. Bieber is currently renting both the penthouse unit and a smaller condo directly underneath it, although the two units do not connect. According to TMZ, he needed the second unit for not only for more space for himself, but also his entourage.

                      The Canadian crooner, who has been on a bit of an attempted (but failed) “image reboot” as of late, hasn’t won over any of his new neighbors, who have already complained of excessive noise, late-night partying and marijuana smells that seep into the shared hallways.

                      After less than a month, Justin’s new neighbors are fed up. TMZ is also reporting that the condo has hired private security from the hours of 6pm and 8am, all to keep Bieber and his entourage in check and keep the peace around the building. Since Bieber’s just renting, the HOA is sending the bill for the security guards directly to the condo’s owners. Ouch.

                      Bieber’s paying $16,000 a month for the penthouse unit and $11,000 a month for the 4th floor unit, for a grand total of $27,000 a month.

                      Brand new and never lived in, the penthouse unit has a private rooftop deck and jacuzzi, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and top-of-the-line details throughout. The smaller unit has an additional 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.

                      If he keeps up his bad boy ways, no doubt Bieber will be on the move again soon.
