    Celebrity Real Estate Losers

    The housing market is tricky. It’s up, it’s down, it’s up again…and then it’s back down. We’re seeing a nice recovery in the overall market right now, but that doesn’t mean everyone is making money on their homes – even celebrities.

    Let’s take a look at 9 big-name celebrities that lost some serious cash money when they sold their luxury real estate in the last year.

     

     Katy Perry

    This “California Gurl”  bought this Spanish-style home in Hollywood in 2011 for $6.5 million. She intended to use the spread as her marital home with then-husband. Russell Brand. Before the moving trucks could even get in the front gate, the duo had split. Perry then had to face a financial heartbreak when she had to sell the home for $5.65. After fees and closing costs, she lost more than a million dollars on the home.

Reese originally had the place listed it for $10 million, and price chopped it multiple times, until it sold for almost a million less than the $5.8 million she paid for it.

    The NBA legend has been trying to sell his Chicago-area mansion for years. It originally had a $29 million dollar price tag until he cut $8 million off the price – bringing it to $21 million. After failing to sell it at the reduced price, Jordan put the home up for auction – where it AGAIN failed to sell. It’s now back on the market and still looking for a buyer.

    After two years on the market, Christina Aguilera FINALLY sold the home she bought from the Osbournes. She paid $11.5 million to buy the Beverly Hills mansion from Ozzy and Sharon, and that’s exactly what she sold it for – $11.5M, although she’d been hoping for $13.5M. After remodeling, closing and carrying costs, ‘The Voice’ judge likely lost a nice chunk of change.

      Sometimes 2 isn’t better than 1. After more than 2 full years on the market, Christina Aguilera has finally sold the Beverly Hills mansion she purchased from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. Originally listed for $13.5 million, Aguliera never officially reduced the asking price on the home, but according to property records, she eventually ended up selling for $11.5 million – a full $2 million less than the diva wanted for her palace. The deal closed on April 29, 2013, and the buyer’s identity is still unknown.

      Aguilera has since moved on to another Beverly Hills mansion in the exclusive guard-gated Mulholland Estates community. Her new 11,000-square-foot estate was reportedly purchased from multi-billionaire and global private equity mogul Tom Gores for an even $10 million.

      Her just-sold home was the stage for Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s reality show “The Osbournes” many years ago and is in the heart of Beverly Hills on Doheny Drive. The estate is gated and extremely private and has 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms spread out over 10,000 square feet.

       

        Make Your Rent Check Payable to ‘The Prince Of Darkness’ – Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne Leasing Out Hidden Hills Home

        Rock Legend and wife turned famous reality TV family

        Home Stats

        10,953 square feet, 6 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms

        Price

        Rent for $50k a month or buy for $12,999,000

        Rock & Roll legend Ozzy Osbourne could be your new landlord! The Prince of Darkness and his firecracker wife Sharon are shifting real estate gears and offering up their stunning Hidden Hills home as a $50,000-a-month lease after trying to unsuccessfully sell the home since July 2011. While it’s still listed for sale at $12,999,000, the home just hit the high-end rental market today. The Osbournes purchased the home in the equestrian community of Hidden Hills on August 3, 2007 for $12,388,500. It clocks in at 10,953 square feet and features 6 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.

        You may not be able to understand a word Ozzy says, but you can probably glean that he and Sharon have a penchant for pricey properties. While they filmed their eponymous MTV reality show, “The Osbournes,” Sharon, Ozzy, Kelly and Jack Osbourne lived in this Beverly Hills mansion – currently owned by none other than songstress Christina Aguilera. Perhaps being “The Price of Darkness” comes with a real estate curse, because Aguilera can’t sell this ‘Osbournes’ pad either. It’s been languishing on the market since March 2011 with a $13.5M price tag.

        Should you want to temporarily live like an Osbourne, let’s examine what you’ll get for $50,000 clams a month: Located within the exclusive guard-gated community of Hidden Hills, the Osbourne family home is situated on a private knoll and is a sophisticated Cape Cod-inspired estate located atop an intimate cul-de-sac. Recently featured in “Architectural Digest”, the Osbournes’ grand residence rests on 2.25 acre promontory with breathtaking city light and mountain views. Re-imagined by legendary interior designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, the magnificent home features the 6 bedrooms, as well as a guest apartment with kitchenette, intricately paneled study with fireplace, porte-cochere with motor court, exquisitely accented formal dining room, dramatic foyer with spiral staircase, floor-to-ceiling windows and an expansive lower level studio/home theater space.

        For those of you who tuned in to ‘The Osbournes,” you’ll remember most of the action took place in the kitchen. In this home, it’s no different. A brilliant state-of-the art chef’s kitchen features Wolf appliances, a center-island and cozy breakfast nook.

        The family room is highlighted by oversized sliding barn doors, a reclaimed brick fireplace and  beamed vaulted ceilings. The master suite offers a sitting area, stone fireplace, wood paneled walk-in closet and an adjacent office. Expansive rear grounds include  rolling lawns, a spa, barbeque island, outdoor shower, commode and several seating enclaves.

        We’re not sure where the Osbourne’s will decamp to, as they sold their $7.9M Malibu home in April of this year, but no doubt they’ll move on to another fabulous estate to get some R&R after a particularly challenging year.

          Still Lingering on the Market, Christina Aguilera Releases New Photos of Beverly Hills Estate

          Christina Aguilera

          Beverly Hills, CA

          Most Known For

          Golden pipes, a messy personal life and a comeback on The Voice

          Home Stats

          10,000 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms

          Price

          $13,500,000

          Still lingering on the market, Christina Aguilera has just released new photos of her for-sale Beverly Hills mansion – but she doesn’t budge on the price. The updated photos show a glammed-out Hollywood hideaway with distinct Hollywood touches – a beauty salon, lush movie theater, recording studio in the guesthouse, a waterslide with grotto spa, and more.

          Since purchasing the pricey pad from none other than the Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne and wife Sharon, Christina Aguilera has been caught in the grips of the real estate downturn. After more than a year on the market, there is still no qualified buyer willing to pony up $13,5000,000 for the estate. Back in late 2010, Christina and her soon-to-be-ex husband Jordan Bratman put the home up for sale right as they were heading into their divorce proceedings. At the time, Christina had met a new man friend, and reports around town say that for a time, it was a full house. According to sources, Christina’s brand new boy toy moved in with the chanteuse and her son Max…and her ex-husband. We’d have to assume Bratman took up residence in the guesthouse to avoid the awkwardness. But, with 10,000 square feet, the home is spacious enough to make the strange living arrangements slightly less…strange.

          If you’re interested in investing $13,500,000 into a home with such an incredible Hollywood backstory, what would you get? For starters, the home is gated and extremely private. A grand foyer and sweeping staircase lead up to a beautiful master suite with a fireplace, lounge, and his and her baths and walk-in closets. A fanciful children’s room inspires joy and likely brought much of it to Aguilera’s tyke, Max.

          There is extraordinary volume throughout, with gorgeous moldings and high ceilings. Exquisite lighting adds ambiance and distinction. This magnificent home also includes a gym, game room, gift-wrapping area and a gorgeous and lush movie room.  The fantastic pool comes complete with water slide and grotto spa. A BBQ area and incredible custom pagoda make the backyard ideal for fun and entertaining.

          We’ll be watching to see if Aguilera’s attempt at stepping up her game to sell the home can reel in a buyer. Stay tuned, celeb real estate watchers…

            Christina Aguilera

            Los Angeles, CA

            Most Known For

            Golden pipes, a messy personal life and a comeback on The Voice

            Home Stats

            6,500+ square feet, 4 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms

            Price

            $4,653,815

            Christina Aguilera has had a dizzying year. A divorce, a new relationship, a new career move as a judge on “The Voice,” and now it looks like she also has quite the stack of real estate-related paperwork. Miss Aguilera has not one, but two estates on the market in Los Angeles, and now one has been taken off her well-manicured hands. According to real estate records and some excellent sleuthing by the Real Estalker, we now know that her home was sold yesterday for an interesting sum of $4,653,815.

            Christina’s bachelorette pad, perched high in the hills (with views to boot) is the pad she occupied prior to her ill-fated marriage to music executive Jordan Bratman. They moved on to purchase a love nest and family home that was none other than the former home of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne. Any one with a penchant for reality TV will recognize the home as the one where the Prince of Darkness and his brood filmed the popular MTV show “The Osbournes.” Since the Aguilera/Bratman divorce, that home is on the market for $13,500,000 and still hasn’t found a buyer who wants a home with that much Tinseltown street cred.

            Aguilera’s just-sold home hasn’t been the easiest piece of property to move. It’s been through rounds and rounds of price cuts until Ms. Aguilera found herself selling the 4 bedroom, 7 bathroom home off for almost $350,000 less than the $5,000,000 she paid for it in 2003.

            No telling where she currently lays her bleach blonde head at night, but her former home was definitely easy on the eyes. It’s a “Lautner inspired Mid Century Modern” with jetliner views from downtown to the ocean. Just minutes to Sunset Strip and Beverly Hills, the  6,500+ square foot home offer views from every room. Walls of glass open to large pool and 12 person spa with an outdoor fireplace. Like most of her Hollywood peers, Ms. A’s home has a professional screening room and recording studio. The lavish master suite boasts 2 fireplaces and immense double closet over looking the entire city.
