    Kanye West and reality star girlfriend Kim Kardashian may be looking to name their unborn child “North,” however, West’s buyer of his $3.3 million dollar Hollywood Hills home has gone south. A Hollywood insider has whispered to us that Kanye’s unique, 4,124 square-foot estate, that was relisted just last month, has quickly gone in and out of escrow in a matter of weeks. Will Kanye have to ramble up his real estate “clique” and relist yet again or will he put it aside for now and just focus on his new $13 million, 9,000 square-foot property?

    Located in the coveted Hollywood Hills, the three bedroom, four-bath home is a dream for a fan of modern architecture, especially if you have an art collection that you would like to display. In fact, the home looks a lot like a gallery and is a fabulous place to entertain, whether you are drinking Corvoisier and going to the Grammy’s or not. He first purchased the three-story modern property in December of 2003 for $1,750,000.

      Nowadays you can find daddy-to-be Kanye West either starting a beef someone in Hollywood such as Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake or busy spending millions remodeling his new $13 million, 9,000 square-foot estate with girlfriend and baby mama Kim Kardashian. That being said, he obviously has no time to dedicate towards the small stuff such as his teeny 4,124 square-foot Hollywood Hills home – ain’t nobody got time for that!

      Moving on to bigger and better things, Mr. West has relisted his estate for $3.3 million – a nearly $700,000 price cut from when he initially put it on the market in 2010. He first purchased the three-story modern property in December of 2003 for $1,750,000.

        5 bedrooms, 6 bath, 5,152 square feet

        Price

        $10,995,000

        Everybody Loves Raymond star Brad Garrett has outgrown his Malibu beachfront estate and has relisted the property for $10,995,000. The deep-voiced, 6-foot-8 actor/comedian purchased the Spanish villa in 2007 for $8.81 million and originally put the home on the market in the summer of 2011 for $13.95 million. Unable to find a buyer, Garrett is now relisting the property two years later with a $3 million price chop. The house is stunning and should have no problem attracting attention with the recent price reduction. Perhaps a Garrett-voiced-over virtual tour of the home could reel in a buyer? Wouldn’t be a bad idea.

        Located on the bluffs of Malibu, the five-bedroom, six-bath home is approximately 5,152 square feet and sits on a one-acre lot. Designed by local architect Douglas W. Buredge, the standout property features breathtaking ocean views and lovely custom details and molding inside and out. The home also boasts vaulted, beamed ceilings, wooden floors, a fireplace and custom mosaic tiling throughout. The gourmet chef’s kitchen comes with stainless steel appliances, a beautifully tiled center island, and wooden cabinetry. Additional posh amenities include a spacious home theater, two beachfront balconies, a heated pool, and a large living room with elongated sliding glass doors leading to the backyard and patio.

          The king of game show hosts Howie Mandel is looking to unload one of his biggest prizes yet: a beautiful 5,936-square-foot, ocean-view Malibu estate. However, Mandel isn’t giving it away on one of his four game show gigs. Instead, he’s looking for a lucky buyer as he’s relisted it on the open market for a cool $7,750,000.

          Back in December 2011, the former “Deal or No Deal” host had originally put the home up for sale and was looking to lock in a deal of his own for $7,250,000. Since taking down the original listing, Mandel is now taking a gamble in hopes of winning big by relisting the property for $500k more.

          Located in the prestigious Point Dume area, this Cape Cod-inspired mini-compound was exquisitely crafted by renowned architect Douglas Burdge. Unveiled in 2009, the home boasts five bedrooms, five and a half baths, an office, theater, gym, and guesthouse. Constructed with the finest of finishes, the timeless architectural style weds both elegant sophistication and casual seaside living with a seamless indoor/outdoor flow. The airy main living area includes double-height formal living and dining rooms–both with French doors lining the walls–leading to a large, open kitchen with center island.

          With panoramic Santa Monica ocean views, the home sits on over an acre of flat land with expansive lawns, a huge outdoor patio, and a gorgeous infinity pool.

            $10,500,000

            NFL great Jerry Rice has recently re-listed his massive 14,000 square-foot Atherton, CA home for a reduced price of $10.5 million. According to property records, Rice first purchased the land in 2001 for just $2.1 million. After building on the property, he listed it for sale in 2007 for $22 million, then once again in July of this year for $13.88 million. After a few million in price cuts, this state-of-the-art mansion is tackling the real estate market yet again, seeking a new owner – preferably a tech savvy candidate that would take advantage of all its bells and whistles.

            Located in California’s Bay Area, this estate is a tech mogul’s dream come true. Made for a champion, the seven-bedroom, eight full, and three partial bath estate comes with a built-in elevator to access its three-levels, a seven-car-garage, and $2 million dollars worth of installed electronics, including a cutting edge security system and exquisite home theater. Sitting in one of the priciest zip codes in Silicon Valley, this estate is a tech hub within a tech hub. Fully equipped with automated smartphone capabilities, residents have the capability to remotely control various appliances and security via mobile, from anywhere in the world. After tearing down the original home in 2001, and building this “smart home” masterpiece, it seems Rice was looking to add tremendous property value. It’s no doubt he clearly went all….the….way.

            Versace limestone floors, an aquarium, gym, sauna, and Swarovski crystal accents glam up the property, offering stunning elegance throughout. To appeal to the inner chef in us all, the over-the-top gourmet kitchen includes the latest stainless appliances, a deep fryer, steamer, and pizza oven. The spectacular exterior grounds offer a large entertainment area with a massive pool, Jacuzzi tub,  outdoor built-in barbecue, gazebo with built-in heat lamps, and large grass area.

              Price

              $3,600,000

              Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has recently closed on a $3.6 million dollar waterfront Bay Area property located in Richmond, California, sources say. Lynch, a Bay Area native, attended high school in Oakland, CA and college at Cal Berkeley where he was an essential asset to the Cal Bears football program. While at Cal Berkeley Lynch set the school’s record for most 100-yard rushing games and was a strong candidate in the running for the famous Heisman Trophy.

              According to sources, the 7,000 square-foot-home includes five bedrooms and five and a half baths with extraordinary panoramic views of the beautiful San Francisco Bay. With a custom built 58-foot boat dock, Lynch can “ghost ride” his boat to and from Richmond and San Francisco and go “beast mode” with his water toys on the Bay Area waters, a.k.a., his new backyard. The property is contemporary in style and offers additional luxe amenities including a wine cellar, theater room and elevator.

              Lynch not only scored big with his recent real estate purchase, but earlier this year landed another huge contract deal with the Seattle Seahawks, extending his contract until 2016 and earning him a total of up to $31 million. Number 24 is making big moves on and off the field.
