    $1,900,000

    Oh No, Dawg!  Former ‘American Idol’ judge, Randy Jackson, just lost a chunk of change on the sale of his Tarzana, CA home.

    Purchased by the Grammy-winning super-producer in May 2005 for $2,725,000, Jackson just sold the 5 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 5,878 square foot place for $1,900,000. That’s $825,000 less than what Jackson paid when he bought it. Ouch.

    He listed the gated estate for $2.199 million in June 2014, price chopped it to $1.99M, and then quickly found a buyer…but not one willing to pay full asking on the gated estate in the El Caballero area of Tarzana.

    The buyer got a bargain basement price on a large custom-built estate with a newer gourmet kitchen with high-end amenities, including granite countertops, stainless steel Viking appliances, a SubZero fridge/freezer.

    In the master suite, Jackson’s house had his/her bathrooms, with direct access to the spa. All five bedroom are over-sized, with their own en-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets.

    The exterior features a sparkling swimming pool and manicured, lush green lawn. Beyond the pool, the property also featured a stand-alone guest house with full kitchen and central air and heat.

    Kenneth Margolis of Soetheby’s International Realty was Jackson’s agent and Alan Parness of Rodeo Realty represented the buyer.

        $3,495,000

        Selena Gomez is selling her Tarzana, CA ‘starter home,’ asking $3,495,000 for the stunning 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 6,630 square foot compound.

        The Disney star, turned rehab-attending Justin Bieber ex-girlfriend has had a rocky year, filled with salacious tabloid headlines. With all of that (hopefully) behind her, Gomez is making changes on the home front. First, she fired her parents as her management team.

        Second, she bought some brand new digs.

        In March 2014, she paid $3.69 million for a gated mansion in Calabasas – the very same LA suburb where ex-bf Justin Bieber terrorized his neighbors before subsequently selling his sprawling pad to none other than Khloe Kardashian.

        Now that she’s nestled into a Bieber-free Calabasas spread, she’s selling the home she’s lived in since July 2011, when she paid $2,175,000 for the pad. In the time she’s owned it, the multi-winged house has gotten some upgrades, additions and remodels…thus the much-higher asking price.

        Now, Selena’s new-to-the-market home is a gorgeous and luxurious ‘compound’ on an entire acre. A lavish upstairs guest suite has its own separate entrance, a full kitchen, two bathrooms, two walk-in closets, and is encircled by a balcony that overlooks the entire grounds.

        The newly built downstairs media room has a bar that opens to the outdoor BBQ and firepit lounge area – perfect for parties!

        Outside, there’s a pool, spa, shaded outdoor pergola, Bocce Ball court, fruit tree orchard, full basketball court with lights, plus additional room for a full tennis court.

          Price

          Khloe Kardashian is getting her fresh start, thanks to ‘Big Bang Theory’ star Kaley Cuoco, who reportedly just paid full price for the Tarzana, CA home that Khloe once shared with soon-to-be-ex-husband Lamar Odom.

          Listed for $5,499,000, Khloe and Lamar’s former home is a guard-gated Mulholland Park custom-built home located at the end of a private enclave cul-de-sac. Huge grassy lawns and a dramatic entry courtyard make a great first impression as you pull up to the home. Inside, a dramatic entryway leads to luxe living spaces that include 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, stone floors, a theater.

          Outside, Khloe and Lamar’s former home has an outdoor kitchen with 2 refrigerators, a bbq bit, covered cabanas and a pool and spa.

          Khloe and Lamar nested here in happier times, before Lamar’s alleged drug use forced Khloe to file for divorce in December, citing “irreconcilable differences.”

          Kaley Cuoco and her new husband Ryan Sweeting are ignoring the bad juju inside the manse and are hoping to turn the gorgeous home back into in a love nest. The duo married this past New Years Eve, after just a few months of dating.

          Kaley also owns a 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 5,233 square foot estate in Sherman Oaks, California that she purchased on November 19, 2010 for $2,400,000.

            After a year of turmoil and scandal that resulted in divorce, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are officially selling their sprawling Tarzana home.

            According to the Los Angeles Times and  The Real Estalker, the home is now officially listed for sale for $5,499,000.

            In the months before the home went up for sale, news reports revealed that Lamar has been battling drug addiction and Khloe was trying to save him – and their four-year marriage. When all their efforts to rectify their marriage failed, Khloe filed for divorce in December, citing “irreconcilable differences.”

            Now, it’s time to split the marital assets – including this incredible mansion, which was purchased in both of their names before being transferred into a shared trust. Khloe and Lamar paid $3,950,000 for the spread in December 2009 –  shortly after they married in a quickie wedding ceremony after just a month of dating.

            If you have the cash money to buy the house where Khloe and Lamar spent happier days, you’ll be buying a guard-gated Mulholland Park custom-built home located at the end of a private enclave cul-de-sac. Huge grassy lawns and a dramatic entry courtyard make a great first impression as you pull up to the home. Inside, a dramatic entryway leads to luxe living spaces that include 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, stone floors, a theater.

            Outside, Khloe and Lamar’s Tarzana home has an outdoor kitchen with 2 refrigerators, a bbq bit, covered cabanas and a pool and spa.

            If the home looks familiar, it’s because they’ve filmed “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and their spin-off “Khloe & Lamar” all over the property.

            Tomer and Isadora Fridman of Ewing Sotheby’s International Realty hold the listing.

              After a year of turmoil and scandal, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are reportedly selling their sprawling Tarzana home.

              According to TMZ, the home has secretly been listed for sale for $3,995,000. Interested? Well, the home isn’t open to just anyone – it’s only being shown to qualified buyers who can show that they can actually afford to pay the asking price.

              Khloe and Lamar moved into the home shortly after marrying in a quickie wedding ceremony in 2009. They’ve filmed “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and their spin-off “Khloe & Lamar” in the home. In light of recent news reports that Lamar has been battling drug addiction and that Khloe intends to eventually divorce him, it makes sense that the home is up for sale. With less combined assets, the easier it will be for the duo to split. While we’re rooting for Lamar to turn his life around and for the seemingly in-love duo to make it work, selling the family home is usually a strong indicator that things are trending towards divorce.

              If you have the cash money to buy the house, you’ll be buying a guard-gated Mulholland Park custom built 7-bedroom home located at the end of a private enclave cul-de-sac. Huge grassy lawns and a dramatic entry courtyard make a great first impression as you pull up to the home. Inside, a dramatic entryway leads to luxe living spaces, 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, stone floors, a theater.

                Price

                $1,650,000

                Philadelphia Eagles’ DeSean Jackson has a lot to be proud of. Not only can he say he’s a star player for the NFL, who just recently signed a new 5-year, $51-million contract, but now he can also cross that finish line of becoming a first-time homeowner! After several years of renting in Los Angeles, Jackson has moved on up and purchased a 3,837-square-foot home in Tarzana, CA for $1.65 million.

                Being the showman and big spender that he is, this modest purchase does comes as a surprise to some as the multi-million dollar wide receiver shelled out less than $2 million. However, the property exudes charm and personality and is close to his hometown Long Beach, CA. With prime LA location and some pizzazz to fill the appetite of a pro-athlete, the home seems like a perfect off-season retreat for some much needed R&R.

                Located in prime South Tarzana, CA, the four-bedroom, six-bath property is a traditional, gated, family home offering luxury and comfort at every turn. The all-white property features beautiful french doors, hardwood floors, crown molding and open living spaces. The living room welcomes you with a beamed ceiling and exquisite glass tile fireplace and leads you to a large family room and elegant dining area with chandelier and backyard access. An upgraded chef’s kitchen is the focal point of the home and includes stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, a breakfast island and a cute windowsill seating area.

                The exterior of the home includes a pool and grassy area, along with a one-bedroom, one-bath detached studio suite with French doors and gaudy black and white checkered flooring.

                  $8,000 a month

                  Back in August of 2011, we let you in on the news that former Screen Actors Guild president and “Little House on the Prairie” star Melissa Gilbert and her soon-to-be ex-husband Bruce Boxleitner were selling their Tarzana house in the wake of their divorce filing.

                  Since then, the $1,195,000 cul-de-sac estate has sat quite lonely on the unsold real estate prairie. Facing their own real estate reality, the former pair have now decided to go the rental route, placing the home up for lease at $8,000 a month.

                  The gated home, built in 1955, is modest by celebrity standards and the decor definitely lends to its lived-in look. With 4,609 square-feet of living space, the private ranch includes 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 1 partial bath, a gourmet kitchen, vaulted ceilings, formal dining room, and living room with fireplace.

                  A large pool, and an equally large stretch of green grass separate the main home from detached guest quarters. The studio-sized space comes complete with bedroom, full bath and kitchenette.
