8 celebrity homes that no one wants to buy
- A celebrity owner isn't necessarily enough to sell a home.
- Some celebrity-owned homes have sat on the market for years.
- Michael Jordan, for example, has been trying to sell his Highland Park, Illinois mansion since 2012.
While an association with a celebrity seems like it would help a home sell more quickly, that doesn't seem to always be the case.
According to Redfin, homes owned by celebrities tend to spend 36 more days on the market than other homes, and they typically sell for less than what the seller had originally asked for.It could be that these homes have price tags that only a celebrity-sized paycheck could cover - or, it could just be that the draw of a star power is not as strong as it would appear.
Either way, we've rounded up eight celebrity-owned homes that have languished on the market - some of them for several years at several different price points.
