Your Mama Hears...

...From our increasingly talkative tipster Nelly Knowsitall that even though JenniFleck (or whatever it is that all the gossip glossies call Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner) are having a tough time selecting a decadent new house to buy, they have very quietly put their current crib in Brentwood on the market for just over eight million clammers.

Little Miss Knowsitall whispered to Your Mama that the unable to pull the real estate trigger couple have backed out of at least four (and maybe five) high priced purchases. None the less, rumor in the real estate street says a lack of a new address hasn't stopped the undecided duo from allowing some of Los Angeles' better connected property purveyors to book appointments show their home on N. Tigertail Road.

Just some rumor and gossip to yik-yak about during your morning koffee-klatch.

I had hoped that Mama would report that Leona Helmsley's little Maltese, who has beaucoup bucks, was putting in a low-ball offer on the Garfleck pile. Dogs seem to love sniffing out baby waste and this place would be perfect.

NO only little people live in houses under 10 million. The dog can stay in greenwich because even with a 30 million price reduction this will be longer on the market then Fennie Mae is in uncle Sam hands.

Good luck to them. All bets are off on finding a quick buyer with the economy falling apart even for the verrry rich who aren't nearly as wealthy today as they were a mere week ago. McCain's new surname: McToast.

Now only if the rich would finally bow down to pressure and price their homes accordingly in Bel Air, Beverly Park, Beverly Hills and Sunset Plaza

You can't suppose that these gods of the silver screen might be wanting for cash, can you? Nope, imposible.

anon 8:26..........You are absolutely right.......I will have to rethink this......maybe find a poorer celebrity dog. Perhaps Ed McMahon has a dog.. no...that wouldn't work either.

They should look at 401 S. Hudson in Hancock Park.....17.5 million

401 S. Hudson

zillow says it is worth 3.2 MM

and they are listing it for 17.5 MM ?

that is a 600% markup

is that a little bold for this market ?

zillow is wrong 100% of the time.

If zillow is wrong 100% of the time then I can sell my estate in hancock park that I bought for 3MM in 2000 for 20MM

I will pay 1MM to anyone that can get me 20 MM for it within 2 months

my home is 13000 sqft and it is on an acre of land

if you cannot get me 20 MM for it then you owe me 100k

anyone willing to take that bet ?

Anonymous said...
