Ozzy Osbourne Re-Lists Malibu Home, Again and Again

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...


Who was it that said that the definition of insanity is to repeat the same action and expect a different outcome?

Back in March, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne -- the King and Queen of Heavy Metal whose music most recently helped rescue a lost autistic child -- listed their Malibu beach house for the umpteenth time, that time at $10 million, to be lowered three months later to $9.5 million. Somewhere along the line (we slept through exactly when) they either pulled it from the market or the last listing expired. The result was the same: It didn't sell at $9.5 million.

Is my calculator broken or is that just a $50,000 price reduction on a $9.5 million listing? A measly 0.5 percent? A drop in the proverbial beach-sand bucket? Enough to cover a party at the Osbournes, back in the day?

The Osbournes have had this home on and off the market for eons. Sometimes they rent it out for the summer -- asking $40,000 a month -- or year-round. But if it's a serious sale they are chasing, they seem to be losing the race to dropping prices.

So now we have it, again: The same 4,500 square feet, same five bedrooms, same walled Italian garden entry, same gourmet kitchen and same proximity to the La Costa Beach Club.

Same listing agent too: Jonah Wilson of Sotheby's International Realty.

They bought the home in 2003, paying $5.1 million. Their principal residence in the suburban Los Angeles gated community of Hidden Hills is also listed for sale at $12.9 million.
