Celebrity Real Estate Roundup
Paul Giamatti is the proud new owner of a 1,400 square foot condo in New York's Brooklyn Heights neighborhood. The modestly sized (and, let's face it - modestly priced for a celeb of Giamatti's caliber) $1.3 million property features three bedrooms and two baths, with tons of windows to create an open, airy feeling. Giamatti and wife Elizabeth are apparently fans of small-scale living, with their other home being an 880-square-foot house in California's Venice Beach. (source: realestalker)
"Octomom" Nadya Suleman's real estate saga took another twist this week, with reports that her $565,000 La Habra, California home may soon be facing foreclosure. Celebrity gossip site TMZ broke the news that Suleman recently missed a $450,000 balloon payment due on the four-bedroom, three-bath house, which opens the door to foreclosure proceedings by owner Amer Haddadin.
Purchased only a year ago, the transaction has been the subject of conflicting reports by the media, the various estate agents involved, Suleman, and her parents -- so it's anyone's guess where Octomom and her 14 offspring will end up. (source: The Orange County Register)
Britney Spears is ready to take a loss on her 7,500-square-foot, Italian-Renaissance-inspired home in California's Studio City. The house -- purchased in January 2007 for $6.75 million -- was recently listed for $5.495 million, down from the original September 2008 listing of $7.9 million.
The five-bedroom, six-bath home was purchased in the midst of Spear's divorce from Kevin Federline and her very public breakdown, so it's no surprise that she's ready to move on -- even at a loss. (source: BlockShopper Los Angeles)
