Celebrity Real Estate Rental News

celebrity real estateMost people think celebs own uber-expensive places in the best neighborhoods, and of course they do, but sometimes they rent. And sometimes their places are available for us mere mortals (with a lot of extra spending cash) to rent.

So, not only do you have the opportunity to rent a great place, you get to say that so-and-so-slept here. And at these prices, a really good story better come with the place.
  • If you are a fan of the beach at your footsteps and privacy, and you have a scant $50,000 to spend on a rental, you can take a former Oscar winners house. Charlize Theron's Malibu beachfront home (pictured) is available according to TMZ.com. The three bedroom home has over two thousand square-feet and no, Charlize does not come with the place. (But it looks like a kayak does!)
  • I'm sure you have wondered how to renovate a home like a celeb - even a rental - and in GOOP you could got some tips on how Gwyneth does it. Interior Designer Annette Joseph transformed a raw (read: dump) loft space in Nashville into a home fit for an Oscar winning, globe trotting, I call Spielberg Uncle Morty, actor, wife and mother. And yes, there were some cheap finds!
  • The Bronx is about to get some some full-on New Jersey representation. Snooki is talking about moving out of her mom's place and into the Bronx. According to the New York Post's Page Six, Ms. Jersey Shore wants to move once the second season of her reality show wraps up. Why that burough? "I want to move to The Bronx, because there's loads of Guidos there, and I might meet a nice one out walking the dog or something," says the overly tanned and overexposed starlet.
  • Lots of people who list homes will sometimes accept renters in lieu of an immediate sale, so maybe you'd like to rent a former James Bond's property? Although he will always be Remington Steele to us 80's TV-fanatics, Pierce Brosnan's $3.9 million dollar gated Mediterranean Malibu beach house is for rent, according to the L.A. Times. There's no sign of shark tanks in the basement or a state-of-the-art spy gadget room. Of course if you don't want to rent, you could just buy it?
