Aretha Franklin's former home is for sale -- and you can it buy for under $1 million

Aretha Franklin's Detroit home is on the market, again. 

The Queen of Soul's 'Rose Estate' is a 5,623-square-foot mansion that was built in the 1920s. Its nickname is directly related to the rose imagery throughout the estate and because Franklin recorded her album A Rose Is Still a Rose while she lived there.  

Take a look at the house in the slideshow below.
