Have you accrued massive amounts of wealth through a lucrative venture and are looking to invest in something to flaunt your prosperity? Good news: Michael Jordan is putting his Chicago mansion up for sale.
The legend tried to sell his 56,000 square foot home last year, but had a hard time selling the compound for $29 million. He lowered it to a less expensive but still crazy price of $21 million this year. The reason Jordan is selling it isn't just for profit, though; he says he simply doesn't need it anymore. "My kids are grown now and I don't need a large house in Chicago," he wrote in an email according to Wall Street Journal.
The mansion's features include:
- A regulation-sized basketball court with locker rooms and a shower right next to it.
- Nine bedrooms and 19 bathrooms, which means you'd may have to spend a little more on bedroom furniture and toilet paper. That probably shouldn't be an issue if you have millions to spend; there should be no excuse for running out of 2-ply.
- A gate that says "23." So when someone questions if this is really Michael Jordan's mansion, you can be all like, "Peep the fence."
Just be prepared with $250,000, which is the down payment required when the mansion goes up for auction on Nov. 22.
