New Chicago Bull Kyle Korver has purchased a house in Glencoe. And, according to the Chicago Tribune, he got himself a deal:
Chicago Bulls guard and forward Kyle Korver has paid $1.38 million for a 16-room mansion in Glencoe that once was listed for $2.95 million.Wow! Less than half the original listing price. And he got a lot for his money:
Built in 2008, Korver’s six-bedroom house has five baths, a spa, a home theater, and a walkout basement. The home first was listed by its builder in October 2008 for $2.95 million and later was reduced to $2.7 million and then, in 2009, to $2.395 million, $2.1 million and $1.75 million. This past June, the home was reduced further to $1.38 million, and sold in a short sale.
Meanwhile, if you're looking for a house in this bracket, ex-Bull Brad Miller's house is still on the market.
Miller, who is now playing for the Houston Rockets, has reduced the asking price for his home in Highland Park:
Brad Miller, the seven-footer who did two tours of duty with the Chicago Bulls, has reduced the asking price on his former home in Highland Park to $1.199 million. He made the 4 percent price cut on September 30th, just 28 days after the home went on the market with an asking price of $1.250 million.
The same agent, Mary Jane Serene of Keller Williams, handled the purchase for Korver and is handling the sale for Miller. If you're interested, or just curious to see the home of a professional athlete, here's the official Multiple Listing Service listing for Miller's house.
