LeBron James’ Miami home was a little nicer than yours (or mine). It was right on the water in the Coconut Grove area, with six bedrooms and eight-and-a-half bathrooms, a game room, a theater, a wine cellar, a pool, and it came with stunning views.
Of course, what with his return to Cleveland and all, he didn’t have much use for it, so he put it on the market.
Turns out, it also was a tad more expensive than your place — LeBron sold it recently for a cool $13.4 million, reports Darren Rovell at ESPN.
James originally put the 12,178 square foot home in Miami’s Coconut Grove neighborhood on the market for $17 million in October. The price was dropped to $15 million in March and was eventually sold for $1.6 million less.
LeBron still turned a $4.4 million profit, based on what he paid for it when he took his talents to South Beach. Which is good, I was really worried about LeBron’s financial standing and lifestyle.
Considering the lower cost of housing, can you imagine what $13.4 million buys you in Akron?
