Michael Jordan’s Chicago Estate – Chicago, Illinois

On the Market Since: 2012
Total Area: 56,000 square feet
Initial Value: $29 million*

Michael Jordan originally put his 56,000 square-foot mansion up for sale for $29 million. Located in Highland Park, Illinois, the mansion has since dropped to less than $15 million as Jordan struggled to find a buyer. The seven-acre estate has been on the market since 2012, and now he can’t seem to sell it for anything at all.

The Nike spokesman and former NBA star even tried to sweeten the deal by throwing in a pair of rare, vintage Air Jordans with the house. So, what’s the problem? Chicago Mag says that the asking price is too high, even for such a large property. No one wants to buy a mansion that will depreciate in value.  

As Forbes stated, the market for such a luxury property is far from “limitless.” The fitness perks of the place (such as the basketball court) aren’t really a selling point for someone without the athleticism of Jordan. Also, there was a lot of “culture clash” between the realtors over the high-profile nature of the house, according to The Real Deal.

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn’s Beach Mansion – Malibu, California

On the Market Since: 2011 
Total Area: 4,195 square feet  
Initial Value: $14.8 million*

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are one of the few Hollywood couples that have been together for ages and show no signs of breaking up. The pair, in addition to joint income from movies like Overboard, Private Benjamin, The Thing, and more, also have a side hustle: their valuable Malibu beach house property.

The house, which is Balinese-inspired and located on Broad Beach, went on the market in 2011 for $14.8 million. For nearly three decades before that, the Hollywood couple had been renting it for $95,000 a month. Though renting was profitable, they had trouble selling the beachy retreat.

The Broad Beach estate was built during the seventies, when companies like GM and Exxon were having their heydays. One of the prettiest features of the estate is the flagstone courtyard, which leads you into the tropical-themed home. There is also a remodeled chef’s kitchen, two story great room, and foyer with a huge chandelier.
