Foul or slam-dunk? So, far, it is a foul.
Even an iconic athlete like Michael Jordan cannot sell a house if it is more than the market is willing to pay for it. The asking price of the mansion that Jordan listed for sale in February 2012 was lowered to $21 million from its original asking price of $29 million, Yahoo! Sports reports. The new asking price is about a 28% reduction of the original asking price.
The scuttlebutt on why the market is saying no to this palatial abode is that the former asking price was too high and scaring off potential buyers. The residence, which is not being marketed as belonging to Michael Jordan, is available for viewing only to pre-qualified prospective buyers.
