Just six months after buying a new condo, Alex Rodriguez is listing it for sale. In other celeb real estate news, Cameron Diaz is closing on a Manhattan apartment.
When you had a salary of $29 million in 2012, you can afford to be fickle with real estate, even if you’re no longer officially on your team’s payroll. Embattled baseball player Alex Rodriguez bought a condo in June 2013 for $2.1 million and just six months later, he has it back on the market for a million more.
While he did complete a full remodel and redesign of the Miami Beach condo, hiring “world-renowned Briggs Edward Solomon,” he’s listed it for $3.2 million — only $1 million more than what he paid for the place. With broker fees, taxes and the cost of flipping the unit, Rodriguez will not make a huge profit on the sale of the luxe condo.
A-Rod’s unit has three bedrooms and four baths on a 1,725-square-foot floor plan and includes wraparound balconies with ocean views.
Cameron Diaz is starring in a very New York movie in 2014: a remake of the classic “Annie.” It would only make sense that Diaz would seal the New York moment with a brand new condo in celebrity-friendly Chelsea.
Diaz bought a new place for $9.35 million in a luxury condo building with 50 units, which includes a penthouse currently listed for $55 million. Originally built in 1929, the tower was completely redone, yet retains an art deco exterior. Building amenities include a gym, yoga studio, 24-hour doorman and lounge with bar.
Diaz’s apartment in particular is a three-bedroom, 3.5-bath unit with 3,022 square feet of living space. Several of the windows have views of the Statue of Liberty and the Freedom Tower.
