Buy Ricky Martin’s house
Ricky Martin has listed his Miami Beach house for sale. Price? $16.9 million dollars. The waterfront estate is located at 5130 N. Bay Road, if you want to go take a look: six bedrooms, three fireplaces, a one-bedroom guest house out back, and a pool overlooking Biscayne Bay. Oh, and there’s an elevator. Very practical.
Don’t worry, he won’t be homeless–he still has homes in Los Angeles, New York and Puerto Rico. We US residents may be surprised to learn that Mr. Martin can afford such fabulous real estate, as he hasn’t had much of a hit in this country since he was “Livin’ la Vida Loca” back in…how long ago was that? 1999? Little do the gringos know, he’s a huge star in Latin America, with platinum albums and hit tours and everything. Or perhaps he’s making all his money from the real estate itself: he’s listing the home for $16.9 million, but he bought it in 2005 for $10 million. That’s a hefty profit. The last house he flipped in 2004 brought him a profit of $4 million. Who is his real estate agent?
No word where he’s going to buy next; although it will probably be somewhere more private, perhaps without his address published on the internet.
