Michael Jordan has been trying to sell his Highland Park mansion for two years, and it looks like he’s going to keep at it.
Crain’s Chicago Business reported Wednesday morning that the home’s $16-million listing had expired and was not renewed. The story quoted the realtor saying Jordan wanted to “give it a rest.”
Then, a few hours later, it reported that the listing was back up for the same price and with the same agent.
The 56,000-square-foot home was originally priced at $29 million in February 2012 and later reduced to $21 million in January of last year. Jordan elected to auction the property in October. However, the $13 million minimum bid was not met by any potential bidders.
The nine bedroom, 19 bathroom estate with a full size NBA basketball court and a man cave befitting a NBA superstar had an intensive marketing campaign including sophisticated videos and exposure on the NBC Today show to promote the auction.
