Scottie and Larsa Pippen finally sell their Florida home
After 12 years and several price drops, we can report the falling confetti.
NBA Legend Scottie Pippen and ex-wife Larsa pippen eventually sold their Fort Lauderdale, Florida mansion for $ 10,545,000.
Earlier this year, the waterfront mansion returned to the market for $ 12 million, with Larsa taking care of the promotion. Her pitch included a video in which she promises to add a $ 1.5 million car collection for sale. The new strategy apparently worked.
The domain was first listed for $ 16 million in 2009. Later, they even offered it for rent for $ 40,000 per month. The reasons it has languished in the market for over a decade include the style of the house, the location of the canal, and the desire of buyers for new construction.
In the past, the NBA Hall of Famer has taken the lead in efforts to sell the mansion. In 2000, the couple bought empty land for $ 1.3 million, then built the mansion in 2004..
In a renewed effort to engage buyers, Larsa hired Nest Seekers International. Elliott’s team Erin sykes and Margo fuller at Nest Seekers International represented the list.
“We worked closely with Larsa to create a new strategy, including reconfiguring and targeting key buyer demographics. In addition, we have launched a creative marketing strategy, ”says Shawn Elliott, president of the ultra-luxury division of Nest Seekers. “We believe these new items led to the sale.
Known as Villa Del Lago, the residence is part of the Harbor Beach gated community and features 215 feet of frontage on the Intracoastal Waterway. Buyers can stop in their personal yacht, as the deep-water dock can accommodate vessels up to 190 feet.
