Fan Buys Michael Jackson's House

Published January 28, 2010

A long time fan recently purchased a home of the late Michael Jackson.

The 16,400-square-foot mansion in Las Vegas, NV where Jackson resided in for six months in late 2007 and 2008 was sold for $3.1 million to a fan of the late King of Pop.

The home’s lender, Eastern Savings Bank, in lieu of it going through foreclosure with the previous owner, according to Carolyn Mullany, a realtor with Coldwell Banker Premier, ultimately took the home back.

A California couple, a doctor and a lawyer who also owns property in Asia, purchased the home by paying cash, Mullany stated.

Problems with selling the house arose when fans of the singer, pretending to be potential buyers, contacted realtors trying to visit the mansion.

The home, among other features, has seven bedrooms, three office suites, an elevator, large formal rooms for entertainment, a theater room and an orchestra loft. The estate itself sits on one acre and is gated with 8-foot walls surrounding it.
