Jennifer Lopez's Old Miami Beach Mansion Back On the Market For $40 Million

Categories: Unreal Estate
Jennifer Lopez sold her Miami Beach mansion for $13.9 million back in 2005. The new owners originally put the La Gorce Island home on the market for $29 million in 2010. It didn't sell, so now they've changed the price. A discount? No. It's now listed for $40 million. All of this should give you an idea of just how crazy the high-end Miami Beach real estate market is right now.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Mark Gainor, a health care entrepreneur, and his wife bought the home from Lopez in 2005. The couple immediately put $11 million worth of renovations into the home, and after five years put it back on the market at $28 million. Now the price has risen 40 percent to the $40 million mark. The realtor says the price increase represents rising property values in the area.

Indeed, the most expensive home in Miami-Dade history, an Indian Creek pad, sold earlier this month for a reported $47 million. At the very least, the upped asking price gets the property in the headlines and perhaps generates some interest.

Will not sell for anywhere close to that price...  Bet the sellers are lucky to break even after you consider the carrying costs on this pig...Easily a cool $120K per year x 6
