The House That Jordan Built (Well, Is Selling)

Here are some comments from Baird & Warner’s own Tom Gill.

On February 29th 2012, as I’m sure you’ve heard by now, Michael Jordan listed his Highland Park home for sale through Baird & Warner realty. ABC news reports that this home can be yours. The heir to his home. For $29 million. Despite pleading to my parents, this home cannot be mine, and for whatever strange reason no bank is willing to give a 30 million dollar loan to a junior in college. This piece of Chicago can only be very few peoples actually. It would take a large celebrity to match a price like this or a random Michael Jordan fan, with extremely deep pockets.

Don’t be fooled. The home isn’t solely worth that much because it belonged to the King of Chicago sports or because maybe he scribbled a signature somewhere inside the house. It comes complete with an indoor basketball facility (obviously), 32,683 square feet, 3 garages capable of holding 15 total cars, combined with tennis courts, a pool, a pond and a putting green.

As much as I wish I could own this house, it’s only slightly out of my price range. But if you have the financial position to live in one of the most famous most luxurious houses in the Chicago land area, I highly suggest you do, and invite me over for a visit. Who knows, MJ might even throw in an autographed picture to go with it.
