Dallas Mavericks: Marty Turco
According to a report in today's Chicago Tribune, the world champion center and former Chicago Bull, recently took a bath selling his Chicago-area, 20-room, brick-and-limestone mansion.
Here's an excerpt from the article:
The 7-foot-1 Chandler, 28, took one of the biggest housing losses of any area celebrity in recent years, selling his mansion for slightly more than half of what he paid for it in mid-2006. As the Red Eye newspaper reported in September 2006, Chandler paid $4 million for the mansion — just weeks before he was traded to the New Orleans Hornets after five seasons with the Bulls. Chandler first listed the three-story mansion in 2007 for $4.99 million, and over the years reduced his asking price many times. Its final asking price was $2.895 million.
In other Chicago real estate news involving, in this case, a former Dallas athlete, the same article reports that a 14-room house in Chicago's Lakeview's neighborhood that Blackhawks goaltender Marty Turco, a longtime Dallas Star, is renting has been listed for $2.4 million and also is up for rent for $10,000 a month. Turco, 35, has rented the Southport Corridor mansion for almost a year. He joined the Blackhawks last August and is a free agent. His lease ends at the end of August.
I'm sure it's got a great view.
