Jessica Alba Was Able to Sell Her Spanish-Style Los Angeles Home in Record Time and Everyone’s in Shock
When celebrities list a property up for sale, they typically wait months even years before they’re able to find a buyer for it. Not Jessica Alba though.
The 38-year-old actress and Honest company founder just sold one of her former homes in just a few weeks time. This is how she did it:
A Little Help
After living in the Spanish-style Beverly Hills house for over a decade, Alba decided to sell off the property for a mansion upgrade. The actress initially bought the property for $4.05 million and just sold it for $6.195 million, indeed, a good return of investment.
But what made the deal easier and much faster is the fact that her father, Mark, helped the actress sell it thorugh his realty business, Alba Realty. The star also got help from Jade Mills from Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
Not a Hard Sell
Looking at Alba’s beautiful former home, it’s no wonder how easy it was for her and her father to offload it. The recently-sold house was originally built in 2007 and occupies an area of 5,364 square feet. It stands on a half-acre land plot in a gated community in Beverly Hills and features Spanish-influenced design and architecture.
The main house has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms while its separate guesthouse has an extra two bedrooms and its own kitchenette. Inside the main house are a formal living room and dining room with rustic wood floors and tons of natural light. The kitchen doesn’t disappoint as well with its all-white cabinets and modern kitchen appliances
Upstairs is the master bedroom which offers a cozy vibe with its view of the backyard trees and its own fireplace. It also has not one but two walk-in closets which most likely came in handy for all of its former celebrity owner’s wardrobe.
But the real deal is the house’s patio and backyard where the outdoor kitchen and swimming pool are located making the home a fantastic one for entertaining guests. The backyard is also impressively decorated with palm trees, a cabana area, and a waterfall attached to the pool.
Jessica’s New Home
As mentioned earlier, Alba probably sold her former abode since she has now upgraded to a bigger, grander home.
Back in 2017, the actress bought an almost $10 million mansion still in the Beverly Hills area. The seven-bedroom, 8.5-bath, East Coast-style home was originally the property of film producer Mike Medavoy, who’s known for films like, Black Swan and Shutter Island.
Despite being a native of sunny West Coast Los Angeles, Alba prefers the architecture style of homes found in the East Coast particularly those in the affluent Hamptons. Like her former home, this two-floor manse features a main house and a cottage-style guesthouse on its 1.85-acre area.
