tyler perry

Contrary to published reports that media tycoon Tyler Perry sold his Buckhead Atlanta mansion at a huge profit for $17.5 million, he actually lost millions on the sale.

A well-connected real estate source says Perry poured $15 million into home improvements after purchasing the house on 17 acres of land for $9 million in 2005.

Perry originally listed the 9 bedroom, 5 bath house for $25 million in June of last year. He finally unloaded the property to an unknown buyer for $17.5 million in cash earlier this month.

According to my real estate insider:

"Perry might be strapped for cash because his house originally listed for 25 million and he put 15 million in it for improvements, thus he took a $6.5 million loss on the property."

    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • melissaisasnob

    When these numbers are calculated people often forget to deduct the cost of living there. He would've had to pay to live somewhere. Therefore, the loss is not always as big as the numbers suggest. How much would it had cost him to rent a place that size for the length of time that he lived there? You can't live for free.

  • Just Keya

    Seeing as how it was him and this mystery baby we have not seen in forever, did he really need all that house anyway?

    He went full on Michael Jackson and sent the mama away? I thought he had the baby with his "woman"

  • iWasteTime

    As a person buying a home in this economy, though not on this level, NO home is going for asking price. It is truly a buyers market. Why the banks are holding on to forecloses for dear life, trying to get more for them when the market recovers.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Hey Keya, how are the chirren? You? Bun in the oven?
