“House Party” is Realtor.com®’s official podcast about the overlapping worlds of real estate and pop culture, hosted by Natalie Way and Rachel Stults. Click the player above to hear our take on this week’s hot topics.
We’ve had our eyes on Kelly Clarkson‘s real estate portfolio for a while now. The singer and TV personality famously bought—and is currently selling—two megamansions, one in Los Angeles and one in Tennessee. In terms of features, these two abodes are comparable. Both feature massive five-digit floor plans, extensive backyard water features, and farmhouse-style touches like exposed wood. They’re both located in star-studded enclaves. (The Los Angeles home is in Encino, and the Tennessee estate is in Hendersonville.) And, of course, they both have the celebrity pedigree of being owned by the beloved Clarkson.
But the one glaring difference between these two properties? The Tennessee estate has been languishing on the market for years. Four years, to be exact.
However, this week we finally learned that Clarkson found a buyer for her Hendersonville house, but the final sale price is unknown. (She did reduce the price to $7.5 million in December 2020.) Guess we’ll just have to wait a little longer to see if Clarkson will walk away from this one a winner.
But the question remains: Why did it take so long for this sprawling Southern estate to sell? We have some theories that we couldn’t wait to propose on this week’s episode. In addition to celebrating Clarkson unloading her Tennessee palace, we also toast a “House Party” milestone: our 100th episode! We couldn’t have done it without our loyal listeners, and we are so grateful for their support.
