As of last year Alex Rodriguez had his house in Miami on the market for an asking price of $38 million and Darren Rovell of ESPN.com reports that he finally sold the place for $30 million.

According to Rovell he paid $7.4 million for the place in 2010 and then dropped another $7.4 million or so into renovating the nine-bedroom property on 54,000 square feet of land. Either way, not a bad profit in three years.

The place is on the same block as Matt Damon, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh, but Rovell writes that the new buyer isn’t anyone famous.

    I read Arod sold it because the paparazzi would boat right up to his house and photograph him in his house or by the the pool

    I’m just glad to see that A-Rod is making some easy money.

    Whew! Now he has something he can retire on. I was getting worried that he’d be destitute once he was done playing.

      Depends how those poker games are going, I guess.

    That neighborhood measures a “block” differently than my neighborhood.

      Pretty sure those houses take up a normal block…

    The highest bid had been $20M, but Tom Hicks swooped in and stole it.

    • deathmonkey41 - May 24, 2013 at 3:25 PM

      He was asking for $38 mil- Hicks have least come back with a firm $160 offer.

    That profit can buy a lot of HGH.

      Zack must spend a lot of time away from you.

      • zacksdad - May 24, 2013 at 6:33 PM

        Actually he spends more time with me than anyone else. He is a realist just like me. Taught him not to believe lairs, like most athletes and politicians.

    Check out those servant’s houses all around A-Rod’s. Those little houses don’t suck.

    • jimeejohnson - May 24, 2013 at 8:02 PM

      Grammar police: servants’

    • badintent - May 25, 2013 at 1:51 AM

      Those little houses are for his pets. Dogs, Jackasses, snakes if you catch my drift.

    I would think having Wade and Bosh for neighbors would drive the selling price down.

    Oh wait, my bad. LameBron doesn’t live there so the new owner should be fine.

    Sincerely,
    Cavs Nation

    Then my alarm clock went off.
