And you could’ve gotten it for a bargain, too!
Jones has sold his mansion-estate in Roswell, GA, for a loss. Measuring 23,504 square feet in size, the rough equivalent of three baseball diamonds, the mansion originally hit the market in May 2013 for $3.195 million. It ultimately sold in March for $2.8 million—$395,000 less than his original ask and $1.53 million less than what Jones paid for the property in 2005.
Jones now lives in a 4,500 square foot house in a different Atlanta burb. The house with the Bat Cave from which he rescues first basemen in distress. If he hadn’t taken a bath on the big mansion he maybe could’ve afforded to put up drywall over those cinderblocks.
Anyway, I can’t say too much about Chipper’s real estate acumen. I too bought a house in 2005. Everyone was doing it back then. And most folks who did probably overpaid like Chipper and I did. Alas.
