Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom reportedly selling mansion
TMZ reports that the celebrity couple is looking to break even on the home in Tarzana, Calif.
Editor's note: Kardashian has taken to Twitter to deny reports that she is selling the home.
Lamar Odom’s Miami rental may not be the only property that the embattled NBA star is shopping. Take it for what it's worth, but "real estate sources tell TMZ" that Odom and his wife, Khloe Kardashian, are privately selling their home in California's San Fernando Valley.
Per the celebrity rumor mill: "Khloe has given several San Fernando Valley realtors a pocket listing — meaning the house will not appear in the multiple listing service. It's being done on the down low. Any prospective buyer must prequalify before seeing the house, meaning they must have the dough to buy the crib."
The celebrity couple is apparently looking to roughly break even on the home they purchased together in the fall of 2009. Odom and Kardashian are said to be shopping the Tarzana mansion for $4 million – or just $5,000 more than what they paid for the Mediterranean home of 8,000-plus square feet.
Found in the upscale guard-gated community of Mulholland Estates, the compound estate is situated on a three-quarter-acre cul-de-sac lot within the private enclave. Offering seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, the home features faux Venetian-plastered walls, stone flooring and custom wood cabinetry.
Amenities include a home gym, a theater room, a swimming pool with a copious amount of lounge area and a motor court with parking for 15 cars.
The rumored pocket listing comes one month after a home owned by Lamar Odom surfaced on the Miami rental market with a price tag of $17,000 a month. Odom acquired the palatial Pinecrest, Fla., property for $3 million in the summer of 2009, when the then-free-agent forward was being courted heavily by the Miami Heat and bride-to-be Khloe Kardashian was set to launch the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” spinoff, “Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.” Odom eventually re-upped with the Los Angeles Lakers on a four-year, $33 million contract, but evidently opted to keep the South Beach home.
Odom and Kardashian previously found themselves on the opposite end of the rental spectrum in 2012, when they were reportedly paying $7,500 a month to lease a high-rise apartment in Dallas owned by Mack Hicks, the son of Texas Rangers owner and area business magnate Tom Hicks. The rental came after the Lakers shipped the NBA’s 2011 Sixth Man of the Year to the Dallas Mavericks during the 2012 offseason. Odom returned to Los Angeles the following year after being dealt by the Mavs to the Clippers. The 34-year-old is a free agent.

I wonder if they bought their properties outright or paid a down and make monthly payments. Anyone know? If they make payments, it is a waste of money. So I'm guessing that's what they do
