Is everyone enjoying a lazy Saturday? I know I am. I’m really good at being lazy. So I am going to make this MDLLA recap quick and dirty (I hope). It’s hot so while I can’t get any wine right now, I’m drinking beer. And gaining around a pound a minute. But whatever.
Tracy is flying to Scottsdale Arizona for a listing appointment. WHY? Do they not have real estate agents in Scottsdale? WOW! It’s a 20,000 square foot mansion with a back yard that is enormous and has views of Camelback mountain. This place is gorgeous. The paid $1.6 million to carve out part of the mountain. They spent another $100K on a glass table they had flown in from Italy. This place is really over the top. The backsplash in the kitchen was painted by the artist who painted Versace’s swimming pool in Miami. The master suite has two bathrooms a his and a hers. The master suite is about three or four times the size of my house. Okay, maybe ten times bigger. The two story walk-in closet is the size of a store. And it looks like a store.
There is a ballroom. Because everyone needs a ballroom. Why is the lawn fake? That’s just ridiculous. Oh Tracy later says it is because of the heat, growing grass is difficult. In LA it would be a $70 million dollar home. This is the owners 22nd house she has built. It was previously listed at $23 million. Tracy plans to co-list with a local agent. You can tell Tracy wants this house. The list the house for just other $14 million. That seems like a steal. Tracy holds a fancy broker’s open.
Josh Altman has a nice listing in the birds neighborhood. It was previously listed and because of that there is a list of buyers on the exclusion list. That means if they want to buy the house, Josh gets not commission. And one of those buyers has made a bid before Josh could even market the property. So now he has 24 hours to come up with a buyer with a better offer. So he is pulling out all the stops. The only problem is that the entire neighborhood is under construction.
Nonetheless, Altman has a buyer. He listed the house at $22 million. His offer is $15.5 million. Seriously? That’s hardly an offer. The seller then lets Josh know that the other buyer was not actually on the exclusion list. Josh got his buyer up to $16.5 million. That’s his first sale in the new office full of legos.

My Chewy order finally came so that I can stop cooking for Banjo for a while. The delivery person was a female and she could not get past the driveway with the box. So I had to open the box and bring things inside indivdually. I am completely exhausted now. Some come fix Banjo a bowl.
These guys have not had much interest in their beautiful Santa Monica listing just steps from the beach. I want to live there. I don’t understand what the issue could be unless it is over priced. They listed it at just under $18 million on last week’s episode. It’s perfection. So David is on hand to do some private showings. This is a great family house with a beautiful back yard. But they have to get the seller down on the price. But the seller isn’t budging. The house has been on the market for 80 and is beyond stale. She wants to give it the full 90 days. I have a feeling that the sellers will pull the listing off the market for a second time.
Next week: FREDRICK IS BACK! And Josh Flagg is back. /highkick!
