After Only 5 Months Rosie O'Donnell Is Selling Her Lake View Home

After Only 5 Months Rosie O'Donnell Is Selling Her Lake View Home

Wow! It's only been 5 months and Rosie O'Donnell's home is back on the market. Back in September she closed on the Lake View home at 1517 W Grace for $2.25 million cash.  According to an article in the Chicago Tribune Rosie O'Donnell is "re-evaluating her real estate holdings". The article goes on to say that

...the talk-show host had bought the house "impulsively" and that given her children come to visit only on the weekends, O'Donnell does not need so large of a house.  In fact, ...a corporate-supplied apartment had proved sufficient.

I dunno. I think she just wants to move into Trump Tower to be close to the Donald. Whatever. This certainly violates the 5 - 7 year rule for buying a place.

Rosie is listing the home for $2.5 million dollars, using the same realtor that listed the place previously - who also happened to be on both sides of the deal - a dual agency situation.
