Usher has sold yet another Atlanta home; it’s his third sale in about a year.
This time it was his three-bedroom, three-bath house not far from Mercedes-Benz Stadium, TMZ reported.
Usher Raymond IV, who moved to Atlanta with his family at age 12, bought the house in June 2007 for $970,000. He decided to sell it about a year and a half ago, which would be before he filed for divorce from his second wife, Grace Miguel.
The new owner of the 2,908-square-foot house appears to have gotten a good deal. In addition to its location and size, the house has a “sick rooftop deck,” according to a TMZ report. And the selling price was just $775,000.
The singer/songwriter sold his 8,022-square-foot Alpharetta home, first bought in 1998 from the legendary music executive L.A. Reid, in July 2018.
That mansion in an exclusive gated community — which featured seven bedrooms, eight and 1/2 bathrooms, a climate-controlled treehouse, a private dance studio and a yoga studio — fetched a cool $1.5 million. He reportedly paid $1.2 million for that home.
The third home was listed in March 2018 when he put his 4,261-square-foot home — situated right behind the famed Chateau Marmont on the Sunset strip — on the market for $4.2 million. It sold in November for $3.3 million, Variety reported.
This is not the first time the singer has lost money in the real estate game, Variety reported. In 2007, he paid $3.04 million for an almost 13,000-square-foot Roswell mansion that he sold in late 2013 for just $2.2 million.
