The 7-bedroom, 9-bath crib is pretty AMAZING too ... 10-foot-high ceilings ...sleek modern decor ... movie theater ... massive game room ... infinity edge pool and spa. Plus, it sits on almost 2 acres of land.

Not gonna find that in Park Slope.

OH NO!    

Dumping usually means selling at a loss. It looks like he is asking $900K more than he paid for it. You can buy 20-30 mobile homes in the midwest for the profit alone.

Making $20 Million per year for the next 6 Years . . .
Surprised he doesn't just rent out the Atlanta Mansion to someone.
As long as he's bringing in more than his mortgage each month.

According to local real estate reports, Johnson lost the house, which will soon be shortlisted. He did not put the house of his own free will.
