Katy Perry

I Can't Unload

This Damn House!

The housing market may be bouncing back for a lot of people, but not Katy Perry, because we've learned she's about to list her Hollywood Hills house for WAY less than the purchase price.

Katy bought the house with Russell Brand when they were married. She has full title and has been quietly trying to sell it for a long time, but she's not getting anywhere near the $8 million she wants.

Katy wanted to avoid putting the house in the multiple listing service -- which is the Paul Revere of the real estate world. She wanted to sell the house on the down-low, but it's just not happening.

We've learned she's agreed to put the house in the MLS in 2 weeks, and she'll reduce the asking price to the mid 7s -- as in millions. But here's the deal ... Our real estate sources say she'll definitely sell it if someone offers in the high 6s.

The real estate market ... hot again for most -- cold for Katy.

I can see why. Looks like a summer rental in Florida for retired Seniors.

"Our real estate sources say she'll definitely sell it if someone offers in the high 6s."

If that information came directly from the agent and was considered commercial in confidence then Katy Perry should seek out a new agent ASAP.

Funny.

The "people" dissing the house are all agents of the buyer who hopes to get it on a great deal!

The Downside of Home Ownership... To Big is to Much, to Small is not Big enough... And being Upside Down is American Real Estate today. Enjoy that "Bath" of a Home Sale... I had to during my Suburban Home Sale... I looked at giving the new owners a quality home to raise anything... Plant or Human. It's Good Karma...?

Old, Outdated and just plain UGLY. Only in California would this house be worth anything like $5 mill. In most of the country this is a tear down....

Hire an interior designer with some TASTE to completely re-do that hideous mess! Get rid of the hideous furniture and furnishings, paint some DECENT colors because it is waaaay too dark, especially with all that wood. If you want to sell a house, you don't put it on the market looking like something out of the ADAMS FAMILY! Sheesh.

Anyone who spends $8 million on a roof over their head doesn't appreciate the money they have to begin with.

Whomever decorated that hideous house should be slapped. Looks like a storage unit for garbage.

I'd de-clutter first, unload the old dark furniture, remove the dated wallpaper and drapes and have it staged. It's a lovely home, just needs to be freshened up a bit.
