Rob Dyrdek -- Unloads 'Rob & Big' Pad ... At $225,000 LOSS

Just because Rob Dyrdek's swanky L.A. pad was featured on his MTV show "Rob & Big" does not mean it's real estate gold ... TMZ has learned RD just sold it for $225,000 LESS than what he paid.

After sitting on the market for over six months, Rob finally unloaded the 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath pad near the Hollywood Hills for $1.175 million ... way under the $1.4 million he reportedly bought the place for back in 2005.

It's a great deal for the buyer ... not only was it the main stage for the reality show that made Rob famous ... it has 2,792 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, floor-to-ceiling windows, 15-ft ceilings, and a pool.

But don't feel too bad for Rob's loss, he likes playing with real estate. Rob sold his other, 4,700-square-foot L.A. home last year for over $2 million and then bought another pad in the Hollywood Hills for $2.5 million.
