Real estate is a complex market, and just because someone is famous doesn’t mean they’re immune to its whims. Some properties, regardless of their features or the name attached, struggle to find a buyer. Here, we’re taking a look at six celebrities who, for various reasons, have houses that haven’t flown off the market.

6. Kid Rock’s Colonial-Style Home In Detroit


Kid Rock owns a colonial-style property in Detroit, which features three dormers, a colonnade, and a private boathouse with a large roof deck and Jet Ski lifts. It was first listed in July 2019 for $2.2 million, while there were only four single-family homes in Detroit asking for more than $1 million. The home has remained on the market for longer than expected, eventually being sold in 2022.

5. Mary J. Blige’s New Jersey Mansion


Mary J. Blige owns a mansion in New Jersey, which was first listed in August 2019 for $3 million. The mansion has been on and off the market for over three-and-a-half years.

Blige has another New Jersey estate in Saddle River, purchased for $12.3 million in 2008. Saddle River estate has 13,856 square feet, eight bedrooms, a home cinema, elevator, basketball court, and wine cellar. It was initially listed in 2010 for $13 million and sold a decade later in 2020 for $5.5 million.

4. Rihanna’s Hollywood Hills House


Rihanna owns a property in the Hollywood Hills. First listed in December 2018 for $7.3 million, it had one price cut in October 2021, a month after listing it a second time. In 2022, the property was sold for $6,5 million.

3. Celine Dion’s Bahamian-Inspired Mansion In Jupiter Island


Celine Dion purchased her Bahamian-inspired mansion on Jupiter Island in early 2008 for over $7 million. The singer invested in creating a paradise-like ambiance, complete with 13 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, a beach frontage, a tennis pavilion, a golf range simulator, a pool house, an outdoor kitchen, and a four-car garage. She first listed the mansion in 2013 for $72.5 million and eventually sold it in April 2017 for $28 million after several price cuts.

2. Pierce Brosnan’s Malibu Mansion


Actor Pierce Brosnan has a Malibu mansion first listed in 2020 for $100 million. With panoramic ocean views and modern design, the 13,000-square-foot mansion was inspired by Southeast Asian aesthetics. Located among modern glass boxes and other Spanish-style mansions, it hasn’t secured a buyer and is now off-market.

1. Michael Jordan’s Mansion In Illinois


Topping our list is Michael Jordan and his mansion in Illinois. First listed in February 2012 for $29 million, it had three price cuts, eventually reduced to just shy of $14.9 million in 2015. Located in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park, this 33,000-square-foot home has nine bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, a full-size indoor basketball court, and a gymnasium. Interior features include an infinity pool, putting green, tennis court, cigar room, movie theatre, wine cellar, and poker room. The house is currently off-market.
