Retired baseball star Alex Rodriguez recently sold his Miami home for $6.3 million, according to a report by Realtor.com.
The real estate sale occurred just eight months after A-Rod purchased the single-story home for $5.5 million in April. Weeks later, he put the house back on the market, initially asking $8.5 million.
Rodriguez played for 22 seasons with the New York Yankees, the Seattle Mariners and the Texas Rangers. Now retired, the baseball legend serves as an ESPN analyst and is a part-owner of the NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves.
Built in 1962 and set on a third of an acre in the gated Bay Point community, the 3,100-square-foot residence offers four bedrooms and three bathrooms with views of Sabal Lake and the Miami skyline.
The listing notes that the buyer can opt to build anew or renovate, describing both options as a “win-win” because of the home’s location right in the heart of Miami’s Design District.
The buyers are more interested in the residence’s location than the structure itself and plan on building a spec home that showcases the property’s views, according to the report. The property is close to Miami Beach, downtown Miami, the highways and the airport.
The former third baseman also owns a $40 million property on Star Island that he reportedly purchased with his ex-wife, Jennifer Lopez, and a mansion in Florida’s Coral Gables.
