You know how we know Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt feels pretty good about his future in the desert? About a month ago he listed his Chandler pad on the real estate market. His contract will help him earn between $5.5 and $6 million a year – base. Of course it’s time to sell off the puny 5 bed with a decent pool. But this tropical paradise isn’t getting the job done. Ken’s asking $1.3mm. Oh, hell yes he’s about to take a loss.
When you bought in 2007 ($1,850,000), and the Arizona housing market was at its peak, logic tells you Whis’ is in for a decent bath.
• 5 bed, 4.5 bath
• Honduras friggin’ Mahogany!
• 10 palm trees!
• You get a pontoon boat
• Swim-up grotto
Of all the houses we’ve profiled, this is a Top 3 Pool candidate. Adjust your offer accordingly. Don’t be fooled into thinking that waterway goes to a lake. The house sits on property that’s surrounded by channels. No lake. The other side of the channel is barren land. In other words, for $1 million you don’t get a view of much.
Mortgage: $5,100 mo. plus $6,000 in taxes.
