Jennifer Aniston has reportedly sold her apartments in New York City at a $500,000 loss. The actress is willing to do whatever it takes to cut ties with the city and establish her life permanently in California.
Aniston paid $7.01 million for two condominiums in New York's West Village but was unable to sell them for more than $6.5 million. Real estate developer Daniel Neidich is now the proud owner of the star's former homes, according to the New York Daily News.
"She loved them [the condos] but her circumstances changed and the space was just wrong," an anonymous source told the New York Post.
Aniston reportedly wanted to get rid of the apartments as quickly as possible, even if that meant taking a $500,000 loss, the Daily News said. "We tried New York," Aniston told Australia's "Kyle and Jackie O Show" hosts. "It felt like I was in a fishbowl, and I felt mortified for my neighbors."
"Justin still has an apartment [in New York]… It was a little rough with the paparazzi. It didn't feel like the New York I grew up in and knew," Aniston said. "Here in L.A. you have a more relaxed sense of the world and life and you realize there's nothing to be taken too seriously besides doing your work and being a really good person."
The couple recently purchased a $24.9 mansion in California, and it is clear that Aniston feels more at home in L.A. Theroux and Aniston are renting out a small home in Hollywood Hills while renovations are completed on the mansion.
The New York properties are only two of the three Aniston has sold recently. She sold her mansion in Beverly Hills, which she bought after breaking up with ex-husband Brad Pitt, for $36 million. Now that the actress is not tied to her past and can happily settle in California, one wonders what is next for Aniston.
