Whitney Houston's New Jersey mansion has been listed for $1.75 million. If that price seems a bit much, the real estate agent has backed it by saying that being the owner of Houston's former mansion could be "a great conversation piece."
The home has drawn much attention as the location where the ceremony for Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's marriage took place. A listing provided by CarProperty.com however, has added even more selling points.
"This house was also the scene of the activity that brought down this incredible musical diva over a 15 year cycle. The mansion was also used in the filming of a 2005 reality show in which she and her ex-husband appeared at the pinnacle of Whitney Houston's fall from musical power and grace," the ad reads.
It also added, "With all of this incredible star studded history, if you owned this house you would always have these incredible stories to go with it. A great conversation piece for anyone."
Zoosk.com provided pictures of the estate, and has the property listed at $1,610,800 although CarProperty has listed the property at $1.75 million.
In January, before the announcement of Houston's death, RadarOnline had reported that the music artist was suffering from the lack of finances. "Whitney's fortune is gone," a source told the magazine. "Music industry heavy hitters are supporting her and her label is fronting her cash against her next album, but no one knows when that will be released."
Fans refused to buy into the rumors insisting that Houston was worth over $80 million dollars and adding that she was just about to appear in "Sparkles," a film schedule to debut in August with Jordan Sparks.
"We know she made a boatload of money while she was alive. She earned probably a quarter of a billion dollars on recorded music alone. Whether or not she actually died broke still is kind of being sorted out," Zack O'Malley Greenburg, staff writer of Forbes magazine, told CBS News.
Houston's estate is estimated to take in about $10 million, however, that number has been reported as significantly lower than the norm.
