Summary List Placement

Over a year ago, Justin Bieber turned to Instagram seeking a buyer for his multimillion-dollar Los Angeles, California, home. As of Friday, the home is finally off the market, but it sold for $500,000 less than what Bieber originally paid for it, The Los Angeles Times reports.

The 6,100-square-foot property, located in the upscale Beverly Hills neighborhood, has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, an office, a home theater, and a wine cellar with a small bar area.

Joshua and Matt Altman, of “Million Dollar Listing” fame, and Dalton Gomez, Ariana Grande’s fiancé, represented the listing.

Photos published on the listing agents’ websites show sleek modern decor, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, oak cabinets, an infinity pool, and plenty of greenery throughout the property.  The listing is currently marked “contract signed” on the realtors’ website.

When it first went on the market officially in October 2020, a year after Bieber first advertised it on Instagram, the home’s original asking price was just under $8.3 million, which would put the final reported sale price at approximately $300,000 below that.

The final sale price has not been confirmed by Insider. Altman, Gomez, and Bieber’s representatives did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment regarding the sale. 

Bieber bought the home in early 2019 and tried to sell it on Instagram just six months later

According to Architectural Digest, Bieber and his wife, Hailey Bieber, bought the home in March 2019 for $8.5 million. The young couple had been living in a $100,000-a-month rental in Toluca Lake until that point.

The home, called “The Tropics,” was built in the 1930s and renovated by production designer Charles Infante shortly before Bieber bought it, HGTV reported

Only about six months after the high-profile purchase, Bieber tried to court interested buyers in a series of Instagram posts.

“Home vibes, but I wanna sell it I think anyone interested?” he captioned one of the posts where “The Tropics” neon sign and wine cellar are visible alongside Bieber’s legs. 

“I’ll sell it with all the furniture. MAKE AN OFFER,” he wrote in another post.

It’s unclear whether the final sale includes all the furniture, as originally promised on Instagram. 

Bieber still has other multimillion-dollar homes

In August, Jack Flemming reported for the Los Angeles Times that Bieber had bought an even larger 11,000-square-foot, two-story home for $25.8 million in another part of Beverly Hills.

The sprawling home has a tennis court, a swimming pool, seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a gym, and a movie theater.

Two years before that, in August 2018, Bieber bought a 101-acre home lakeside property in Canada for $5 million. He appears to still own both properties.

Bieber also previously owned a Calabasas mansion that he sold to Khloe Kardashian in 2014 for $7.2 million. Kardashian sold the property herself in 2020 for a record-breaking $15.5 million — more than double what she paid for it.
