Jordan has apparently been trying to sell the house for a while, so this latest round of publicity was tied directly to putting the house up for auction and trying to find a properly motivated buyer.
Today word comes that the proper buyer has still yet to be found: The auction was held yesterday, and the reserve price was not met. According to the Tribune, the house was originally listed at $29 million, making it the most expensive house in the state of Illinois.
What’s next? As Jordan’s spokesperson tells the Tribune, “We are disappointed that the high bid in today’s auction of Michael Jordan’s residence in Highland Park did not meet the reserve price. Concierge Auctions gave great exposure to the property and opportunity, but the market conditions were just not right to drive a fair value. We will be evaluating options for the property in the new year.”
