In 2019 we saw a ton of celebrities buying and selling high profile homes. The price record across the country was smashed, former White House inhabitants purchased a vacation home, and homes known for their roles on television went up for sale.
Some of the most recent real estate news from 2019 is the purchase of a Martha’s Vineyard home for $11.75 million by The Obama Family. This home had a lengthy run on the market with an original asking price of $22 million.
