Alex Rodriguez dropped $5.5 million in April for an investment property in Miami right before his split with Jennifer Lopez.
But it looks like his plans quickly changed following the breakup.
Initially closing on the home on April 9, he quickly put the property back on the market on April 26, nearly 10 days after the former couple officially announced the split.
“We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” the two revealed in April 15, 2021 in a joint statement to NBC’s Today. “We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children.”
The house, located in Bay Point, finally sold on December 6 for $6.3 million. This marks the highest recorded canal front sale in Bay Point’s history.
“Inventory in Bay Point is scarce, and my clients were specifically looking for something on the water,” Julianna Castro of Compass, who represented the buyers in the sale, exclusively told The Post. “Having sold Alex the home earlier this year, I knew immediately that the property would be a perfect match. The views of Sabal Lake and Miami’s skyline sealed the deal. The new owners plan to build the most impeccable waterfront spec home, which will truly be a rare gem in the Bay Point community.”
A-Rod’s sister and real estate agent, Arlene Susy Dunand of Coldwell Banker Realty, represented him in the sale.
Made up of three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, the property spans over 3,100 square feet. The one-story home features ceramic and marble flooring.
Throughout their relationship, JLo and A-Rod have spent a lot of time in the sunny state, and invested in a $40 million Miami Beach estate located in Star Island they purchased in August 2020. The house remains under their ownership today.
While it’s unclear if A-Rod will have any more future Florida ventures, the former Yankee still owns a 12,000 square feet getaway in Coral Gables.
