Michael Jordan’s mansion is apparently just unsellable.

The 60-year-old NBA star-turned-businessman is trying everything to sell his mansion, but nothing is working.

Michael Jordan spent around $50 million to buy and customize this mansion in the 1990s.

It comes with heightened security, great privacy and high-end fixtures, but Jordan has been struggling to find a buyer for over a decade now.

He first put it on sale for $29 million and then, when he realized it was still not going anywhere, he lowered the price to $14 million.

The property is listed as fully furnished, allowing buyers to live just like Jordan did in his heyday.

That’s because, among other things, Jordan decided to leave the furniture in to sweeten the deal.

Much of the furniture is priceless, including the amazing (and a bit weird) ‘Baghdad Table’.

it’s worth just under $40,000 and it showcase the silhouette of the streets of Baghdad, Iraq.

Yeah, we’re also not exactly sure why.

It looks great, though, doesn’t it?

Then there’s his basketball pavilion where Jordan and his teammates used to practice, complete with a locker room.

Michael Jordan’s mansion also boasts a basketball-shaped infinity pool, a wine cellar, and an ornate door taken from the Playboy Mansion.

A trophy room is at the heart of the home, trophies sadly not included.

However, the biggest strength of this mansion is also its biggest weakness.

The home was designed for, and by, Michael Jordan.

And anybody willing to spend eight figures on a home will probably want to make it ‘their own’.

So that means the buyer would either have to make do with this or redecorate the house completely.

In addition to that, the home is located in the suburbs of Chicago, which is not exactly the same as Beverly Hills or New York when it comes to real estate.

Jordan is even ready to give away a complete collection of his Air Jordan shoes to whoever buys the property.

Let’s see if that works.
