With his baseball career on ice, Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is making a little money in the real estate market. The embattled player is suspended for the season because of doping allegations, but he managed to make a tidy profit on his Miami Beach luxury condo when he sold it this month for $2.575 million.
He bought the home for $2.1 million just last June. He initially listed it in November for $3.2 million, but dropped the price in January to $2.99 million. According to the Wall Street Journal, A-Rod decided he wanted something bigger on the beach.
The three-bedroom condo offers wraparound balconies with views of the ocean and Miami Bay in a luxury building with white modern decor by Briggs Edward Solomon.
This isn’t the first time Rodriguez has quickly changed his mind about fancy Miami real estate. In 2012, he listed his 20,000-square-foot North Bay Road home soon after finishing its construction.
The property was listed by Rodriguez’s sister, Arlene Dunand of One Sotheby’s International Realty.
