Shaq Gets Shorter Price on Florida Home!

Shaquille O’Neal could easily afford to wait out the sale of his Isleworth, Lake Butler estate near Orlando, Florida, which he purchased in 1993 for $3.95 million, and which became one in his later collection of homes around the country.  No, it didn’t sell for its original asking price of $28 million, nor did it sell for its later price reduction to $16.5 million.  It sold for $11 million and the retired NBA star and astute businessman went to the bank clutching his $7.05 million profit.  But it must have been fun to try.
