Unlike Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen finally dunks buyer for Chicago mansion

4

After four years on and off the market, Scottie Pippen has finally scored a buyer for his Chicago estate, while his former teammate Michael Jordan has spent the better part of a decade trying to sell his abode.

The home, which was recently available to rent on Airbnb for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, received a pending offer on Tuesday for $2 million.

The six-time NBA champion first listed the property in 2016 for $3 million. 

Pippen purchased the Highland Park home in 2004 for $2.23 million at the time.

Spanning a massive 10,000 square feet on 2.6 acres of land, the home is made up of five bedrooms and six bathrooms.

Meanwhile, Jordan’s home in the same upscale neighborhood, priced at a whopping $14,855,000, hasn’t seen any offers in nearly 10 years. 

It doesn’t help that it’s also the priciest property on the block located in a depreciating, high tax town.

Pippen and Jordan left their Chicago lives behind years ago, and are both currently living in sunny Florida. 

The Chicago Tribune first reported on the pending sale.
