Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are keeping busy with their favorite hobby this summer. The constant home flippers are always buying and selling pricey real estate, but they’ve actually decided to lower their expectations a tad in Santa Barbara. The couple originally listed their 10.06-acre California spread for sale back in May, sticking on an $8.95 million tag, and now they’ve already lowered the equestrian property by exactly $1 million.
DeGeneres and de Rossi paid $6.7 million for the 1,959-square-foot house in a secret off-market deal less than a year ago, reports Variety, but perhaps they were always planning on just using this one as an investment property. Or, maybe they just get bored quickly.
