Sylvester Stallone's Reported New Palm Beach Home Is a Knockout

Sylvester Stallone is the buyer of a Palm Beach estate.

The Oscar-nominated star and his wife, Jennifer Flavin, purchased the mansion at 1480 North Lake Way for $35.4 million, according to the Palm Beach Daily News.

The Southpaw Trust, with Lester J. Knispel listed as trustee, took out a $15 million mortgage from CIBC Bank USA, records show.

The McMackins bought the 10,539-square-foot home from Lawrence Moens in 2018 for $26.7 million.

The property hit the market in June with an asking price of $37.8 million, according to Moens represented the McMackins in the deal, and Christian Angle of Christian Angle Real Estate represented Stallone.

Built in 2014, the estate includes three separate structures: the main house, a guest house and a guest pavilion, according to the listing. Property records show the lot spans more than an acre.

In total, the property has seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The house has views of the water and more than 250 feet of sandy beachfront.

Stallone adds to celebrities who have lived in the Palm Beach area. This month, Jimmy Buffett sold his Palm Beach home for $7 million, and Springsteen drummer Max Weinberg sold his home in Delray Beach for$5 million. In July, Bon Jovi bought an oceanfront Palm Beach estate for $43 million.

Real Estate Market Report

Real Estate Market Report - January 2021

December is normally one of the slowest months of the year but strong buyer demand across most segments of the market, buoyed by near-record low interest rates, continue to drive a healthy sales pace in the face of a new wave of COVID-19 infections and a softening jobs market.
New Listings increased 18.2 percent for Residential homes and 46.6 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes. Pending Sales increased 22.1 percent for Residential homes and 41.6 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes. Inventory decreased 34.9 percent for Residential homes and 8.0 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes. 
Median Sales Price increased 11.1 percent to $200,000 for Residential homes and 7.5 percent to $174,720 for Townhouse/Condo homes. Days on Market decreased 25.8 percent for Residential homes and 18.0 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes. Months Supply of Inventory decreased 41.4 percent for Residential homes and 13.0 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes. 
With low mortgage rates and strong buyer demand in most market segments, the housing market of early 2021 looks to continue the trends we saw in the second half of 2020. Low inventory and multiple offers on indemand properties and market segments are likely to remain common while the market waits and hopes for a boost in new construction and a surge in home sellers to help provide more balance to the market.
