The Playboy Mansion Is For Sale, But There's One Major Catch
Do you have $200 million? Do you want to get rid of it, fast?
I have two suggestions: You could give all of your money to me (seriously, I'll take it, no questions asked) OR you could buy yourself the Playboy Mansion.
Believe it or not, the first option might be a better bet, because buying the Playboy Mansion comes with one extreme catch: You'll have to live with Hugh Hefner until he dies.
It doesn't sound so bad until you really think about it: You'd have to pay nearly a quarter of a billion dollars to live with an 89-year-old sex fiend who probably walks around naked all the time. AND you have to let him live there (in his bedroom, which you can't even go in) until he croaks.
Presuming you don't, ahem, help the process along (sorry, Hef) that means you'd one day wake up to find a dead body in your home. Not for nothing, but that would totally diminish the value of the house. Ain't nobody like ghosts.
If that doesn't bother you, there's also the fact that the Los Angeles property, which is reportedly in "tear-down" condition, is only actually worth like $80 million. Less, if you consider the dead body thing.
So, there you have it. Spend your money as you wish. Just remember my warning (and offer).
