Kristen Bell last purchased this property at the height of the housing bubble for $3.1 million on November 16, 2006. It was later foreclosed on January 30, 2012 for $2,622,934. I believe this is the amount remaining owed on the property which means the difference was the down payment or possibly another loan which was the down payment. Its also possible there were other loans secured against this property that were lost in foreclosure. But dont quote us here, just speculating. All I know is that there is a difference of $477,066 between the original purchase price and the foreclosed price. Make of that what you will.

When she was living in the house, InStyle.com captured 4 images of her house and dogs which can be viewed here. According to the Realestalker, Kristen Bell possibly moved with her fiance actor Dax Shepard.
