The home was last purchased on July 28, 2010 for $2.1 million and is currently listed for $2,995,000 on June 25, 2014 which would net a gain of $895,000 for Harris before taxes, commissions, and any renovation expenses.
Prior to living in the Sherman Oaks home, Harris was living in a 3 Bed Studio City ranch home that was purchased in May 2007 for $1.5 million and sold on April 28, 2011 for $1.535 million probably resulting in a small loss. The Studio City home was previously discussed on this blog here.
It appears that Harris and his man-friend fiance as well as their 2 year old twin boys have left CA altogether as the listing pictures show empty rooms and the New York Post published a September 5, 2013 article discussing Harris' Fifth Ave. townhouse purchase for $3.6 million.
