Jay-Z and Beyonce House Hunting Hints — five perfect places for the superstar couple and their expanding flock to nest. Which would you pick?
Now that the word is out that the Jay-Z and Beyonce house hunting rumors are for real, (they’ve only rented up to this point), of course I’m going to speculate about where they’ll end up, house hound that I am. So when Realtor.com asks me to select five likely candidates, I jumped at the chance.
Jay-Z and Beyonce house hunting rumors
There has been talk of the A-list couple settling down here for years. In 2014 they were reported to be interested in a modern spec home built by Bruce Makowsky, but Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson posted the highest bid, at $70 million.
There’s also the gorgeous Beverly Hills mansion Tom Ford supposedly beat them out on, bidding $50 million against their $49 million. Since then, they have rented a few mansions in the area, including the one featured on an episode of Ray Donovan.
I’ll be sure to keep you posted on where the Jay-Z and Beyonce house hunting finally ends, but in the meantime, which of these homes do you think would be best for them?
