Technically, Octomom’s home is not hers; her father purchased it for $450,000 in March 2009 from Amer Haddadin under very specific mortgage conditions: monthly payments of $4,139 and a final balloon payment due in March 2010 to fulfill the entire $450,000 mortgage. The final balloon payment was never made, Haddadin said, but luckily for Suleman, she was able to pick up a six-month extension on the payment agreement in April 2010.
Suleman has been clinging to the home ever since although Haddadin has been trying to convince her to list the home for months. Apparently, Suleman owes him close to $13,000 and has not made a payment since May.
According to the Orange County Register, Haddadin had no idea that the home was listed for sale Friday but was relieved to hear the news.
“I’m very glad if she can sell it,” he said.
The listing describes the house as a “previously owned celebrity home.” The house has 2,583 square feet of living space, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, plenty of room for the average U.S. family of four, but significantly small for Suleman and her 14 children. Here’s some math to ponder: A family of four in this home would each have approximately 645.7 square feet of living space; Suleman’s family of 15 each has 172.2 square feet of living space.
The cul-de-sac home didn’t provide a lot of privacy for the tabloid-friendly momma. Neighbors often complained about paparazzi and curious onlookers driving through the neighborhood to catch a glimpse of Suleman. According to a TMZ story, some real estate agents told neighbors that Suleman’s presence could drive down home values. Median La Habra home values are currently $346,200.
The listing is held by Rebecca Mercado of Keller Williams Realty.
