4020 South Ocean Blvd.
Well its been 6 months since I almost closed a mega deal on a 8 million dollar oceanfront mansion with none other than Rob Vanwinkle AKA "Vanilla Ice". Myself and several others would have made a great deal of money on this deal. All of our careers would have skyrocketed and The Vanilla Ice Project would have made history. Although we did not close the deal, I am extremely grateful for the time I spent with all parties including the previous home owner Ken brown. I learned a lot about big money negotiations and I almost saved the day for a good friend of mine. I also was able to really connect with Rob personally which is not easy to do with his busy schedule. We were so close and if we knew what we know now things would have been a lot different for all of us.
Turns out this property included the water rights behind the house! The new owner immediately put the water behind the Oceanfront mansion on the market for $6 million 2 days after closing on the property! He only paid $6.8 million for the estate, oceanfront lot, intracoastal lot and the water rights behind the house! The water rights behind the house are currently available and they are talking about either building a floating mansion or a luxury yacht club. Looks like the new owner will own the estate and both lots for $800,000.00 if this property sells. Here is the MLS link to the property for sale.
Until next time we will always have this video to remember the deal that slipped away from us.
