Jakob Dylan Lists Malibu Compound at $4,150,000

Jakob Dylan houseLike a rolling stone--oh wait, that's his dad--Jakob Dylan has just listed his gated Malibu home for $4,150,000. That's a price drop from an earlier listing of $4,450,000. Dylan, through a blind trust, bought the house in 2008 for a recorded price of $3,350,000.

The property, a ranch home on 1.3 flat acres, is within walking distance of the beach. Built originally in 1957, the four-bedroom home is fully remodeled, with a new kitchen and hardwood floors. The secluded setting is about as private as one would expect a Dylan to demand.

The property sale includes completed plans and permits to build a new 6,200-square-foot contemporary Mediterranean-style residence and pool designed by architect Robert Ramirez. Even better, it's right down the street from Matthew McConaughey's place.

Jakob Dylan is of course a celebrity in his own right, even if not one who reached the iconic status of his famous father, Bob Dylan. The songwriter-singer is scheduled to perform May 12 on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" during the show's week-long tribute to Reggae star Bob Marley. He has also enjoyed success as the lead singer of The Wallflowers and, more recently, Three Legs. Dylan is the youngest of four children born to Bob Dylan and wife actress Paige Dylan.

Chris Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker-Malibu West office has the listing, according to the MLS.

Seller financing can be a great way to get a house sold without slashing the price. By recognizing the millions of people who can't get traditional financing as potential buyers, resourceful property sellers (and their real estate agents) can minimize their time investment in getting a property sold. Even better, sellers who offer financing can usually get a higher asking price for their property, even in the slowest markets. Clearly this is a win-win situation.

Most home sellers never consider financing the buyer directly because they are not aware of the benefits or don't fully understand how creating a note works. Let's take a closer look at the advantages of owner finance.

Three Advantages

Seller financing is very powerful when the market is slow or when there are many similar houses on the market. Just listing the house as "OWC" - Owner Will Carry - will make the house stand out and attract more buyers. Because many individuals cannot get funding from a bank, offering financing will open the doors to these prospective customers as well, essentially significantly increasing the pool of potential buyers. So, advantage #1 is MORE BUYERS.

Bob Dylan is an ICON/LEGEND , not just a songwriter/singer. Bob Dylan's songs, have, still, and always will tell the story of America. The good, the bad & the ugly of what our country has acheived and suffered through is what Bob Dylan tells you in his music. For over 50 yrs. Bob Dylan has asked and is still asking "how many roads must a man walk down before they call him a man".

Thats such a small house for $4,500,000. I've seen nicer houses in Malibu in that price range, it's not a compound. Why, just cause it has some gates? Its a normal house with a nice interior. It could be a $100k house after a $20k makeover, if it were in another state.
