Anna Kournikova Lists Miami Beach Home at $9.4 Million

Anna Kournikova Tennis star Anna Kournikova's 6,600-square-foot house in Miami Beach has volleyed onto the market with a price tag of $9.4 million.

The waterfront home on high-end Sunset Island has seven bedrooms. Typical of Sunset Island homes, great emphasis is placed on what's outside, which in this case is a heated pool and spa surrounded by a coral rock pool deck, a covered entertainment area, and an outdoor kitchen including barbecue. There is also a large dock on 156 feet of waterfront on Sunset Lake and a lush landscaping plan built around the large Royal Palms that surround the property.

The ivy-covered Mediterranean was built in 2000 and has French doors that lead out, hardwood floors throughout, high ceilings, arched windows, formal dining room and living room with a fireplace and a kitchen island with granite countertops. The property has a two-story guest house with a separate living space and kitchen on the first floor, and spacious suite on the second floor.

Kournikova, with Martina Hingis as her partner -- the Spice Girls of tennis -- won Grand Slam titles in 1999 and 2002.

The Russian-born tennis star has garnered attention for not just her play, but her stunning good looks and personal life as well. For years after her curtailment from the professional circuit, her name remained one of Google's most popular search terms.

The property is listed by Jill Eber and Jill Hertzberg, who partner under the name "The Jills" for Coldwell Banker Miami Beach.

Property sellers who want to both obtain their desired price and close on the deal quickly should consider seller financing. Seller financing is a powerful tool to remedy real estate situations that otherwise look grim.

Many home sellers (and their real estate agents) do not see seller financing as a viable option. In actuality, seller financing can bring new attention to the listing and invite a different group of potential buyers - thereby opening up a unique, untapped market.

A large percentage of people throughout the country cannot get approved for bank funding to buy real estate because of their credit situation. Many of these people are still in the market to buy a house, however. The "credit-challenged" are often frustrated with the limitations of apartment living or being renters; as a result, many are willing to pay a higher price just for a chance to get seller financing and improve their quality of life.

A savvy property seller who recognizes this opportunity can salvage an unfavorable situation and turn it into a bonafide seller's market. By using this type of creative financing, the seller could actually end up getting more than the original asking price - without resorting to the questionable strategy of patiently waiting for the "right buyer".

Seller finance can enable homeowners to receive a favorable selling price despite bad market conditions. In addition, the real estate agent (if any) gets to close a deal and move on to other sales, while a home buyer with poor credit is able to become a home owner. It's one of those rare situations where everyone at the negotiating table gets what they want.
