Former Chicago White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez in August suffered a loss on his five-bedroom, 2,400-square-foot contemporary-style townhouse in east Lincoln Park, selling it for $725,000, more than $100,000 less than what he paid in 2011.
Cuban Ramirez, 41, played for the Sox from 2008 to 2015. He played his last major league game the following year and then played in the Mexican League.
In Lincoln Park, Ramirez paid $835,000 in 2011 for the eight-room townhouse, which was built in 1988 and has 3½ bathrooms and a private patio. The three-story townhouse also features a living room with fireplace, kitchen with dining area, second-story family room, and large master bedroom with two closets and a whirlpool tub.
Ramirez, who now lives in Florida, first listed the townhouse in 2020 for $950,000. He reduced his asking price later that year to $799,000, then to just under $750,000 before raising his asking price in October 2021 to $779,000. It then reduced its price in June to $749,900 before finding a buyer.
Listing agent Sergio Aguirre of Northlake Realtors declined to comment on the sale.
The townhouse had a property tax bill of $21,081 in the 2021 tax year.
