Romney Beats Housing Slump

Who says there's a housing slump? Mitt Romney has sold two of his family’s four mansions this month. Earlier in April, he sold his family’s ski home in Deer Valley Resort, Utah to race-car driver Hal Prewitt. The home was 6,400 square feet and listed at $5.25 million. Then, this week, he sold the family’s Boston home—also 6,400 square feet with six bedrooms, 6.5 baths, a heated pool, and a clay tennis court—for $3.5 million. Bruce Reed at Slate comments, “Romney is the Madonna of American politics, constantly reinventing himself to meet the demands of a new era.”
