Jose Canseco, the mercurial baseball star now turned steroid gossip king, has had his house foreclosed on after deciding to walk away from the home. Via the Associated Press:
Canseco told the syndicated TV show "Inside Edition" that he walked away from his $2.5 million, 7,300-square foot home in suburban Encino because it didn't make sense to continue making payments ... "What about other families that we're hearing on TV, that they're saying, `We have nowhere else to go,'" he said. "I mean, that is amazing. I've got books (he's put out two expose-type books on drug use in baseball), we're now trying to produce the movie to both. "Like I said, my situation was a little more different than most. I decided to just let it (the house) go, but in most cases and most families, they have nowhere else to go."
Looks like this walking away thing is hitting at least some of the upper end market. Interesting, no?
