Price chops: Former NBA star Chris Webber poised for a loss in Malibu

Chris Webber asks $3.65 million for Malibu home, $100,000 less than what the ex-NBA star paid for it in '07
Vicki Gunvalson of 'Real Housewives of Orange County' fame has cut $200,000 off price of her Coto de Caza home
Jody Foster is asking $5.6 million for her Hollywood Hills West home, down from $5.75 million in March

With its designer interiors and 180-degree views of the Malibu coastline, the sale of Chris Webber’s modern home seemed like all but a slam dunk when the residence listed in February at nearly $4 million. But after more than five months on the market, the retired basketball star turned sports analyst has apparently lowered his expectations.

The house, found in the Big Rock neighborhood, now lists for $3.65 million -- $100,000 less than what the former Michigan Fab Five member and five-time NBA All-Star paid for the property in 2007, public records show. Set on nearly three acres, it features an office, a library/study, a lap pool, a spa and a large outdoor sunning area on nearly three-quarters of an acre.

Ellen Francisco of Coldwell Banker is the listing agent.

Real Housewife of OC trims down

Vicki Gunvalson of “Real Housewives of Orange County” fame has trimmed $200,000 off the asking price for her home in Coto de Caza. Originally listed for sale in July at nearly $2.9 million, the one-acre property now asks $2.699 million.

Set in a guard-gated community, the home is ready for reality television with large entertaining areas, a formal dining room and a chef’s kitchen. Among its features are a master retreat with a two-way fireplace and a lagoon-style pool with a waterfall, slide, spa and grotto seating.

John Russell and Flo Bullock of Keller Williams Realty have the listing.

Jodie Foster reloads, relists in Birds Streets

Making a return to the Multiple Listing Service last month was the Hollywood Hills West home of Academy Award-winning actress Jodie Foster. Foster is now asking $5.6 million for the relaxed Spanish-style residence, down from $5.75 million in March.

Found in the celebrity-popular Bird Streets neighborhood, the home features sunlit interiors with cathedral ceilings, hardwood flooring and exposed beams. A cook’s kitchen, theater room, tiered gardens and a pool are among the features.

The property had been listed for as much as $6.399 million last year. Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency holds the listing.

Pete Rose pitches discount in Sherman Oaks

Retired baseball player and manager Pete Rose has adjusted the price on his home in Sherman Oaks. Listed for sale at $2.15 million in October, the former Cincinnati Reds star is now asking $1.975 million for the 4,719-square-foot house.

Set on a quarter-acre, the Mediterranean-style home sports vaulted interiors with a grand foyer, skylights, six bedrooms and five bathrooms. Outdoors, a covered patio and multiuse structure sits adjacent to a pool and spa.
