Lance Bass Feels “Heartbroken” After Losing Brady Bunch House
When the iconic Brady Bunch house listed last month, it caught the eye of fans and real estate lovers everywhere. *NSYNC member Lance Bass was so taken by it that he made an offer on the Studio City ranch for “way over the asking price,” which is $1.885 million. The race to own the piece of TV history was on, and other celebrities like Property Brothers star Jonathon Silver Scott were making tough bids as well. On Friday, the singer was elated to announce on Twitter that he made the winning offer, but soon after everything changed.
Super excited to announce they accepted my offer on the #BradyBunch house last night!!! This is going to be a fun project!— Lance Bass (@LanceBass) August 3, 2018

According to a lengthy and sincere Instagram post, Bass claims that a day later after the deadline for all offers had passed, the same agent who had brought him immense joy by telling him his offer was accepted reached out to inform him that a corporate buyer wanted the house at any cost. Although Bass tried to compete, there was no price the company, which his post calls a “Hollywood studio,” could not match.
Ultimately, Bass’ dreams were dashed and he was left feeling like a pawn in a game of real estate chess. One of his final statements reads, “I feel used but most importantly I’m hurt and saddened by this highly questionable outcome. I just hope it is not demolished.” A hope many share, no doubt.
Ernie Carswell and Spencer Daley of Douglas Elliman have the listing, which is still shown as active as of now.
Marcia Marcia Marcia! Im feeling heartbroken today. As many of you may have heard, we placed the winning bid on the iconic Brady Bunch house—at least that’s what we were told. The agent representing the estate informed us we made the winning bid (which was WAY over the asking price) after the final deadline for all offers had passed—even writing up the “winning bid” for my team after informing me of the good news. Isn’t a deadline a deadline? This was a dream come true for me and I spent the night celebrating amongst friends, family, and fans alike. The next day, due to “unforeseen circumstances” the same agent informed us that there’s another Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio) who wants the house at any cost. We were prepared to go even higher but totally discouraged by the sellers agent, they will outperform any bid with unlimited resources. How is this fair or legal?? How can I compete with a billion dollar corporate entity? I truly believe I was used to drive up the price of the home knowing very well that this corporation intended on making their offer and it’s not a good feeling. I feel used but most importantly I’m hurt and saddened by this highly questionable outcome. I just hope it is not demolished. Thanks for all the love and support. #CrushedDream #ShadyAF #DouglasElliman #ShadyBrady To make me happier you can register and vote November 6th!
