Former Chicago White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez in August took a loss on his five-bedroom, 2,400-square-foot contemporary-style town home in east Lincoln Park, selling it for $725,000, or more than $100,000 less than he had paid for it in 2011.
The Cuban-born Ramirez, 41, played for the Sox from 2008 until 2015. He played his final major league game the following year, and later played in the Mexican League.
In Lincoln Park, Ramirez paid $835,000 in 2011 for the eight-room town home, which was built in 1988 and has 3 ½ bathrooms and a private patio. The three-story town home also has a living room with a fireplace, an eat-in kitchen, a second-floor family room and a large primary bedroom suite with two walk-in closets and a whirlpool.
Ramirez, who now lives in Florida, first listed the town home in 2020 for $950,000. He cut his asking price later that year to $799,000 and then to just below $750,000 before increasing his asking price in October 2021 to $779,000. He then cut his price in June back to $749,900 before finding a buyer.
Listing agent Sergio Aguirre of Northlake Realtors declined to comment on the sale.
The town home had a $21,081 property tax bill in the 2021 tax year.
