Over-leveraged idiot, thinks he wants to downsize but can't add up.
He has a $2.2M mortgage on a house he was offered $5.5M for at the auction. He has another oceanfront house down the road, with another $1M mortgage on it. He wants to sell off his stuff and reduce his debts and commitments, for health reasons (can do without the stress) and a simple life (that he can actually afford).
Why didn't he just accept the $5.5M, pay off both the mortgages, and live debt-free at the smaller house with cash in the bank to support a still very comfortable lifestyle? What a clown.
Still, at least he gets to keep the parrots.
