Donald Trump sold his luxury home at Mar-a-Lago in Florida just weeks before he was arrested in Atlanta in connection with the Georgia vote investigation. According to American media, the tycoon may have transferred his property to an organization owned by his eldest son Donald Junior, fearing judicial seizures. When he was president of the United States, Mar-a-Lago became the “White House” in the winter season.
According to Zilloë real estate listings, the resort was purchased on Aug. 4 for $422 million, weeks before the mogul turned himself in to Fulton County Jail in Georgia, where he was arrested Thursday and released on bail for trying to overturn the outcome of elections in 2020 in Georgia. But, according to The Express, the former president may not have “sold” the property, but simply transferred his property to his eldest son at 1100 S Ocean Boulevard in Palm Beach.
While the home is not listed by Zillo as “Mar-a-Lago,” the address matches that of Trump’s Palm Beach residence, as does its size. According to the site, the last time the property was sold was April 6, 1995, the exact same date the former president converted it into a mansion, which he bought in 1985 for $2 million. At the time, Zilloë reported that the residence was purchased for $12 million.
While Zilloë does not provide details on who bought the property, the SunBiz site says the current owner of Mar-a-Lago is a company called Mar-a-Lago Inc., owned by the former president’s eldest son.
