Taylor Swift buys USD 17.7m house with cash
Singer Taylor Swift not only bought a Rhode Island mansion for over USD 17 million after driving a hard bargain, but also made a cash payment.
Swift was eyeing the mansion for a few weeks now, having toured the place back April 15. TMZ reports that real estate sources said that the asking price on the house, spread in 5.23 acres, was around USD 20 million, but Swift got it for USD 17.75 million.
Swift wired the money over and later movers were spotted at the house. It seems Taylor is better at closing the deal than others.
