According to online news sources, the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office has announced that it will sell the rapper’s home for failure to pay a $375,000 writ on the home owed to Flagstar Bank. Lil Boosie, real name Torence Hatch, remains imprisoned awaiting his murder trial. This home was purchased in 10/2007 for $547,731, which at that time was an incredibly high price for a home in Centurion Place. Before Boosie paid $547,731 for this home, it had been on the market for 473 days, which should have been an indication this home was greatly overpriced. Currently in GBRMLS, this home was listed for $499,000 on 9/16/2010, reduced to $399,000 on 2/15/2011 and was pending as of 3/4/2011 after 170 days on the market. I guess that since this home has been pending now for over 2 months, the East Baton Rouge Parish authorities don’t see an indication that this home will close in time for the auction, not exactly sure.

One local Real Estate Agent desribed this home this way,
“Spectacular home offering something for everyone. The unique floor plan offers options for just about everyone with its multifunctional floor plan. Upon entering the home you’ll be impressed with the huge doors leading to the beautiful foyer area with formal dining to the right and a study/living room to the left. A private entrance from the study into a large bedroom complimented with a luxurious bath features a Jacuzzi tub and oversized shower creating a fabulous split bedroom arrangement or could function as a separate living area for a parent, etc. It also affords an entry into the great room as does front foyer. You’ll be wowed by the beautiful oak flooring in the den, dining and sitting areas as well as the double sided FP which can be enjoyed from the kitchen/breakfast area as well. Varied ceiling heights, solid wood doors, glass transoms, brick wall in kitchen, granite counters, oversize island, wine cooler, gas stove, solid red oak cabinets w/raised panels, an enviable master suite w/a huge walk-in closet, an adjoining office/nursery, master bath w/6′ Jacuzzi tub, oversize shower w/rainfall shower head, custom his/her porcelain sinks w/furniture style vanities.
