Kris Jenner is pretty good at making money. But her association with a certain real estate venture Keeping Up With the Kardashians didn’t exactly go as planned. The home that was staged for her was finally sold but it took over a decade and the price is much lower than the first listing. So how much did the real owners make from selling the home? Here is everything you need to know.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians home was on the market for 11 years and only the exterior was used on the show
Apparently, it was a bit of a struggle to sell the home because it was on the market for 11 years. The home was used to film Keeping Up With the Kardashians, however, the inside wasn’t shown for a specific reason.
“When we film inside, that’s obviously our real home,” Kim Kardashian said according to OK! when the family was accused of filming in fake homes. “My old home in Beverly Hills was really my home and I would get people showing up at all hours ringing my gate and had to call the police on several occasions.”
It’s probably not shocking that the family uses multiple homes to film their show considering they have had problems with stalkers and Kim Kardashian was robbed. So the exteriors were faked by using other houses including the one that was just sold.
The family also never lived in this specific home. It was used as a stand-in for Kris Jenner’s house and it was also used for other shows like Chelsea Lately, True Blood and American Horror Story. So how much did the reality show home go for?
The home sold for $5.25 million

The stand-in house is 7,843-square-foot with seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a chef’s kitchen, wine cellar, outdoor kitchen, and screening room. The home is officially off the market after being sold for $5.25 million, according to TMZ.
It was first on the market in 2007 and the price kept going down. According to People, it was previously listed for $12 million in 2007, then $7.8 million with Brandon Assanti of Rodeo Realty Beverly Hills, then $6.495 million. In the end, the property went through 19 agents and 9 brokerages before it sold.
An official reason for why it was so hard to sell was unknown. But the same reason why the reality show family use other houses for exterior shots due to security could probably be the reason why. According to House Beautiful, one of the listings made note that it is “totally different than [the] last time on [the] market.”
So not everything on Keeping Up With the Kardashians is completely real. It should be interesting to see if owners will run into the same problem if they sell the other real estate properties that were used for the show.
