With the slowdown in the housing market, listed homes have lingered on the market for much longer than they might have in 2007, and sellers are frequently forced into chopping the price to get a quick sale. How does today's seller turn these sorry circumstances on their head? By being a celebrity, of course! Look, How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris just sold his updated three-bedroom home in Studio City for $1.535M, just $55K off the initial asking price. And when did the former Doogie Howser list his shingle spread? Why, a little over a month prior. With the negative reaction of Curbed LA commenters to the staging, it's easy to assume it was NPH's televised charm and good looks that got this place sold.
