Six Prince houses to be sold
Six of Prince's former homes are to be sold.
Bremer Trust, the company overseeing the affairs of the late singer - who died from an overdose in April without leaving a will - had sought permission from a court to sell some of the 'Diamonds and Pearls' singer's real estate, and a judge has now agreed that some can be offloaded.
Judge Kevin Eide gave permission for six out of 15 properties on a list submitted by the company to be listed on August 26, once Prince's half-brother, Alfred Jackson, has had a chance to tour them, MPR News reports.
Most of the properties are situated in Prince's home town of Chanhassen, Minnesota and include houses, vacant lots and a small commercial building estimated to be worth around $44 million.
A 156-acre plot on the shores of Lakes Ann and Lucy has been valued at $13.7 million by the Carver County assessor's office.
The list also includes a property in the Turks and Caicos islands.
The judge ruled that the special administrators must submit another affidavit before listing another eight properties for sale.
The trust have withdrawn a request to sell a house in Golden Valley, after Omarr Baker - one of Prince's half-brothers - filed an objection.
Omarr previously explained he took care of his mother Mattie Shaw for several years until her death in 2002 in exchange for the right to live in the Minnesota property the late 'Purple Rain' hitmaker built for his mom for the rest of his life.
Bremer Trust previously confirmed they don't plan to sell Prince's famous Paisley Park complex.
They said in a statement: "Bremer Trust, the special administrator for the Prince Rogers Nelson estate, has no plans to sell either Paisley Park of the property referred to as the 'Purple Rain' house."
