CORRECTION 12/3/13: A previous version of this post reported Howie Mandel sold his home for $7.75 million. The final sale price was $7 million.

This time around, Howie Mandel chose to say “deal.”

The host of “Deal or No Deal” recently sold his Malibu home for $7 million.

According to real estate agent Mike Gardner of Malibu Real Estate, Mandel learned quite a bit about brokering deals from his time on the show.

“Howie knew what price he wanted, held out for it, and got it … even if it took over two years,” Gardner wrote in a blog post.

In fact, Mandel was so confident about his Point Dume-area home, he raised the price by $500,000 in January — after 15 months on the market.

Located at 6950 Dume Dr, Malibu, CA 90265, the home was designed by architect Douglas Burdge to resemble a Nantucket-style estate with large windows and an indoor-outdoor living flow, all with incredible views of Santa Monica Bay. Inside, the 5-bedroom, 5.5-bath home is host to a number of details including hand-scraped wood floors, open beams and custom molding. The grounds include a large pool, grassy expanse and separate 1-bedroom, 1.5-bath pool/guesthouse.

Mandel bought the home for $3 million in July 2006 and completely rebuilt it in 2008. His price increase, notes Gardner, timed perfectly with a flurry of real estate activity in the Point Dume area. There are currently 453 homes on the market in Malibu, and the area is seeing a generous uptick in home values, increasing 29.3 percent year-over-year.

Mandel’s listing was held by Matt Rapf of Pritchett-Rapf & Assoc.
