The Miami area has consistently been home to a number of A-listers, ranging from Rosie O’Donnell and Billy Joel to Cher and Ricky Martin. However, those four have sold, and others — including Shakira, Celine Dion and Matt Damon, are now in the process of selling. Where they are going and why are they selling is anyone’s guess.

Damon just sweetened his listing for potential buyers by recently cutting the price of his Miami home by the odd sum of a million and one thousand dollars, bringing the price tag from $20 million down to $18.999 million.

The Oscar-winning screenwriter and actor bought two parcels in 2005, one for $10.3 million and another for $4.2 million, to create his custom compound, reported the Wall Street Journal. The home is situated within the La Gorce neighborhood on N Bay Road, where Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez and Calvin Klein also once owned homes.

Constructed in a Mediterranean style, the 12,705-square-foot home sits on a little over half an acre with 1,750 feet of waterfront access on Biscayne Bay. The property has a pool house with full kitchen and rooftop terrace, as well as a guest house. The two-story main house boasts 7 bedrooms, 10 baths, a home theater, gourmet kitchen, and master suite with private, ocean-facing terrace.

Damon currently lives in Pacific Palisades, where he bought a house less than a mile away from his actor-buddy Ben Affleck. He paid $15 million in late spring of 2012.

The listing is held by The Jills, Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber of Coldwell Banker Previews International.
