Ellen DeGeneres is quite the real estate mogul. Since 2005 she has purchased thirteen homes, flipping many of them. The most recent flip: a 1949 Los Angeles home called Brody House for which DeGeneres paid $40 million and sold to Napster founder Sean Parker months later for $55 million.
Her real estate conquests produce a more entertaining byproduct: funny real estate segments for her talk show. I’ve pulled together some of the funniest videos that highlight and poke fun at some of the situations in which you find yourself as a home buyer or seller.
