Selling your home during the coronavirus pandemic is tricky, as The Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco found out when she recently sold her luxury celebrity home at a loss of over $4million. Ouch.
The 34-year-old actress, most known for playing beautiful 'girl next door' Penny, first listed her stunning Californian home in May last year for $6.9million (£5.6million).
Yet after just three months, she had to cut the asking price by $2million and it only sold once the price came down to $2.9million (£2.4million) - a drop of over 40 per cent from what it was originally listed at.
The six-bedroom, nine-bathroom home was decorated by designer Jeff Andrews, for previous owner Khloe Kardashian.
In an interview for a book called 'The New Glamour', Kaley said: "I fell in love with the house but also everything that came with it. The interior decoration, the furniture, the art - I wanted it all!"
The mediterranean mansion measures of 8,000 square feet and features a movie theatre, a huge chef's kitchen, living and dining rooms and a lavish master suite with three walk-in closets. Because having just two closets would be silly.
It took nearly a year to sell the Californian home, which comes as Kaley moves in with her husband Karl Cook, who she married almost two years ago in June 2018.
The couple had been living apart due to busy work schedules,which meant they were always travelling.
Speaking on her Instagram account before boarding a flight to LA, Kaley said: "I get to fly home...and I get to walk into my new house and meet Karl there, meet the dogs there, live in our house, cook in our house.
"I feel really blessed and lucky that we get to go home and have this time together and move in and enjoy our brand new home together."
"Actually Karl has been at home and I said 'Why don't you go and stay at the house?' but he's waiting for me to get there and have all the animals there."
Joking at the controversy surrounding their living arrangements, Cuoco added: "We're going steady; he gave me his letterman jacket, we're moving in together. I know. Everyone was like so crazed that we didn't live together, they couldn't believe.
"I was like, 'I don't know', didn't understand it. Everyone has an opinion."
