Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe Wrap Up Real Estate Marital Matters

Phillippe and Witherspoon DuplexEven seven years after the divorce, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe are still wrapping up their marital matters. But, at least this one yielded a little payback.

The two just made a little extra cash after parting ways with an investment property the duo shared when they were married. The couple originally purchased the Los Angeles duplex back in October of 2005 for a little over $1 million. The home includes four bedrooms, four baths, and was built in 1938. With a little TLC and some remodeling, the Los Angeles duplex sold this January for $1.44 million, leaving the stars with a bit of a profit.

The “Legally Blonde” star and Phillippe got hitched back in 1999, but after seven years of marriage, the two decided to split. And while they no longer share the two-unit L.A. estate, they do share two children, Ave and Deacon. Hopefully the divorced duo can amicably share their financial gains from the sale of their duplex.

But, not all is fair in love and real estate.

Maybe the couple would have had more luck in the marriage department had they consulted with Andrea Syrtash, relationship expert and author of several books including “He’s Just Not That Your Type, (And That’s a Good Thing).” The author was recently featured on the Redfin blog, giving tips and advice on how to go about the home buying experience with your one and only.
