3) What/Where: Former LA Times Home of the Week in Hollywood Hills

The Skinny: After 135 days on the market, this home is down a cool $1.1 million. This three story Hills mansion is known as "Vista de la Maravilla" or in English, "The Drain on our Financial Resources." The home also features "Jetliner views to die for" which might be code words for someone jumped off the balcony and committed suicide. UPDATE: Representatives for the above property have asked us to clarify that the property is not literally a finacial drain on resources, nor have any confirmed suicides been known to have happened at this address.
