A Minnesota judge has granted the administrator of Prince’s estate the green light to sell six of the late artist’s properties.
Carver County Judge Kevin Eide granted the trust approval to list the properties, which include homes, vacant lots and buildings in Prince’s hometown of Chanhassen, a suburb of Minneapolis.
The list comprises a commercial building estimated at $22 million and a 156-acre piece of land in Lakes Ann and Lucy valued at $13.7 million.
Prince Estate Denies Plan to Sell Paisley Park
Prince’s house and recording studio Paisley Park isn’t among the 15 properties to be liquidated, as expected. Bremer Trust, which is handling the late performer’s affairs, recently confirmed it “ has no plans to sell either Paisley Park or the property referred to as the Purple Rain house.”
Judge Eide said the estate administrators may list the six properties on Aug. 26, once Prince’s half-brother Alfred Jackson had the opportunity to tour them, according to Minnesota Public Radio News.
Before listing the sale of the remaining eight properties the estate must subsequently submit another affidavit.
Prince was found dead in his Minnesota house on the morning of April 21. He was 57. The iconic musician died of an opioid overdose, toxicology tests later shown, and he apparently did not leave a will.
