House Michael Jackson died in is nearing sale
The house where Michael Jackson died has attracted a buyer.
A Los Angeles businessman has written an offer for around $17 million for the Holmby Hills estate but the property is listed for $23.9 million.
Real estate sources told TMZ that the buyer - who has been trying to sell the home for three years - and the seller are in the process of negotiating to see if they can come to a reasonable agreement.
The insiders insist that the businessman who made the offer 'couldn't care less' that Michael lived there before passing away in his bedroom in June 2009, after a self-administered dose of the prescription drug Propofol.
The owner has had problems selling the house in the past, to some extent because it has been popular with tourists eager to view the famous estate.
Mauricio Umansky - who is married to 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Kyle Richards - is controlling the listing for the house which was rented by Michael.
Some of Jackson's furniture and personal art from the rental property was sold for a combined total of almost $1 million last December.
