Mercer Island mansion min bid now $12 million

Sheldon Good & Co alerted me last week that the Mediterranean Mansion that is up for auction now has a minimum bid of $12 million, down from $15 million.

From the brochure. My living room looks just like that!

They either have a bidder who wants to bid less than $15 million and are trying to draw our more, or they have yet to find a bidder. In any case, the mansion once listed for $40 million so if you’re interested, you can now get it at around 30% of that.
