Pop star Jason Derulo finally sold his Coconut Creek mansion earlier this month for $1.9 million, making the single family house’s sale one of the highest ever in the Broward County city.
The Nov. 14 deal has yet to be recorded.
But Derulo, the singer of “Wiggle,” “Talk Dirty” and “Trumpets,” signed on the dotted line when out-of-state buyers offered just $50,000 less than the asking price, sight unseen.
“The buyers don’t want to be known, but they are not as famous as Jason,” said Realtor Alexander Goldstein, broker and CEO of Miles Goldstein Real Estate of Hollywood. “It’s a property with two acres of land, 11,000 square feet under air and seven bedrooms. There’s a good reason it’s the second most expensive house in Coconut Creek ever.”

Plus, says Goldstein, the house is across the street from the Adios Golf Club, a prestigious men-only club where women are allowed once a year for a few hours.
So, where’s Derulo going? Fret not, six-pack lovers. The singer is looking for some else a little closer to the beach.
Derulo bought the digs at 7555 NW 39th Ave. in 2012 for $1.75 million. It’s been on the market since April. At that time, it was listed for $2.25 million. The price change, Goldstein said, sparked the renewed interest in the two-story Mediterranean villa.
By the way, when vacant, the lot belonged to Miami Dolphins legend Dan Marino, who sold it a developer in 2006 for $575,000.
The deal made Marino look downright silly: He bought it in 2003 for $620,000 and, at this point, is the only guy who lost his shirt on the property.
