Nowadays, it’s easier than ever to become incredibly envious of people who make more money in a single year than you’ll probably ever see in your life thanks to the easily accessible real estate porn available on the internet.

I can’t count the number of times professional athletes have made me feel bad about myself in the past year alone, whether we’re talking about Derek Jeter’s giant castle, the sick oceanfront mansion Kevin Durant recently put on the market, or the massive Seattle estate Shawn Kemp decided to unload.
