At the dawn of his NBA career, Russell Westbrook made a smart off-court move and purchased a starter home. Eleven years later, the eight-time All-Star is now looking to dish the modest house in Edmond, OK, to a buyer for $429,500.

By baller standards, the Edmond home is a far cry from where the Houston Rockets point guard lives now, a multimillion-dollar Brentwood, CA, mansion, near neighbor LeBron James. He also owns a much larger Oklahoma home he purchased in 2012.

Even a decade ago, Westbrook had a keen eye for real estate.

He purchased this place in 2008 for $383,500, just months after joining the Oklahoma City Thunder. The suburban abode measures 3,011 square feet and has three bedrooms and 2.5 baths.

Boasting an updated interior, the traditional-style home comes features an open layout and neutral palette.

The remodeled kitchen and bathrooms have quartz counters. The living room is lined with large windows, and the kitchen comes with a breakfast nook. Adjoining the kitchen is a family room, which opens out to the backyard.

Out back, the quarter-acre lot features a grill, a fire pit, and a pool with two basketball hoops and a waterfall.

Westbrook has been making headlines in real estate of late. He recently lowered the price of his Beverly Hills, CA, home from $6 million to $5.69 million. The Southern California native bought the luxury abode in 2015 for $4.65 million from reality TV star Scott Disick, according to the Los Angeles Times. 

Westbrook recently upgraded to a brand-new $19.75 million, 9,000-square-foot compound on a half-acre with a 38-foot lap pool in posh Brentwood, according to the Times.

Now 30, Westbrook starred for the Thunder for 11 seasons until being traded to the Rockets this summer. The 2016-17 MVP led the league in scoring in 2014–15 and 2016–17.
