As it turned out, Bruce Willis had been preparing for the deterioration of his health for some time. He began to sell his property in New York and beyond its borders beforehand.
To focus on life with his family in California, Willis gave up luxury real estate totaling $65 million.
A source close to the star said: “Bruce has been preparing for this moment for a long time. He knew that a time was approaching when his health would deteriorate and his earning power would not be as great as it used to be. He also knew that he wouldn’t end up needing multiple estates and apartments to travel between and that instead, he would need to live in a safe environment surrounded by his family.”
In 2018, Willis’ stately six-bedroom, 6,000-square-foot duplex in Central Park West, New York, sold for $17.75 million. In October of the same year, Bruce sold his mountain home in Sun Valley, Idaho, for $5.5 million.
In December 2019, Willis and his wife Emma Heming sold their estate in Westchester, N.Y., for $7.66 million. And they later parted with their compound in Turks and Caicos for $27 million.
