Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have just sold their home in Los Angeles’ swanky neighborhood of Bel Air for $17.8 million—and given that they bought the six-bedroom, eight-bath mansion in 2013 for $9 million, you’d think this power couple were due serious props for doubling their money in a mere four years.

They could have made a ton more money
“I’d call this only a moderately successful sale,” says real estate agent Dolly Lenz, who has worked with Kardashian West. Although the couple likely didn’t lose money, they might have left a couple of million on the negotiation table.
