Celebrities Who Bought Homes Recently: Bieber, Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Aniston and More

- — When they weren't tied up with filming television shows, jet-setting between cities on music tours or starring in a new movie, these A-listers were busy hunting for new real estate. Quite a few stars — think Ashton, Jennifer and even the Biebs — made significant home purchases the past few months. Were they possibly taking advantage of historically low interest rates? Or are these stories just examples of this year's home shopping season?

Ashton Kutcher

Last listing price: $10.8 million

Purchase price: Unknown

Details: 5 beds, 8 baths, 9,385 square feet

Forget the traditional Mediterranean or California ranch-style home ubiquitous in L.A. When Ashton Kutcher decided to buy a new place for his life post-Demi Moore, he chose a stunning modern with views of Lake Hollywood from its retractable glass walls. Kutcher had been renting the place when teen pop star Justin Bieber inquired about buying the place. When Kutcher found out, he put an offer on the Hollywood Hills home, showing The Biebs how the big dogs run in Tinseltown.

Justin Bieber

Last listing price: $5.95 million

Purchase price: $5.15 million

Details: 7 beds, 8 baths, 10,012 square feet

When the teen singer heard that Ashton Kutcher had scooped him on the modern home in Hollywood Hills, Bieber set his sights on an entirely different property: An enormous, more traditional-styled home in Calabasas. Set outside the buzz and paparazzi of Beverly Hills, Calabasas is home to serious privacy-seeking stars like Britney Spears and Steven Spielberg. However Bieber's new home purchase has not gone as smoothly as one would expect for someone with his wealth. The 7-bed, 8-bath home was appraised low and the singer is waiting on that to be ironed out before he and his entourage can officially move in.

Jennifer Aniston

Last listing price: $24.9 million

Purchase price: $20.97 million
