One more proof that ". .real estate is never boring" is that a realtor was likely the first of the viewing public to know that Michael Strahan had been chosen as Kelly Ripa's new co-host. How did such a thing happen? Because when he listed his Hermosa Beach, California digs, the media found out and the gossip columns came alive with the big question. Was this a sign that he was the chosen one? After a year of waiting through guest host after guest host, Michael's agent was probably one of the few people who knew for sure. Michael's home is priced at $1,819,000, and it looks like he already has a potential buyer.
