Kelly and Aimee Osbourne are selling their neighbouring West Hollywood homes at a loss.

The sisters have only lived next door to each other since July, when Kelly bought the house next door to Aimee for $2M.

The elder Osbourne bought her three bed, three bath house on the Sunset Strip back in 2007 for $2.3M.

But now the girls have both listed their properties for less than they bought them for, at $1.9M each.

As clearly evidenced by the photographs, the girls had been halfway through remodeling the houses when they appear to have decided to give up.

‘Both are being sold as unfinished projects, as-is,’ the listing advises. ‘Sellers plans have changed and project halted.’

this may explain the lower price tags in such a highly sough area; the listings website claims the average house price in the surrounding Hollywood Hills is $3.4M.

Kelly’s property is the slightly larger of the two, sitting on 11K sqft compared to Aimee’s 10K, although Aimee’s has an extra half bathroom.

Aimee meanwhile stands to lose $360K off the price she paid for it, while her little sister will only come out $1K in the red.

Both houses have a ‘wonderful’ pool, spa, and two car garage, with open patios, hardwood floors and wood-burning fireplaces.

And judging by the before and after pictures, they used to have a lot more furnishings in them too before the girls gutted them.

The two house can be purchased separately or as one lot, as long as potential buyers can stump up proof of funds by April 6.
