Home Foreclosure

In 2009, ahead of Jannero's second stint with the Chicago Bulls, the Pargos paid $2.24 million for a French-style chateau in Riverwoods, Illinois.

Unfortunately, they lost the home to foreclosure the following year. Their bank took possession of the home and subsequently listed it for $1.75 million. After several price chops, the home sold for $1.375 million in September 2016.
