Fox News star Sean Hannity has made a life-changing move after becoming fed up with his home state of New York. Hannity has sold his multi-million dollar mansion and has moved to Florida.

After declaring himself “done” with the state of New York, Hannity, 62, has sold his Long Island estate for an impressive $12.7 million, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. A bidding war on the waterfront property drove up the value of the 11,000-square-foot estate. According to listing agent Shawn Elliott of Nest Seekers International, the buyer, a fan of Hannity, also purchased the estate’s furniture. “I think there was a little bit of a star factor,” Elliott told the outlet, adding that the buyer “got a great deal.”

It’s “a new record for the fastest home sale over $10 million in the area,” he said. “We do whatever it takes to get the house sold for the most money in the least amount of time with the absolute best terms.” The sale netted Hannity approximately a 33% appreciation since he first purchased the Oyster Bay property for $8.7 million in 2008.

According to the Wall Street Journal, personal amenities include a par-3 golf course, a private dock, and a resort-style swimming pool, some of which Hannity has improved over the years. Located just 40 minutes from Manhattan, Hannity will soon be far from his studio of 15 years. According to Realtor.com, the Fox News anchor has already purchased a 3,800-square-foot townhome in Palm Beach, Florida, featuring a waterfront view. The price tag? A cool $5.3 million — and no state income tax to boot.

“We are now beginning our first broadcast from my new home, and that is in the free state of Florida,” Hannity stated on his daily radio show in January. “I am out. I am done. I am finished in New York.” The move has meant that Hannity had to rebuild his home studio from scratch, though he mentioned that he “feels a lot better” about leaving the Big Apple and its myriad problems behind.

Additionally, swapping liberal politicians like New York’s Governor Kathy Hochul and Mayor Eric Adams for Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis ensures that Hannity’s representatives will share his conservative values.

“And finally for the first time that I can think of in my adult life, I actually have representatives in the state that I’m living in that share my values,” Hannity said. “And if anything, I’m probably late and behind the curve, and many others have made the move beforehand, and there’s not a single person that I know that made a move like this that is not happy that they’ve made it,” he said.

Among his reasons for moving, the 27-year Fox veteran cited “burdensome regulation, high crime, and horrible school districts” as factors driving Americans to flee deep-blue states. Between 2021 and 2022, Illinois, California, and New York — all Democratic strongholds — each lost more than 100,000 residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In 2023, California, which has the highest sales and income taxes in the country, lost an additional 75,000 residents.
