Sean Hannity has sold his sprawling waterfront estate on Long Island for $12.7 million — in an all-cash deal — to a devoted fan after an all-out bidding war.

Listing agent Shawn Elliott of Nest Seekers International revealed the news to the Wall Street Journal, marking a significant sale for the longtime Fox News star.

Hannity, who put the mansion on the market for $13.75 million in May, moved to Florida earlier this year.

Although Elliott kept the buyer’s identity under wraps, he confirmed that the new owner is a fan of Hannity’s work and even purchased the home’s furniture and library books, pushing the total sale price to more than $13 million. The deal was finalized on June 7.

“I think there was a little bit of a star factor,” Elliott told the Journal, adding that the buyer “got a great deal.”

According to Elliott, the property attracted four offers and went under contract within a week.

Hannity bought the waterfront property for $8.5 million in 2008 and invested several million dollars in renovations. The mansion, located about 40 miles east of Manhattan, features seven bedrooms and spans roughly 11,000 square feet.

In the luxury market, Elliott observed a surge in activity. “There’s such a limited amount of inventory right now and there’s tremendous demand,” he told the outlet. Hannity’s buyer offered cash and favorable terms, including a quick closing period. “Sean got a great buyer who wanted to close in 30 days,” he said.

Real estate data from Miller Samuel shows a 6.6% increase in sales on Nassau County’s North Shore in the first quarter, with the median sale price rising 24.1% year-over-year.

Hannity, who now broadcasts his radio show “The Sean Hannity Show” and his TV program “Hannity” from West Palm Beach, declared in January, “We are now beginning our first broadcast from my new home and that is in the free state of Florida. I am out. I am done.”

In 2021, Hannity purchased a condo in Palm Beach for $5.3 million, further solidifying his move to the Sunshine State.
