According to a WENN story on the IMDb:
Actress Sharon Stone has fallen victim to the global credit crunch — she has put her luxurious Hollywood home up for sale at a loss.
The star bought her expansive Los Angeles mansion for $5.5 million in 2006, but has been forced to put the property on the market for a shocking $500,000 less than its original price, according to reports.
The U.S. real estate market has been driven into crisis mode since the worldwide credit crunch hit at the beginning of the year — seeing fuel and food prices soar, while the property market has slumped.
I don’t think it’s the real estate market. Rather, it’s all about karma.
