Dennis Quaid Sells Pacific Palisades House For $3.315 Million (PHOTOS)

That was fast.

Not only did actor Dennis Quaid manage to sell his Pacific Palisades home in less than a month, but he also managed to pull off a tidy profit of 215,000 -- even though he just bought the property in February of this year.

Quaid and soon-to-be ex-wife Kimberly Buffington filed for divorce in Nov. 2012. The pair have 5-year-old twins together, and we guessed that when they bought the home in 2013 for $3.1 million, it was part of the spousal support agreement.

But by August, it was on the market again for $3.15 million, and Quaid and Buffington managed to sell for more than asking price; the deal closed Sept. 13 for $3.315 million.

Last we heard, they still plan to go through with their divorce, so we're chalking up this real estate fickleness to just another example of how separation can wreak havoc on a family's finances.

The property, located in a wealthy Westside community, has four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and about 3,400-square-feet of living space. The home has a gourmet kitchen and a master suite with a "spa-like bath and cozy sitting area," according to the official listing. Outdoors, there's a saltwater pool and spa (for those days when the ocean is a little too overwhelming, we guess). The property is gated and private.
