Mariah Carey and her husband, Nick Cannon, have popped their Bel-Air home back on the market at $12.995 million after a hiatus of more than a month. Their seriousness about finding a buyer this time around may be indicated by their choice of a listing agent who has been around the block, specifically their block, several times. Farrah Fawcett hired Paul Czako of Gussman Czako Estates to sell the then five-bedroom home in 1999 for close to $2.7 million, according to Times archives . The former “Charlie's Angels” star had owned the three-acre property for more than 20 years.
