Carson Palmer is one step closer to leaving Cincinnati.

In a story that will give some comfort to Ohio millionaires fretting the lingering effects of the recession, Palmer has reportedly sold his $2.1 million home in less than two months.

From Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer:

Carson Palmer’s house, which was put on the market in late March, took less than two months to find a buyer. Comey & Shepherd Realtors lists the Indian Hill property as under contract. The five-bedroom, two-story property in Indian Hill had an asking price of $2.1 million.

The house, made of stone and brick, sits on five acres and also features a gourmet kitchen, 5 1/2 bathrooms, solarium, swimming pool, spa, golf green and pond.

The real estate listing describes Palmer’s house “an exceptional home that exudes comfort, character and privacy.”

Palmer has threatened to retire if he’s not traded out of Cincy, and Marvin Lewis has hinted that the team might take a firm stance and let the eight-year veteran walk away. Either way, he has seemingly come to the realization that he won’t be residing in Southwest Ohio next fall.

Unless he wants to pay rent.
