Potential Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is considering selling his La Jolla home, according to a Boston newspaper.

An aide to the former Massachusetts governor told The Boston Globe earlier this week that Romney is taking steps to shed some of his property, and has retained a broker to show the La Jolla property.

The U-T San Diego said an attorney representing Romney confirmed that the home at 311 Dunemere is being shown. It was purchased for $12 million in 2008 and is undergoing a complete renovation.

Both the Globe and the U-T reported that the Romney family has not made a firm decision to sell the home.

Romney’s last presidential bid was hurt by an image of privilege and wealth and perceived insensitivity to low-income Americans.
