Kim Kardashian, Kanye West reportedly put homes on market

Mrs. Carter: Are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ready to take the next step?

Even though the reality TV star is still technically married to NBA forward Kris Humphries, TMZ is reporting that she along with her rapper boyfriend have each put their Los Angeles homes on the market. The homes were placed under what is called a “pocket listing,” which keeps the sales relatively under the radar while also limiting the number of prospective buyers. (In other words, they don’t want just anyone checking out their pads.)

As for the reason behind the move, the couple (who have been dating for the past few months) are looking to move in to a private residence somewhere inside a gated community — one that they can rent for at least the time being. What conclusion do we draw from this? They want to see if they are compatible without rushing into anything, and if the relationship doesn’t work they can get out of the property without any further problems.

This cautious approach by Kim (who posted the photo on this article as a way to celebrate having two million followers on Instagram) likely comes after she was criticized heavily for marrying Humphries in a lavish (and nationally-televised) ceremony, only to file for divorce after 72 days, with the primary reason being that the two never really figured out what they wanted out of life before tying the knot.

What do you think about this move by Kim and Kanye? New episodes of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” will continue to air Sunday nights on E!.
