FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Former teen idol David Cassidy's Fort Lauderdale home is under contract for $1.8 million.

The Sun Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1JUILol ) reports the 7,000-square-foot waterfront home was auctioned Wednesday by Fisher Auction Co. There were four bidders.

The deal must be approved by a judge next week.

Cassidy filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy case earlier this year. He purchased the house in 2001 for $1.1 million. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom house was appraised at $1.9 million.

The 65-year-old Cassidy starred in "The Partridge Family" television show.

Real estate agent Andrea Harrington of Century 21 Hansen Realty says her client submitted the highest bid and will likely rent it before reselling it.

Bidders had to make a $200,000 escrow payment and prove they had at least $3 million to spend.

Cassidy did not attend.
