A Carver County judge on Thursday gave the trust overseeing Prince's assets approval to sell some of the late pop star's real estate.

Prince's Paisley Park complex is not on the list of 15 properties estate managers want to liquidate.

Most of the properties are in Prince's home town of Chanhassen and include homes, vacant lots, and a small commercial building estimated to be worth $22 million.

The priciest is a 156-acre plot on the shores of Lakes Ann and Lucy that the Carver County assessor's office values at $13.7 million.

The list also includes an unspecified property in the Turks and Caicos islands.

Judge Kevin Eide said Bremer Trust — which is managing the musician's affairs for now — may list the first six properties on August 26, once Prince's half brother Alfred Jackson has a chance to tour them. Eide says estate administrators must submit another affidavit before listing the sale of the remaining eight parcels.

According to Eide's order, the trust withdrew a request to sell a home in Golden Valley after Omarr Baker, another Prince half brother who lives there, filed an objection.
