CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A home belonging to the late Cleveland Browns owner, Art Modell has a new homeowner.  

Remax believes it has reversed the curse on the Browns by selling Modell's huge estate in Waite Hill, OH in Lake County.  

In a controversial move that earned him the title of "Most Hated Man in Cleveland" from Browns fans, Modell relocated the team to Baltimore following the 1995 NFL season and renamed them the Ravens.

Modell purchased the Browns in 1961 for $4 million dollars. During his ownership, the team won 11 division titles and the 1964 NFL championship.

The Baltimore Ravens owner died in 2012.
