Carrie Underwood can afford any home she wants, but that wasn't the case just after she won 'American Idol' in 2005.

She and husband Mike Fisher just sold the 2,956 square foot house in Franklin, Tennessee that Carrie bought after winning 'Idol' in 2005.  She bought the house for $384,000 and took a loss selling it for $372,500.

I think they're ok, considering!  Carrie spent $1.3 million on another house in 2007 and then $3.2 million on land where the newlyweds built their current home.
