Were you looking to get a piece of movie history when the "Home Alone" house went on sale, but couldn't afford it?

Well, you might be one step close, because the price has gone down.

The 4,250-square-foot, 14-room Winnetka home was placed on the market last month for $2.4 million. The owners said they hoped the on-screen fame from the 1990 hit movie would make it sell faster even in a down housing market.

On the market for more than a month, the house isn't sold and the price was reduced to $2.175 million, $225,000 less than the original asking price, according to Curbed Chicago.

The current owners of the house bought it for $875,000 in 1988 and have lived there since.
