Affleck looked casual but a bit fatigued while rocking a red and gray flannel, gray pants and carried a heavy black backpack as he started his seemingly hectic week.
The same day, it was reported that the Argo star and the "Get Right" singer backed out of buying a $34 million house after they found another property for double the price in the same area for a whopping $64 million.
The new pad comes equipped with eight bedrooms, 11 baths, a media room, game room, a huge backyard, resort-style pool/spa all within 16,000 sq. feet to house Affleck's kids, Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and 10-year-old son Samuel, whom he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, as well as Lopez's 15-year-old twins, Emme and Max, whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
In the months after the Hollywood power couple tied the knot, the newly blended family has been living at Lopez's Bel-Air mansion, which they made sure to renovate, as the hunt for their dream home continued.

“JLo and Ben looked at so many houses but none of them felt like home to them,” an insider said of their search. “They were hoping to walk into a place and be floored and that just didn’t happen. The homes that they saw didn’t offer what they wanted and — although many of them were gorgeous homes — none of them really felt right."
"They are comfortable there and so are the kids. It held past memories for JLo, which is one of the reasons she wanted to leave in the first place," an insider explained. "But a fresh remodel and all new furniture, as well as an addition and an expansion of the master bedroom to accommodate both of them, is going to allow them to feel like they are having a fresh start in their dream home."
