Here’s a real estate situation that could get ugly in Gainesville, Florida. The Internet is buzzing today over the listing of Urban Meyer’s $1.7mm (asking) house and house there is a massive sectional couch in that massive house. But the real focus should be whether Urban will get blackballed because he retired and then left for Ohio State a year later. Would rich Gators’ fans conspire and not buy this house? It is real pretty.
According to his listing agent:
This stunning custom designed for Coach Urban and Shelley Meyer and built by Tommy Waters home is conveniently located on a 2 acre lot in the Prestigious Haile Plantation’s only gated community. Impress your guest when you entertain in this elegant and functional home. Your success will show in every room of the Executive Home. This home is designed for true outdoor Florida living. The cook will appreciate the generous work space in the kitchen and you can’t help but smile in this light and bright floor plan. If you have a lot of stuff then you will appreciate all the space in the enormous garage and numerous closets/storage throughout this home.
But ask yourself, Gator fan, would you really want to sleep in the same bedroom as the guy who was Mr. SEC and would never dare leave the south for the hated Buckeyes? Can you bring yourself to sit on the same toilet as a traitor? Can you swim in that pool? Will it be too hard to ever watch an Ohio State game in that family room? All things to consider before plunking down the loot.

• Lots of built-ins to hold your Gators helmets
• 3-car garage

Mortgage: $10,500 (add on costs for pool boy, snake wranglers, etc.)
