If you (like us) were one of the many people helping out Washington Redskins’ quarterback Robert Griffin III by buying him a gift in advance of his July wedding to Rebecca Liddicoat, it may interest you that RG III is shelling out $500,000 per bedroom on a house in which he can put all the stuff we bought for him.
According to the Washington Business Journal, Griffin paid $2.5 million for a five-bedroom home in the tony Creighton Farms golf course community in Aldie, Va.
Griffin’s new home rests next to a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, in a community with a pool, fitness center and tennis courts. For you amateur economists looking for proof of the housing recovery, the home last sold for $850,000 in 2007.
