In the market for a multi-million dollar house that is currently owned by a professional athlete and the house must have a cool pool? Sure you aren't, but it's not a crime to look. Maybe you work at Facebook and need a house near San Francisco? Barry Zito is trying to sell a mountainside retreat with what has to be the best pool view in athlete houses currently on the market: $11.45M. Looking for a grotto? You can buy Devin Harris' house: $2.1M. More - JUMP!
Have you been in the market for a giant house on three acres in the Louisville zip code and just can't find that perfect house? Rick Pitino has a house to sell that might be the perfect fit. Ignore the gaudy furniture and weird draperies. Focus on the pool with insane stonework and the man cave where you can impress your friends with tales of buying Rick Pitino's house. JUMP!
Little late on this one only because most people don't really care about Greg Schiano or the house he's trying to sell in New Jersey since he'll be spending the next 3-5 years in Tampa. Is there a more uninteresting NFL hire like Schiano in the last 5 years besides Dick Jauron in Buffalo? Ok, Romeo Crennel needs to be in the same breath. Anyway, Schiano is selling his N.J. dump but let's all focus on Greg's couch collection. JUMP!
Remember how everyone was laughing at Troy Aikman last year when he listed his Dallas mansion for $24,000,000? "Ridiculous asking price. He's nuts. Never going to sell that place." Blah, blah, blah. Guess who's now selling his house for $14,000,000 and the adjacent .90 acres of land for $11,500,000? That's right, Aikman. According to Dallas real estate expert Candy Evans, someone is interested in that .90 acres. Who's laughing now, punks? JUMP!
And the hits keep coming for Bobby Petrino. His phone records are in the public domain and now we learn from Friends of the Program that the Petrino house in Fayetteville is for sale. Let's just say this isn't the house you sell because you plan on buying bigger. It's your forever house. The kind of house an SEC coach purchases with no intentions of leaving for a long, long time. The bad news is that Bobby won't be needing it. Take a tour! JUMP!
Who's in the mood to drop between $595,000 & $19,800,000 on a house these days? Are you a baseball junkie who wants to live in a house where your hero has slept? If you're in the market for a new pad and have the money, we suggest these 12 homes that need a buyer. Help these cash strapped former & current millionaires get out from under houses such as Adrian Beltre & his 15 bath mansion. Here is the ultimate piece of memorabilia. JUMP!
Seems kinda odd that Scott Skiles, head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, would put this massive house on the market in late February. His team is 13-20, but he's under contract through the '12-13 season. Is he just tired of the 4,700 sq. ft. of spaciousness? Is he just downsizing to a 2,500 sq. ft. pad to cut down on window cleaning? Skiles doesn't seem to be a dumb guy. Dude won't need this place in about 8 months. JUMP!
Normally we wouldn't waste our time posting about real estate belonging to NFL QBs with 10 career wins and located in Buffalo. But this is the Georgianstyle House belonging to J.P. Losman, a guy who probably doesn't need to be hanging around Buffalo the rest of his life. This isn't even a standalone house. J.P. was living in a mansion split into three homes. No, we're serious. JUMP!
Former major leaguer and injury risk Eric Davis is dumping his Los Angeles home, presumably because he's spending most of his time in Cincinnati. The two-time All Star, who made his name with the Reds, now works in the team's front office, so he probably has no need for this pad anymore. It can be all yours for a little over $2 million and it comes with a basketball court. Or at least half of one. Check it!
Washington Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin has a new pad and, well... we're not all that impressed. The joint is big, that's for sure. It cost a lot of money -- $4.2 million to be exact. There's nothing terribly special about it, though. First of all, it's in Virginia. Second of all, it has none of the stupid, garish things athletes have in their homes. Not even a pool. The coolest thing here is Ovechkin's giant deck. Take a look for yourself.
Via: Police received a call that an "inflatable Patriots guy" was stolen from a Derby Street lawn. The caller said an unknown person took a three-foot inflatable player valued at $75 from the front of the home. Police said there were no suspects. This is why we always warn people to put their address on the shin of inflatable Patriots guys. You think a thief will put that in his front yard? No way. Gonna drive right by your house. Lesson learned.
Call him a jerkoff all you want. If there's one thing that's becoming apparent with the wallet of ARod, it's that the dude doesn't plan on going broke anytime soon. What's he been up to this offseason, besides pumping iron with WWE Diva Torrie Wilson? Oh, just flipping his NYC Riverside Drive penthouse for a healthy profit. Numbers weren't disclosed (until tax records are filed) but figure he didn't take less than $7.5mm This guy is going to be wiping his ass with $100 bills for years! JUMP!
The fine folks at Realtor.com have been updating some of the athlete houses that are on the market, or STILL on the market and besides Joe Montana's $35,000,000 pad, Jake Plummer's place sticks out. The Snake has been trying to unload this dump since 2009 and has dropped the price by $1.6mm since. Nope, no luck. Not even Baby Jesus is splurging on this place with the comma-shaped pool. Take a peak & buy it. JUMP!
Back in 2009, Joe Montana made big news when he put his 500-acre Northern California spread on the housing market with an asking price of $49,000,000. Unique price, eh? Flash-forward to 2012 and Montana is still trying to sell that house. New price: $35,000,000. What changed with the house in three years to drop the price $14mm? Gophers? Bad olive crop? Windstorm took out trees? None of those, from what we can tell. JUMP!
The Juice is loose! Or at least his Florida home is. Wife killer, kidnapper and former Buffalo Bills running back O.J. Simpson is in foreclosure. The bank decided to take away Simpson's Miami home, which he won't be needing anytime soon anyway, because he owes them more than $700,000. It's really too bad when such a swell guy happens upon misfortune. Although maybe he could repay the bank in cigarettes. Here are the details. Check it!
There's one of two things going on with John Smoltz right now: (a.) He's getting bored with his 18,000 sq. ft. Georgia house on a golf course, or (b.) his ass is leaking cash. See, there was news in 2011 that Smoltz had some trouble with real estate in Wyoming where he went through a "strategic foreclosure." That brings us to the news that Smoltzy has put this gigantic f-you pad on the market for only $7.2mm. Dude made $135mm in his career. Something is going on here. JUMP!
Who knew big, tough, quarterback-sacking linebackers liked pastels this much? Certainly not us. Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware's Dallas home is on the market for a little over $2 million. Normally, we're amazed by the cool features, awesome rooms and vast size of athletes' homes. With Ware's, we're just amazed by the amount of pastels on the inside. It's completely nauseating. Take a look for yourself. Check it!
Fred Couples may not be what he used to on the golf course these days, but he seems to be doing alright on the real estate market. Couples is putting his La Quinta, California villa on the market only two years after he bought it. Oh, and he stands to make more than $1 million on the sale. If you don't mind living in the desert with a bunch of old celebrities, then this place is for you! Hell, it has an outdoor shower.
Washington Wizards forward Rashard Lewis is about to take a bath on his Florida man lair. The pad is on the market for $500,000 less than he paid for it, but hey, the dude probably needs the money. He's been locked out by the league and rumor has it, when the NBA offseason finally begins he's going to get axed by the Wizards, who can take advantage of a stipulation in the new collective bargaining agreement to wipe his salary off the books. Time to unload! Check it!
