The athlete housing market had slowed to a trickle over the past seven days or so until Jazz guard Devin Harris went and listed his 7400 sq. ft. Dallas mansion for $2.1 million. Remember Harris? He had the four seasons in Dallas before being traded to the Nets in the Jason Kidd deal. During Harris' time in the Big D he bought this giant house. What do you get in this deal? Lots, and we mean massive amounts, of stone. And pools of water. 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!
Want to buy Bubba Watson's North Carolina lake house and hope some of his Master's magic rubs off on you while you're in the swimming pool? This place can be yours for only $1,450,000. It's not massive, but you'll be throwing some wild lake parties on the insane outdoor patio and boat beer pier. Don't like to mow a lawn? This place is perfect and is only 3,400 sq. ft. to clean. JUMP!
Matt Cain is due for a pay raise after the 2012 season and he'll either get a huge contract from the Giants or sign elsewhere as a free agent. So what's the logical move at this point? Sell that $1.8mm house you've been slumming in while playing in San Fran. He'll make $15,000,000 this season and will probably demand at least that over 6-7 years in his next contract. Is this a move to rid himself of a house before leaving for NY? JUMP!
Did you buy a house in 2006 at the top of the housing bubble? You still living in that house? You paying on a house that's $3mm underwater? Would you blame Santana Moss if he quit paying on his house near Ft. Lauderdale? Not us. Dude has to be careful with his cash. Losing that house doesn't mean much. But, it's another thing that the IRS wants money Moss seems to owe them. A double whammy for a dude who got a $5mm signing bonus last summer. JUMP!
