Tom Brady appears to have listed Massachusetts home for sale
Tom Brady is entering what is essentially a contract year for the first time in his NFL career, and it appears he is also selling his home in Massachusetts. Try not to panic, Patriots fans.
Brady and his wife Gisele put their stunning Brookline, Mass., home on the market this week, as Tom E. Curran and Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston first noted. The five-bedroom, 9,716 square-foot home was built in 2015 and has a listing price of $39.5 million.
The home was initially listed as for sale on Tuesday morning, though Zillow later changed it to “off market.” However, there are several photos of the sprawling estate and a detailed description, so it is likely still for sale.
What does that mean? Probably nothing, as wealthy people buy and sell properties all the time. Patriots fans were concerned several years back when Brady and Gisele began building a home in California, though they quickly sold that property.
If you really want to play conspiracy theorist, you might point to a recent New York Post report that claimed Brady and Gisele have been shopping for homes in Greenich, Conn., and Alpine, NJ, which are on the outskirts of New York City. They have also been looking at schools in the city for their kids. Although, they already own one $20 million-plus luxury condo that they bought in New York several years ago, and that hasn’t impacted Brady’s status with the Patriots.
While the idea of Brady finishing his playing career outside of New England becomes more farfetched by the day, it’s fair to wonder if he has not ruled out the possibility of retiring after the 2019 season. His new contract “extension” is uniquely structured in a way that hints he could be thinking about walking away, which would not be shocking for a player who just turned 42. Listing his Massachusetts home for sale could be just another real estate investment move, or it might be another sign of things to come.
