Link: Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen put house on for sale for $39.5 million
Combine their leaving the Kraft neighborhood with word that they are shopping for homes in the NJ area outside NYC and Viola! Brady a JETE in 2020 is on the table. Or if instead he's a JINT, either way I need good instructions on seppuku.
I can't see any good angle to him selling that place, as family oriented as he is. This might be his last season with New England.
I was being my typical wise ass self about NY teams, but yeah I get no good vibes with them selling this estate.
They really are looking outside NYC in the pricier burbs.
Yeah, no way he plays with New York Giants or New Jersey Jete. If they move to the New York area it's for Gisele. But apparently he still has his place in the Back Bay ...
There are many other reasons that could prompt a move. A new job for Giselle perhaps, school for kids, maybe his other baby Mama has needs, or anything no football related. Brady so close to the end would facilitate a short term family arangement where maybe the family lives in CT and he near Gillette for a season or 2+.
He's 42 so this sort of thing was inevitable. One has to be a little concerned this is his last but I refuse to believe he'd play elsewhere.
Brady also recently signed with the William Morris Endeavor talent agency in NYC, an agency that represents many athletes who moved into broadcasting
I'm just connecting the dots: he's VERY family oriented with young kids; he doesn't like the new contract terms; he's 42. Why wouldn't he wait 'til he finally is officially done playing here to sell the place?
The Bundchens are savy real estate investors and the McMansion market has collapsed in southern Connecticut and NJ.....and this Brookline listing news could simply be “sell now before similar real estate woes hit the high end market in Boston”.
Plus he’ll be closer to his son John...I'm in agreement with you about this doesn’t look great. He’s a free agent next year so maybe he’ll just call it quits
Selling a home... especially a home like THAT... can take time. This doesn't surprise me, or make me at all nervous.
...okay... maybe a teensy bit nervous...
He's retiring after this season.
We tank for Trevor, everybody wins.
Home is off the market and he signed an extension
Hes here if he wants to play and if he doesnt then nothing we can do.
Just make certain your knife is razor sharp. Dull blade can make for a messy outcome.
While this is a bit disconcerting, who knows what's really happening there. Maybe they were told it will take at least a year to sell, and they'd better put it on the market sooner rather than later; maybe they've built in a sale-leaseback into their listing agreement (i.e. we'll sell you the property, but we have the option to lease it on a yearly basis, for the next 2 or 3 years); maybe they are setting things up for the future for the kids so they will be in the same school system for most of their years, and Giselle is planning to live in NY with the kids from now on, no matter what happens with Tom (it's not like it wouldn't be pretty easy for them to commute to games if they wanted to do so during the season). Maybe it was a bluff by Brady (since it's already been removed from the MLS listing service) and now that the Pats signed his deal they are "off the market."
At this point, I feel like we can't worry about it. We've had such a great ride and we are guaranteed at least one more year, just like Brady. Go Patriots!!
You're worrying about nothing, Tunescribe.
Relax everyone. He's probably just getting a divorce after a soul-crushing extra-marital affair, both physical and emotional.
I agree with the "maybe he just wants to live in a different house" tweet. He could afford an entire town out here in Western Mass if he wanted. Just private jet to/from practice, no problem.
