Two pro athletes who made the switch from Golden State to Empire State teams are now selling their California properties.
Touchdown king LaDainian Tomlinson, formerly of the San Diego Chargers and currently of the New York Jets, has listed his suburban San Diego home for $5.21 million. The 9,565-square-foot house is described by Trulia as a mixed Mediterranean/Spanish-style construction. It has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a private theatre. The 13-acre property includes a pool, basketball court, tennis court and cabana.
A little further north, hockey star and former Vogue intern Sean Avery is selling his Los Angeles home, which is apparently no longer needed since he joined up with the New York Rangers. The 2-bedroom, 2-bath Laurel Canyon house is modest by pro athlete standards, and is selling for less than $1 million, the RealEstalker blog reports. The current $859,000 list price is reduced from an initial price of $929,000.
While Avery stands to lose money on this L.A. property, it appears to have retained more of its value than pro golfer David Duval's two Denver houses. Duval and his wife are trying to sell the houses for millions less than they paid, The Wall Street Journal recently reported.
