Rumor has it Tampa Bay Buc Tom Brady is buying this waterfront home
Since signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, quarterback Tom Brady has been renting a house on Davis Islands owned by Derek Jeter. However, last month the former Yankee put his house on the market for $29 million. Now, Brady and his fam may have found a more permanent residence in Clearwater, according to TMZ.
Located at 837 Harbor Island, the
The home currently is asking $7.5 million and has a pending offer. The listing agent is Sophia Vasilaros of Smith & Associates.
A spokesperson for Smith & Associates disputes TMZ's report, telling the Tampa Bay Times that Brady is not buying the house. However, when asked if a trust or company linked to the QB was behind was the purchase the listing agent told the times: “No … Tom Brady is not buying this house.”
Since moving to Tampa, privacy has been an issue for Brady.
The GOAT moved into Jeter's crib back in April and was paying an estimated $44,321 a month, according to the Zillow estimate (though he probably got a better deal). Shortly after moving in, Brady complained on the Howard Stern Show that people were parking their boats outside his house. "I forgot people could drive up to your house," said Brady to Stern. "Here they can pull right up to the back of the house. Derek did a pretty good job of screening it. I am a little bit of an introvert. I feel like my house is my place I can relax. When you are outside the house, you understand everything with being me... in the backyard there's a lot of boats that have pulled up and people at the front."
It doesn't appear this new house will be much different. Plus, now he'd have to deal with the Courtney Campbell Causeway on a daily basis.
