Yesterday, the sports blogosphere created quite the "ZOMG!" stir after a few outlets posted that Aaron Rodgers was selling his Green Bay-area home.
But before Packers fans could become too excited ("I can buy Aaron Rodgers’ house!?") or aghast ("Is he leaving us?!"), the buzz balloon was quickly punctured. Rodgers, who has three years left on his contract, does not live at the residence; it's occupied by someone else; and the home was not – or, at least, isn't currently – on the market.
According to the residential real estate company and database Redfin, the perfectly nice-but-unremarkable 4,012-square foot house in Suamico, is actually not for sale. It may have been recently or will be at some point, but let's cross that goal line when we get to it.
Here’s the relevant info, courtesy of USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin:
Dan Posey with Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group, identified as the agent in the real estate listing on the company's website, said the house on Crown Point Boulevard is occupied and not on the market. Posey said he signed a confidentially agreement with a client that prevents him from saying any more about the property, other than that media reports about it being for sale are not accurate.
Rodgers bought the four-bedroom, 4,000-square foot house near Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve in July 2005 for $442,500, according to Brown County real estate records. He subsequently transferred ownership to RFI Holding LLC, which appears to be a Rodgers holding company. No subsequent sale was filed with the county, but Wisconsin doesn't have a deadline for recording transactions with the Register of Deeds.
Looks like Olivia Munn, Rodgers’ girlfriend and eternal cheesehead enemy, dodged another blame bullet. For now.
