The owners of the New York Mets are no strangers to financial calamity. After losing $550 million in Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme and paying out $80 million to settle a lawsuit claiming they were in on the scheme, Fred and Jeff Wilpon managed to keep their team by taking out loans and slashing payroll.
Selling a home can be hard. It should be very easy for this awesome grandma, though, because she listed her house with some amazing, adorable pictures.
Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain's Alabama home burned to the ground last night, and investigators would love to find out more about a car seen speeding from the scene.
You know, $54.5 million just doesn't go as far as it once did. Tiger Woods, who scraped together enough dough to get a mortgage at that price in Jupiter Island, Fla., two years ago, is already finding that out. We've all been there.
Former Boston College and NFL quarterback/folk hero Doug Flutie and his wife just put their Natick, Mass., estate on the market for $1.7 million. The house was built in 1995, and hoo boy does its age show.
It's good to be a wildly successful head coach of athletes who don't get paid. Nick Saban will make $5.6 million in base salary this year, so it's time to trade up from his North Georgia vacation home. Because sometimes, an $11 million house with a freaking lighthouse isn't swank enough.
Above, Tom Brady's new $20 million California home, which, besides being sunken into what looks like an un-traversable valley, also has a moat—literally, a moat. You can't really see it from the above angle because the massive house is blocking our view, but here's another view, where you can the moat that Tom Brady…

The new season of 30 for 30 kicks off tonight with Broke, a look at pro athletes' penchants for burning through their fortunes. One of them is Curt Schilling, whose video game company not only went bankrupt, but blew tens of millions of dollars worth of shady taxpayer-funded loans. So it's maybe coincidence, maybe…
Are you a Times reader? Are you in the market for "A Magnificent Lakefront Estate Home in Prestigious 'Lake Butler Sound,' Windermere, Florida"? Do you have a Warren Sapp fetish that you haven't told anyone about? Well then you're already probably pretty excited! This was on page B7 of the Times today.
Ah, Park Slope: where diligently hip mothers push extravagant strollers into studiously low-key coffee shops, where you're nobody if you don't get your kale at the most organic of the four farmer's markets on your block, where you retire at 45 after your loosely-defined art collective produces no art in twenty years,…
Cal football coach Jeff Tedford still has a few more years left on his coaching contract, but it appears he's looking to downsize his living quarters just a tad, putting his palatial, two-acre estate, complete with a basketball court done up in UC-Berkeley colors, on the housing market for a cool $5.35 million.
Way back in 2008, Gilbert Arenas began work on his million-dollar swimming pool at his Great Falls, Va., mansion. D.C. Sports Bog had some photos of the project under construction, and it looked like a millionaire athlete's fever dream: a full stone grotto complete with its own hot tub, bar, fish tank, entertainment…
The listing describes this "stately colonial" in the Buffalo, N.Y., suburb of Amherst as "fantastic and gracious." The house sits on 5.1 acres and has four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, an oversized in-ground pool and hot tub, and tennis and basketball courts. But that's not all! A source tells us it's where…
Time (again) to picture what it would be like to be the next owner of Derek Jeter's apartment, where he's lived for the last 11 years.
According to Sapp, all his financial troubles are thanks to that eternal temptress, the can't-miss real estate deal. Sapp spoke to the Tampa Bay Times and elaborated on how a man who made around $60 million over his career was reducing to cataloging his sneaker and naked lady painting collections in a bankruptcy…
Last week, out of the blue, we received an email with the subject line "Home for Sale."
What could prompt Miami coach Tony Sparano to put his 5-bed 5-bath Mediterranean style home on the market? Could it be the Dolphins' 0-6 record? Their total lack of effort and execution? The whispers that Bill Cowher's finally ready to get back in the game? It's more prosaic: Tony gets lonely in that big old house.
Your morning roundup for March 31, the day a Bellaire, Ohio chair mourns the obese man who sat upon it for the past two years, leaving more than skin behind.
After months of presumably crashing on friend's sofas and living an Alan Partridge like existence in travel lodges, the good news is that Thierry Henry has finally splashed out on a snazzy New York flat.
