Earlier this week we helped Peyton Manning out by offering some suggestions on places he could call home in the Denver, CO area so it’s only fitting that we offer the same services to the quarterback that he displaced. Tomorrow afternoon, Tim Tebow will officially become a member of the New York Jets. While New York is the city the Jets are given credit for representing, in actuality it’s New Jersey where Tebow will spend most of his time.
The Jets practice in New Jersey. Their home games are played in East Rutherford, NJ. And most of the coaches and players reside in the Northern New Jersey area. So instead of looking across the Hudson River, we at Coldwell Banker Real Estate have a few options for Mr. Tebow to consider:
|23 Cathedral Avenue; Florham Park Boro, NJ
The New York Jets practice facility is located in Florham Park, NJ which is actually just minutes from the Coldwell Banker corporate HQ. This is where Jets players spend most of their time for training camp, weekly practices and even meeting to review film so it makes sense for Tim Tebow to have a place nearby. Tebow is not one of the higher paid players in the league so this affordable 4 bedroom place makes sense. It’s got a yard, a pool in the back and enough space that he can turn one of the 4 bedrooms into a gym. The white picket fence out front also seems to suit Tebow perfectly. One thing to point out is that one of the rooms will need a decorating makeover as it’s currently decked out in New York Giants memorabilia. Coldwell Banker agent, Peggy Lee Peterson, currently has the home listed at $489,000.
|400 9th Street; Hoboken, NJ
Tebow played college football at Florida and has been in Denver the last few years, so now that he has the chance he may want to be closer to the greatest city in the world without having to pay Manhattan real estate prices. Here’s a bachelor pad in Hoboken that could suit him. It’s a unique unit that actually has a circular great room with 8 south facing windows that sets this condo apart from others. The building has a gym and it’s within walking distance of NYC transportation. Plus at $560,000 list price, it’s a good deal in a very popular New Jersey neighborhood. On top of that another great New York QB lives not too far away. Coldwell Banker agent Curtis Crystal is the listing agent for the property.
|110 South Street; Morristown, NJ
Last but not least is what I think might be the perfect bachelor pad for Tim Tebow in Morristown, NJ. Morristown is minutes from the practice facility in Florham Park and a short train or car ride to the Meadowlands for game day. It’s a a very walkable, historic city in Northern, NJ. This 2 bedroom condo is right near the center of town and is a corner unit that was recently renovated in 2008. It has a den and media room which is perfect for Tebow to study game film. It has two bedroom suites so Tebow could have family and friends stay with him when need be. It’s a gorgeous place and ironically is down the street from several Colonial era landmarks and churches.
So there are a few options for Tim Tebow to consider. Which one do you think he should pick? Cast your vote in the poll below and share your thoughts in the comments:
