Interested in buying Dan Snyder’s luxurious Potomac mansion? Well, here’s some good news for you.
According to a report by Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post, the former owner of the Washington Commanders has reduced the asking price of his magnificent home by $14 million. This stunning five-bedroom, ten-bathroom estate, spanning over 30,000 square feet, is now listed at $34.9 million.
Initially, the mansion was listed for $49 million on February 6. However, potential buyers should keep in mind that in 2021 alone, the property tax on this home amounted to a whopping $17.113 million. So, be prepared for a hefty tax bill!
Last month, NFL owners officially approved Dan Snyder’s sale of the Washington Commanders to a group led by Josh Harris for a record-breaking $6.05 billion. This deal marked the highest purchase price ever for an American-based sports team. Josh Harris is also the owner of the NHL’s New Jersey Devils and the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers.
Snyder had owned the franchise since 1999, a span of 24 years. Unfortunately, the team’s fortunes declined under his ownership. Despite boasting a proud history that included three Super Bowl victories under legendary head coach Joe Gibbs, the Commanders experienced dysfunction and misery under Snyder’s leadership.
During Snyder’s tenure, the team only managed to win two out of the eight playoff games they played, with their last postseason victory dating back to the 2005 season. Overall, Snyder’s ownership record stood at a dismal 164-220-2.
With Harris now taking the reins, Commanders fans can look forward to a fresh era of football.
