Schiano Lowers Price On New Jersey HomeNovember 5th, 2013
Joe knows many Bucs fans are begging for Bucs commander Greg Schiano to put his house up for sale and find a new home. Joe is not one of those people. That’s not to suggest Joe thinks Schiano and his staff have done a good job. They have not. Joe likes Schiano and feels for him; a good guy caught in an awful situation (leaky Josh Freeman).
Well, Bucs fans are getting their wish. Schiano is trying hard to unload his house. His house in New Jersey, that is.
Still on the market nearly two years after taking over the helm of the Bucs, Schiano’s Jersey house is vacant, so Schiano lowered the price big time in an effort to get it off his books.
Kelly Heyboer of Newark Star-Ledger has the details on the massively reduced rate.
Schiano recently dropped the price — for the third time — on his 8,500-square-foot house near Rutgers’ football stadium, his real estate agent said. The house, which was originally listed for $2.3 million 19 months ago, is now available for $1.595 million.
“It definitely would be a bargain at the price it is now. It’s less than it cost to build it,” said Schiano’s agent, Jerry Kienlen of Kienlen Lattmann Sotheby’s International Realty in Basking Ridge.
Check out the photos on the link above. It has a way cool home theater (for film study?), a neat office and a huge kitchen.
The house, across a highway from Rutgers’ football stadium, is the most expensive house for sale in Piscataway, even after Schiano dropped the price. But be ready for a tax sticker shock. Last year, Schiano had to cough up $24,000 in real estate taxes. Ouch!
