The Florida house of current NFL analyst and former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino (not pictured) just went off the market. And thanks to the tumultuous real estate market of late, the Hall-of-Famer’s old digs were acquired for quite a bargain.
Florio J. and Glenda Abbate paid $7.2 million for the 10-bedroom, 12-bath lakefront home last month, Broward County property records show. Florio Abbate is the former president of Saxon Business Systems in Miami Lakes.
Marino, who had the home built, paid $2.15 million in 1995, records show, though that doesn’t include the cost of upgrades or additions since the purchase.
Marino and his wife were originally asking for $15.9 million [last item], but then threw in all of the furniture and a signed football before lowering the price to 13-something. Can we finally blame the mortgage crisis on Dan Marino’s autographed footballs? It’s the only way we can start healing as a nation.
Images of the home worth more than your life await you after the jump.
