Deion Sanders Selling Two Texas Homes

deion sandersPro Football Hall of Fame-er Deion Sanders must like real estate as much -- or even more than -- football. The former Atlanta Brave and twotime Super Bowl winner had his two Dallas homes on the market during this year's Super Bowl XLV in Arlington, Tex., hoping for a big audience. His agent, Marilyn Hoffman of Hoffman International Properties, sponsored one big NFL pre-Super Bowl party just so she could put her listings, including Deion's, on display.

He may have played for Atlanta, but like any good Texan, Sanders has his city-slicker place, a coolio Dallas penthouse listed for $7.5 million, and a $21 million ranch in Prosper, Tex., about 45 minutes north of Dallas.

The Prosper Ranch:

Deion's 109-acre ranch home boasts 29,122 square feet, has a two-story entry, banquet dining space, and an indoor basketball court and bowling alley. This magnificent home also boasts indoor and outdoor pools, a billiard room, a movie theater, a hall of fame gallery, a football field, a tennis court, a 12-acre lake and a guest house. Just so no one gets cold, there are also five fireplaces throughout, a game room and one car port.

The home is on the market -- still -- for $21 million. The Collin County Appraisal District shows a slightly different value: $5,410,602. Hint: Get the mineral rights.

The Penthouse:

This James Cheng-designed unit is in one of Dallas's first LEED-certified residential condos, the Azure. Sanders has it on the market for $7.5 million. Looks like he bought it lock, stock and barrel, Suite 3002, in 2009. The 5025 square feet include some balcony space. And this is a two-story condo, with a rooftop terrace and lounge with bar and full bath (so nice for guests, keeps your own potty pristine) and a private elevator to it all -- rooftop private pool, roof garden and fireplace. There is also a two-story living room, a terrace lounge that features a bar, an outdoor fireplace and a full bath.

Those of you who do not believe that there is a God --- your names are actually in the Bible. Says right there in Proverbs that a FOOL says in his/her heart that there is no God. Argue if you want, but in the end every knee will bow and tongue confess Jesus is Lord. Mark it down. Call me what you want. It's true staring you in the face. A smart person would check it out before it's too late.

I doubt if he'll go broke, but maintaining this property has to be a hit on his pockets now that he's not making the kind of money that he used to make. It's a smart move trying to get rid of some of these properties, but the timing is horrible.

you're all morons, arguing over whether god exists or not in the comments section of an article on two homes deion sanders is selling....that said you can't prove god doesn't exist and you can't prove he does...

Hmmm, very interesting. Deion did not buy these trappings during his hey day football career or non-impressive baseball career "try". That penthouse was purchased in 2009. While the asking price is 7.5 million, since he purchased it so recent, I'm sure he had to have paid at least 6 mil for it. He's crazy if he thinks someone will buy that place in this market. Why purchase it and unload it after a year's time. Maybe, the economic crunch is affecting everyone, not just us common almost middle class.

The only reason "Freon" Deion got saved was to protect his wealth. The old "devil made me do it" excuse is a winner for stopping divorce proceedings. Same thing with the 4-time Super Bowl loser, Jim Kelly. He bedded every women he could but when his wife caught him, whoops, Jesus time!
Phony hypocrates!

The biggest thing in Texas is property taxes. They have to be huge on these properties.

Two houses. Great. Deion, go into one of them and shut the door. Wait for further instructions.
