RGIII Buys Loudoun County Mansion For $2.5M: Figure 1
RGIII’s home at Creighton Farms

Robert Griffin III will continue the rehabilitation on his injured knee in some luxurious digs.

Late Wednesday, the Washington Business Journal reported that the Washington Redskin quarterback paid the tidy sum of $2.5 million for a 9,000-square foot, five-bedroom home in Loudoun County.

From the WBJ:

The football star, who’s slated to expand his household with a planned July wedding to Rebecca Liddicoat, recently acquired the Creighton Farms Drive home from Apex Custom Homes CEO W. Scott Prendergast, county records show. The property is appraised at roughly $1.8 million.

In addition to some palatial homes, Creighton Farms, where the house is located, is home to a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, no doubt a deal sweetener for RGIII.

    If the property only appraised for $1.8 million, why did he pay $2.5 million?

    His broker knew his client is worth 100's of millions of dollars and was only looking at a higher commission. Gold Digger!

    Not that uncommon for new construction to appraise for much lower than what the developer wants for it, especially when the final sale price includes builder options and upgrades.

    I live 4 miles away from this community. He overpaid for his home And this neighborhood is overpriced. There are homes around me with much more sq footage at half the price he paid along with 10 acres. He got robbed. Hope his ACL surgery isn't starting to mess with his ability to think.
