Kansas City Chiefs’ Alex Smith Sells in Los Gatos for $2.65 Million
Alex Smith, the quarterback for NFL team Kansas City Chiefs, has finally managed to unload his home in Los Gatos, Calif., for $2.65 million.
The Los Angeles Times broke news of the deal noting that Smith was represented by Cherish Atkinson of Sereno Group. Tim O'Halloran of the O'Halloran Group represented the buyer in the transaction.
Smith listed the home for $3.25 million in July 2013. However, for some reason the place was de-listed soon. The place came up on the market again February, this year, with a discounted price tag of $2.95 million. According to public records, the home was put into escrow for an undisclosed amount in April but came back immediately for $2.7 million.
The records also show that it last sold in 1996 for $1.41 million.
The home is a 5,644-square-feet single-family home sitting on a 0.99-acre lot. The house has four bedrooms, and three full and one half bathrooms.
The large home boasts of plush interiors with mixed hardwood, carpeted and tiled flooring, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors. Exclusive living spaces include a family room, a separate dining area, a large living area, a powder room and a recreation room.
Outside, the home has a swimming pool and ample greens both in the rear and the front. A covered car garage is also available on the property.
Alex Smith made his NFL debut in 2005 playing for the San Francisco 49ers. He got traded to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013. At the end of the season, Smith was selected to replace Tom Brady in the Pro Bowl, making it the 29-year-old's first Pro Bowl game.
Currently, the Chiefs are considering extending his contract with the team and Smith's asking is something in the range of $50 million, reports iSprotsweb.com. The negotiations are still on.
"If the Smith negotiations linger into early August, it may be a sign that Dorsey and Reid want to give Tyler Bray and Aaron Murray a long look before deciding how much hardball they play. The Chiefs may be committed to Smith, but only the Smith who provides stability and reliability at the right price," Mike Tanier, a contributor for Sports on Earth, wrote.
