TEBOW TIME TO BUY OR RENT?

The New York Metro Area can’t wait to welcome the cultural phenomenon, Tim Tebow, with open arms;  be it the avid sport fan or hopeless romantic!  In thinking of the perfect home for this superstar, we had to consider a few things - close proximity to the Stadium, low-key neighborhood where a celebrity sighting is common enough to the residents so they do not approach this newly appointed New York star, and an impressive enough space for him to enjoy and his friends and family to admire.

The Favorites:

TriBeCa:

4:1 Odds

Lots of celebrities live here so even Tim and his Tebow-Mania will just blend in.  Just minutes to be whisked away to the stadium for practices through nearby Holland Tunnel and the restaurants, culture and nightlife is one of a kind. 

Buy Recommendation:

If he plans on being here for the next three years of his contract this is a great option.  This Greenwich Street Penthouse is hand-picked by our Director of Sales, Sara Rotter.  It is a mega duplex with plenty of room and privacy for the 250 pound athlete to entertain and enjoy the outdoors.  Wrap terrace and private roof deck for the warm off-season and toasty fireplace for prime season.  Media Room to review plays and enjoy watching himself on the big stage! 

Rental Recommendation:

Loft Living in the Village

Chelsea:

8:1 Odds

A stone’s throw from another cultural phenomenon High-Line Park as well as the popular nightlife spots in the Meatpacking District.  Biggest plus is that it’s so far from the Lincoln Tunnel.

Buy/Rent Recommendation #1:

Our Listing Broker of the Year, Brian Lewis, said Tim should buy or rent at the Chelsea Enclave, a terrific new development that is on the grounds of the Chelsea Seminary. The Enclave has sexy lofty layouts, a private garage, a stunning roof deck, classic finishes, and private access to the Seminary grounds — a private park with plenty of room to throw a football, not to mention its own chapel. The Chelsea Enclave is a heavenly choice for the Jets new addition.

Buy Recommendation #2:

This Urban Oasis is a stone’s throw from the High Line Park and the Lincoln/Holland Tunnel

Long Shots:

Hoboken/Jersey City Area

15:1 Odds

Former stomping grounds of Eli Manning and many Jets and Giants, Tim will have no trouble fitting in to this area.  Very close to the Meadowlands less than 10 minutes.

Buy Recommendation:

If you want to take over the city, you might as well have the best view of the city imaginable at this Rare and Exquisite 3 bedroom home

Rental Recommendation:

36th floor above it all at this ultra luxurious penthouse in a building close to all recommended by our Director of Sales NJ, Eugene Cordano.

Brooklyn Heights/DUMBO

30:1 Odds

One of the most sought after neighborhoods in NYC.  Very green for the city, near Lovely Brooklyn Bridge Park with miles of runs on the East River to stay in shape.  A quiet relaxed way of life and vibe that is more Paris than Manhattan.  You can live in an area and join the video game developer who just bought writer Truman Capote’s house for 12.5 Million. 

Buy Recommendation:

Penthouse Living is the true trophy home, who better to live in a trophy home than a Heisman Trophy Winner. 

Rental Recommendation:

With 11 foot ceilings, he can easily have over his offensive line for dinner inside this opulent 2 Bedroom recommended by one of our Brooklyn neighborhood experts Sarah Parsons.
