Does Josh live in Buffalo or WNY in the offseason?

Recommended Posts

He seems to be around a lot if he isnt "here" as he was at that Sabres game the other night... I dont know as if you "fly in" for a Sabres game from CA lol.

Very few guys who play for the Bills actually buy a home in the area.

 

Dion Dawkins did. In Hamburg.

He did, Hughes has a home here and a few other guys, but it makes more sense to rent unless you get a long-term extension.

You're right, he did say that.  I just don't see anything in the property records.

Stop being an obsessive fanboy.  Seriously.  Who the hell looks up local records to see if a QB bought a home in the area?  Are you a stalker?

I'd guess he purchased it as an LLC or a Trust purchase.

fortunately purchasing a house in wny is a pretty cost effective process.  it can be cheaper than rent depending on what you're looking for.  hell, i know a few people who have multiple kids/friends going to school at the same place, so they buy a house for the time the kids are there.  cheaper than living in the dorms/apartments, and they sell it for a slight profit.

Why would you doubt that?  Allen has said in several interviews that he bought a house in B’lo.

Other players have talked about hanging at “Josh’s house” regularly to watch Monday nite football and play group games

Because financially it's probably smarter for him to rent a place before making a big commitment. WNY doesn't have the greatest real estate appreciation and has high taxes.

I believe last year he went back to his hometown in Central Valley CA so I would assume he'd go there again.

 

He said in interview that he visited, but he prefers So. Cali.

Said when he goes home, people keep wanting to buy him dinner and he gains weight.

Said in So Cali “no one cares about football” so he can just train.

You can still find out.  It's not that difficult to do.  I would say it's probably in an LLC over a trust.

Man signed a four-year $21M fully guaranteed contract with $13.5M up front and another $1.4 salary/bonus last year.

 

Financially, it might be smarter for him to live in his parent’s basement and drive a $5k dented van like Kirk Cousins does, but he doesn’t have to drive all his decisions by what’s “best”.   He can afford to buy himself a WNY house, a truck, and a Range Rover if he wants to, pay off his family’s farm debt and float his dad the $$ for a few deep wells, and still have plenty left to invest as long as he doesn’t go too nuts otherwise.

 

The other side of “not great real estate appreciation” is you can buy a very nice house for much less $$ than other parts of the country.

I think White did, and Beasley talked about his house and using his playoff $$ to buy some kind of ATV he could use to wheel his kids around his property in his podcast

 

I ‘spect it may not make sense as an investment, but comparing a couple years mortgage & taxes vs. a couple years rent of a high-end place probably comes out in the wash, even if it loses some $$ on resale.  

 

For a celebrity, owning vs renting probably has some security/privacy benefits, too.
