Welcome to the Bay Area, ChipJanuary 22, 2016
The San Francisco 49ers new Head Coach, Chip Kelly, has just listed the five-bedroom home near Philadelphia he purchased for $1.15 million four months ago, three months before being fired by the Eagles.
If Kelly is able to unload the remodeled 4,605-square-foot home for the full $1.2 million at which it has been listed, he could use the proceeds to buy a two-bedroom, one-bath fixer in Noe which needs work.
Or if he’s looking for a shorter commute to the 49ers home turf in Santa Clara, there’s a 1,200-square-foot, three-bedroom in Mountain View for $1.3 million.
Welcome to the Bay Area, Chip.

I thought NFL guys favored Blackhawk.
Major bummage… considering all the purchase, selling, fireing and moving to the bay area. Such is life.
Real estate agents, how much is the “Chip Kelly lived here” bonus on the resale price?
Sort of depends whether Kaepernick can run the spread offense properly next year.
SF or MV… no, they tend to go for gated suburbs.
The boonies then.
I’m betting he will go for a Rivermark Townhouse.
I did a double-take at the two houses this site highlights: the Mountain View home linked here has the same colors, bare winter trees and white porticos of the Philadelphia home, It’s a near-perfect Mini-Me…except that it costs another $200, 000.
Or he could, you know, move to the hometown of the Niners – Santa Clara – where he would get 50% more house than Mt.View. Still pales in comparison to what a megabuck buys in Philly.
After the 9’ers record this year, far safer to rent. If he manages to get them up to a respectable .500 within a year or two, then go ahead and buy. But I’d recommend getting at least a 4 year rental contract…
