Daniel Snyder lists house for $49 million

Billionaires tend to live in really, really big and expensive houses. And when they sell them, they hope to get fair value, and perhaps then some.

According to the Wall Street Journal (via SportsBusiness Daily), Snyder has listed his Potomac, Maryland house for a whopping $49 million.

The 15.2-acre property has a 30,000-square-foot main house, with a two-bedroom guest house and plenty of bells and whistles.

Snyder bought the team 19 years ago, and the franchise largely has struggled under his stewardship. This year, a supposed 50-year sellout streak has ended, with plenty of empty seats at games in an outdated stadium occupied by a traditionally underperforming team.

  1. There’s something sad about this considering we live in a country with 30 million hungry people. Amazing what a wealth gap we have.

  2. The poster child for what’s wrong with America. A guy who has virtually done everything wrong in business both with his other ventures and with that franchise, yet he’s still selling a home worth $49 million.

  3. Fedex Field is 21 years old, how outdated can it be ? Maybe some refurbishing is needed, but a new stadium ?
    If Mr.Snyder wants a new stadium, he should pay for it himself, with no tax payer money.

    Loser talk. I’m thankful we live in a country that gives you an opportunity to become rich depending on the work you want to put into it. This is also one of the few countries that a lot of our poor people are fat and own smart phones, cars and 50 inch smart TVs.

  5. $49 million? That is a slum home in Jackson Hole, WY!!! The movie stars and lawyers(from back east) live in houses valued at $100-150 million. Average new construction costs for a high level house is $750-1000 per square foot.

  6. FedEx Field was a dump when it opened in ’97 cause the Kent-Cook family rushed its construction. Lousy facility.

  7. Like it or not, he earned his money through shrewd business moves and hard work. The sad thing is there are NFL players mostly QBs (one QB with less then 10 starts) who can afford that 50 million dollar house with 50+ million to spare.
    Meanwhile how many of my fellow Veterans go hungry and homeless or without medical care? #SmH

  8. He obviously did something right to make his billions so how can he be so terrible about running and NFL franchise. That doesn’t make any sense to me unless he just bought the team as a hobby. He does seem to care about winning though, unlike Mike Brown. I think Snyder has made some really bad decisions including hiring Spurrier and his thing with RGIII. Good thing for him he’s a better businessman than he is a team owner.

  9. Redskins aren’t bad so far this year. They win this Sunday that stadium will be full rest of year. Snyder gets a C compared with Stephen Ross’s F in Miami.

  10. >>with plenty of empty seats at games in an outdated stadium occupied by a traditionally underperforming team.

    If the team was performing well, the stadium would be full. It has nothing to do with the stadium being 21 year sold. Which isn’t that old either.

  11. Shove the discussion of wealth gap. The wealthy never make the poor make stupid personal decisions nor do the reach sneak into poor peoples’ houses to steal the dimes and quarters hidden in the cushions of the couches inside.

    I am so sick of this pathetic discussion of the poor v. rich.

    Snyder is a jerk. Being wealthy is not a problem. He’s just obtuse on how to run a team.

  12. FedEx Field is a dump in the middle of nowhere. Jack Kent Cooke just wanted to get a stadium built before he died and didn’t much care how. Word is that the new stadium will be out by their training facility in Northern VA. Still in the middle of nowhere but maybe not as much of a dump.
