Real estate company knocks down reports Tom Brady is closing in on $7.5 million mansion after Jeter puts Tampa rental up for sale

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady appeared to make himself at home with his new team after tossing five touchdowns last weekend.

Finding a permanent home for his family, however, may not be going as smoothly.

The New York Post on Thursday knocked down reports that the 43-year-old Brady is reportedly interested in a $7.5 million Tampa Bay-area mansion located in a private community.

Brady and his family have been living in Derek Jeter’s mansion in the Tampa area since April when he signed with the Buccaneers but Jeter is in the process of selling the home.

According to TMZ, the six-time Super Bowl champ is in the later phases of negotiations of the custom-built five-bedroom home in a gated community in Clearwater, Florida. The site reported that he could close at some point this week.

The 8,548 square feet home has 5 full baths and 3 half baths and

The Rainbow Skate Center has decided to close its doors after many years and memories, hosting a garage sale to get rid of everything.

The skating rink first opened back in 1980, and the owners expressed the expenses of the much-needed repairs and the overall upkeep.

Cumbest added “The facility isn’t in the best shape and would be out of a lot of money repairing only making very little profit.”

After 11 years, the Southwest Florida Military Museum & Library will close its doors Wednesday in Cape Coral.

“It’s just the end of the road,” said founder and CEO Ralph Santillo. “That’s it.”

The closure comes after a financial dispute with the museum’s former business partner, which owns the building and had wanted the museum to pay $5,000 a month in rent, which would go up to $8,000 next year. Until recently, the museum wasn’t required to pay rent at all.

Santillo and the museum’s board of directors tried raising the money earlier this year, but only received about $6,500 through a GoFundMe page and other donations.

“It was never enough to really make a dent,” Santillo said. “We had to really face reality that we’re
