Colin Kaepernick, With $20 Million Net Worth, Bid San Francisco Adieu After Selling His Bay Area Mansion for a Ridiculous Amount in 2017

Published 04/30/2022, 1:39 PM EDT

Colin Kaepernick did not part ways with the San Francisco 49ers on good terms. After being drafted in 2011 as the 36th pick overall, the quarterback lasted just about six seasons in the league before being snubbed as a free agent. While he was bidding a tearful adieu to San Fran, he had to sell his valuable abode in the Bay Area, yet he incurred decent profit from it.

According to Los Angeles Times, the 4,600-square-foot house was originally built in 1999. The 49ers signal-caller extensively renewed and remodeled the property during his stay in Bay Area. Kaepernick bought the estate for a whopping $2.7 million in 2014 as per the records.
