While the Nationals’ front office still has time to sign their star pitcher before he becomes a free agent at the end of next season, Max Scherzer’s recent real estate transitions have given local sports fans cause for concern.
If he gets his asking price, the sale of the McLean home would represent a windfall for Scherzer, who bought the property for $5.2 million in August of 2015. (He did invest in a significant renovation; today, the 8,264 square-foot home has five bedrooms, according to Realtor.com.)
Scherzer remains under contract with the Nationals through the end of the upcoming, 2021 season. His loss would represent a tough blow to the region’s sports fans, as well as its real estate market.
