Junior Seau paid $3.2 million for his Oceanside home in 2005. Late last month, the beachfront house was sold for nearly  $2 million, according to the North County Times.

“The two-story house at 604 S. The Strand was put on the market in July with an asking price of $2,295,000, according to real estate listings,” the paper said Friday.

“It sold Aug. 31 for $1,975,000, according to Paula Skinner of ERA Ranch & Sea Realty, which listed the property.”

In a phone interview Friday, Skinner told Patch that the seller was a trustee for the Seau estate.

Skinner told the paper the 2,200-square-foot, two-story house was on the market for 39 days.

“That is a quick sale for a property in that price range,” Skinner was quoted as saying, but not disclosing the buyer.

A Zillow posting described the house but not the fact it was the scene of Seau’s suicide on May 2, when the former Chargers great shot himself in the chest at age 43.

Zillow said:

This Wonderful Seaside Home boasts Amazing Ocean Views from the Spacious Great Room, Dining Area, Island Kitchen & Relaxing Deck. The Upper Level also features 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths & Full-Size Laundry. The 1,018 sq.ft. Lower Level offers a Huge Bonus Room, Kitchenette, Additional Bed & Bath, Courtyard Patio, Storage Areas, plus a 3-Car Garage. A Fabulous Beach House, Get-A-Way or Vacation Rental close to Pier, Marina, Shops, Dining, Theatre & Commuter Rail. This Beachfront Property is an Exceptional Buy.

It's important to remembr EVERY house has taken a similar hit since 2005 when the market was insane! Don't you remember, everyone was selling their home, their cndo, their doghouse for astronomical prices, and moving to Denveer or Phoenix. At that price, the house was probably 1.2 M over normal price. It sold quickly now because there is such a shortage of homes for sale, plus it was JS's.
