Flopping and scoring aren’t reserved for the playing field or court with athletes, it extends to the real estate market as well. Whether they are trying to ditch an estate after being traded to a new team, or finding a steal on a property, athletes are subject to the ebbs and flows of housing just like everyone else — except with much deeper pocket books. Here are seven athletes who were buying, selling, and listing in 2013.

1. Gilbert Arenas

Arenas has not played in the NBA since the 2011-2012 season, but he is reportedly trying to make a comeback. Earlier this year, his house returned to the real estate market, with a listing price for $3.5 million. Located in Falls Church, Virginia, the home has seven bedrooms and ten bathrooms. Also located within the 9,042-square-foot home are hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and a shark tank. Arenas had the house built shortly after he started his tenure with the Washington Wizards.
