Terry Bradshaw Real Estate Properties
When Terry retired from the NFL, he decided to invest in real estate. This proved to be a wise decision as his portfolio of properties around Oklahoma, Texas, and Mexico was worth an impressive $13 million leading up to 2008.
Out of instinct, Bradshaw began to sell his properties and consequently suffered a $900,000 loss from the sales. Had he delayed this decision by only a few months, he would have experienced losses ten times higher and potentially gone bankrupt. His financial advisor would eventually remark that losing $900k was the most astute investment choice he ever made.
In 2016, Terry earned $2.7 million when he sold off his luxurious 12-acre estate in Hawaii.
In 2014, Bradshaw listed his sprawling 744-acre ranch in Oklahoma for an impressive $10.8 million. He removed and re-listed it at various points between $10 to $12 million over the years. But in September 2022 he’s hoped for a higher return as he listed this stunning property at a whopping $22.5 million.
In 2019, Bradshaw revealed his plan to sell an opulent 4,560-square-foot property located in Jacksonville for $1.6 million.

Bradshaw has revealed during an interview that he earns money through the practice of “flipping planes”, similar to flipping homes. He said that at times, he invests up to $4 or $5 million into an aircraft and utilizes it for business before finally selling it off for a profit.
