He has purchased and sold homes in Charlotte, North Carolina and in Beverly Hills, California, but other than that, he does not seem to be a real estate mogul.
Perhaps his money goes into raising his family.
Newton is the father of seven children and is a very hands-on dad.
Cam Newton mist be feeling good. His postgame presser is a family affair. ‘'They don't know who I am,'' Newton said of his son and daughter. ‘'They just know me as daddy. I am going to try and keep it that was as long as I can.'' https://t.co/Kzs17iwicP pic.twitter.com/jwIP16Ev1x

In September 2020 after signing with the Patriots, Newton shared the difficult decision not to move the family to Massachusetts immediately with the COVID-19 epidemic raging on.
“I’m a very family-orientated person. I’m a very hands-on dad and the fact that people don’t realize because they are jaded by the outfit that I wear, they are jaded by the energy on the field, they are jaded by the football figure of who I am.”

At 32 years of age, Cam Newton is at an interesting point in his NFL career.
For the past two seasons, he has signed one-year deals with the New England Patriots.
He is competing with rookie Mac Jones for the starting quarterback job.
Who would you choose to be the Patriots QB1?

It is unclear if he has a long-term future as a starting quarterback based on the youth-oriented push at the quarterback position (excluding a noteworthy few like Tom Brady, Matt Ryan, and Russell Wilson).
Will Newton be content if his role ultimately switches to that of a backup quarterback?
Only time will tell how Newton will feel about the situation if that happens.
Newton is currently focused on keeping his job and leading the 2021 New England Patriots into the regular season next month.
But, no matter what happens, we know Newton will not be hurting financially.
