Joe And Melissa Gorga Sell Home For $3.8 Million

August 21, 2013 07:02 AM by Stephanie Gustafson

As her frenemy Teresa Giudice faces a whole host of fraud charges, Melissa Gorga is busy making her own important financial decisions. Her latest involves the sale of her New Jersey mansion. The returns are nothing to scoff at, as the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is now nearly $4 million richer!

Joe and Melissa Gorga are officially able to breathe a sigh of relief, as they recently managed to snag the full asking price of $3.8 million for their New Jersey mansion. This is quite the increase over the $950,000 the Gorgas spent when initially purchasing the home in 2007. Of course, to be fair, the family put a lot of work into the mansion, so it makes sense that their asking price would be somewhat higher. And the new owners get plenty for their money, with the mansion boasting a total of 9,500 square feet, not to mention six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and an in-home theater.

The next plan for Joe and Melissa Gorga? Building their ultimate dream home. The reality couple has already purchased property in Franklin Lakes, where they will be living right next to fellow Real Housewives star Caroline Manzo. The planning process is well underway, with Melissa explaining to Radar Online that, “It’s going to be a lot of work designing and building the new home, but Joe is an incredible builder and I’m excited to go back to where we started our family.”

Until the dream home is completed, the family will rent another home in the area. Melissa has done all the requisite research and feels that Franklin Lakes will be a great place for her kids to get the ultimate education. “I feel like this was meant to be. It happened just in time for the kids to start their first of day of school.”

Any predictions as to the luxuries that will surely work their way into Joe and Melissa Gorga’s new home? Feel free to share them in the comments section below!

    Wow the new owners must have not seen the episode where they found out the bathroom vanity was made of plywood, it cracked up and turned to dust when a potential buyer looked at the home. Talk about paid too much, let that buyer beware!

    It’s nice they were able to sell their home. Lucky them for getting full asking price.
    I’m curious if anyone else thinks that some of these women are getting darker and darker in every season. Do they own their own tanning beds or what?

    doogal, that episode was explained on “watch what happens live”. The so called vanity falling apart was in the children’s playroom. I’m guessing in REALIY, there was a home inspection and am guessing since they got full asking price, the house was pretty darned nice.

    If Tre and Juicy go to jail, I hope the show doesn’t get cancelled then what they gonna do for money? Seriously, because if Tre is not on the show, there is no RHONJ.

    The Gorga’s net worth was -$1.5 million. So, they are not worth $4 million when they were in the hole. The media lies so damn much.

    Melissa’s new manager, Johnny Wright bought their house. Joe repaired the home a bit right before they sold it. My source: stoopidhousewives.com she has the scoop on everything.

    They didn’t sell their house. They are moving money issues and hustling. They make Teresa’s money issues look like child’s play! That’s what they get when you try to be something you aren’t,,,,
