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!
