RHONJ stars Joe and Melissa Gorga are attempting to sell their Montville mansion again. TheÂ 9,000 square-foot home has an asking price of $3.5 million this time around.
The couple originally purchased the homeÂ in 2007 for $950,000, even though Joe built the house. There have been many rumors that Joe, who isÂ a luxury home developer, initially built the house with a construction loan only, and when Melissa joined the show they moved into the home hoping to portray a more lavish lifestyle for the cameras.
At one point the GorgasÂ had a potential buyer at the original $3.8 million asking price, but that deal ended in lawsuits. You can read more about that here.
The home now has even more add-ons than it did originally; includingÂ a spa-like pool and hair salon.Â The couple’sÂ real estate agent describes the property as aÂ â€œcelebrity estateâ€ and boastsÂ of prospective buyers being able to touch a bit ofÂ â€œHollywood Hills glam meets East Coast style.â€ This includes the recording studio in the unfinished basement, but the property also featuresÂ 2 acres of land, six bedrooms, and 7.5 bathrooms.
So where will Melissa and Joe live? You may remember that they built a home in Franklin Lakes, which they never took occupancy of and then reportedly sold for $2.65 million back in July 2016.Â However, NJ.comÂ learned that property records show the home in Franklin Lakes has never been sold and is not currently on the market.
I have to say I’m quite surprised they are trying to sell the home again, but something seems off. Let’s chat! Why do you think the Gorgas are wanting to move?
