Alumni of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Chris, and Jacqueline Laurita, are still selling their New Jersey mansion. It’s currently on the market for $1.85 million dollars. According to Zillow and NJ.com, they have now dropped the listing price on the home by $100,000 after they had put their home back on the market for $1.95 million dollars back in April. Jacqueline has spoken about her home being for sale on Twitter. She’s also mentioned that she may be moving to a different state!
The couple’s home is a sprawling 5,674-square-foot mansion in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey. The house has been on and off the market since 2014 and is the subject of ongoing foreclosure litigation. According to NJ.com, the current asking price is $1 million less that what they originally listed the home for. Chris purchased the home in 2001 for slightly more than $1.7 million dollars, according to property records. It’s almost 2 acres and features a two-story foyer and a library. According to the listing, the great room features custom molding, a fireplace, and a wet bar. The gourmet kitchen has high-end appliances, a wine fridge and a large walk-in pantry. The family house has six bedrooms and six bathrooms.
The finished basement that has a playroom, which has been shown on the RHONJ. They also have a wine cellar and card room, an office and a full bathroom. Their home was last assessed for nearly $2.2 million, and property taxes were $35,737 in 2018, according to Zillow. Back in 2015, their lenders for the home initiated foreclosure proceedings, but in June 2016, the foreclosure was dismissed.
However, in July of 2017, M&T Bank and Hudson City Savings Bank filed notice of foreclosure with the Superior Court in Bergen County, according to online court documents. That case is still active. Chris and Jacqueline have discussed their financial stress on the show due to their son’s expensive therapies for autism.
Jacqueline is an OG of the RHONJ, and she first appeared on the show in 2009 before briefly leaving in 2014. She then came back to the cast full-time for season seven of the show. There are often rumors of her return to the series, but she hasn’t returned – yet.
I’m wishing Chris & Jacqueline the best!
