Teresa Giudice Lists Third House in Lincoln Park

SELLER: Teresa Giudice
LOCATION: Lincoln Park, NJ
PRICE: $179,900
SIZE: 1,122 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 1 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: First came the over-blown faux-chateau in Towaco at $3.999 million, then came their rinky-dinky vacation house in Manahawkin for $315,000 and now comes word via one of the ever-so-helpful children that legally embattled and soon to be sentenced “Real Housewives of New Jersey” headliner Teresa Giudice also has a ticky-tacky property in Lincoln Park on the market with an asking price of $179,900.

Property records show Miz Giudice purchased the property in her own name in October 2005 for $170,000. She subsequently secured several mortgages and loans against the property, including at least one from a fella who himself was sent to the pokey in 2011 for mortgage and wire fraud, coincidentally the very crimes Mister and Missus Giudice pled guilty to and for which they will soon be sentenced. One of the lenders on the property initiated foreclosure proceedings when a Notice of Default was filed in May of this year but, honestly kittens and caboodles, it’s unclear to this property gossip if that matter is still an issue or if it’s been cleared up.

Current listing details for the property are slim but do show the mostly wooded parcel spans close to half an acre and the existing residence, a rag-tag 1920s era cottage set hard up on road, has three bedrooms and one bathroom in 1,122 square feet. In the right hands, this house could be quaint and cute — if quaint and cute is your thing — but right now it’s a bit of a mess with unkempt landscaping and what looks like sheets hung over some of the windows. Sheets!

Sheets as curtains are, of course, strictly verboten and, indeed, Rule #27 in “Your Mama’s Big Book of Decoratin’ Dos and Don’ts” succinctly states, “Sheets of any brand, color, pattern or thread count are never to be used as window coverings, not even as a cost saving decorative measure. Nevuh, hunties, evuh.” Fer chrissakes, you can buy about 47 dozen different types of actual curtain panels from Target for less than twenty bucks. But we digress.

A little research turned up evidence the Giudices first attempted to unload the property in September 2013 when it popped up for sale with at $199,000. The price plummeted to $150,000 before it was taken off the market in mid-May 2014 and than briefly put up for rent at $1,650 per month. (Maybe it’s tenants who are responsible for the sheet-curtains? Anyways…)
