Melissa's Real Estate Nightmare
Melissa dishes on the status of her new home and the house in Montville.
Hi! Hope everyone is having a great summer. It's goes by so fast. Before you can blink, we'll be sending the kids back to school, so enjoy it!
I thought this was a great episode. You really got to see more about our personal lives and what is going on with each of our families. I love that you are starting to get to know the new girls better. Again, I think they are a great addition to this show!
So as you already know, we moved to Franklin Lakes last September and you will see us in our rental home this season. We bought a property there and are building a house a couple miles away from where we are renting.
Watching this episode makes me think about two things that I wish I could go back and erase. The first was making that statement about why we wanted to move and the second was not listening to my gut and going through with the sale of our Montville home to the person who bought it.
There has been a lot of nonsense out there surrounding the status of our Montville home so I want to clear some things up. When we said we sold our home last year, we truly believed we had. We signed a purchase contract and agreed on an extended close. Joe builds and sells houses for a living and a lease-purchase agreement is nothing out of the ordinary. We would have NEVER moved our family into a rental or bought a property in Franklin Lakes if we thought otherwise. I can’t say too much more as we are currently taking the appropriate legal steps to remove this person from our home. Just know that the ridiculous stories he sends to bloggers are just that.
And yes, once everything has been sorted out, we plan to move back to Montville while Joe continues to build the house in Franklin Lakes. Why? Because it makes the most financial sense. There is no reason to continue to pay for a rental and leave that big house empty.
At this point, we are still building the house in Franklin Lakes and will decide at a later date which house we'll put on the market. It will all come down to what is best for our family, but I promise when I know, you'll know!
See you next week!
And don't forget I'll be live on-air on HSN July 28th with my new jewelry collection, which is currently available on HSN.com!
