Speaking with in a recent interview, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member noted that she and her husband, John Fuda, bought their shore house as an investment property back in 2016. 

"We bought it as an investment, and it sat on the market for a little bit without a buyer," she shared. "[The] sale fell through, so John and I were kind of like, 'When are we going to get an opportunity like this again?' The house was already renovated, so [we thought] 'Let’s just keep it.' So we didn’t really plan on having a shore house. It kind of just like worked out that way." 

She added: "We have to finish it. It’s not done. It’s very staged feeling, [as] if I was showing it to somebody to sell doesn’t have that warmth to it yet."

In the interview with, Rachel noted she needs to "hang things on the walls" and that her outside pool deck is "not finished" yet to her liking. "It's literally empty, there’s nothing there," she shared. "We have pool chairs, but we want to put a pizza kitchen out there [and] a bar [to] make it so we can entertain." 

While the New Jersey mom noted that she likes having a "blank canvas" for parties, she still wants to have more decorative elements in the home when family and friends visit over the summer.

“It’s a lot smaller than what we’re used to, but I’m actually excited about it because I feel like it’s got a more [cozy] feel," she shares in the video tour. "This is gonna force all the kids to sit at the table and make great memories.”
