Tom Schwartz Reveals Where He Wants to Buy a House: "That’s the Dream"

"Hopefully I’m successful enough," the Vanderpump Rules cast member said while sharing where he wants to purchase a home. 

By Abby Feiner

Tom Schwartz has dreams of buying a house in his home state, but the Vanderpump Rules cast member doesn't plan on moving back to Minnesota full-time.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

In a recent interview with Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, Tom was asked if he owns a cabin in Minnesota, and while the answer is currently "no," he is hoping that will change in the future. "That’s the dream," he shared. "We’re talking about long-term[.] I don’t know if I want to live there, but hopefully, I’m successful enough to have a cool lake cabin in Minnesota."

Where is Tom Schwartz from?

In the same interview, Tom opened up about his upbringing in Minnesota. "I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Woodbury," he said. "We were one of the first [families] to develop property there. We’re OGs. I remember Woodbury when it was full of marshes. Now it’s like this booming metropolis. I went to Woodbury High, left when I was 18 to go to Florida State University, but my heart will always be in Minnesota."

While Tom currently resides in California, he noted, "All of my immediate family now lives in Florida, but my half-siblings Sarah and Laura, have houses [in town], my brother Jeff lives in St. Paul. I’m a Minnesotan always and forever."

Where does Tom Schwartz live now?

Currently, Tom resides in a Los Angeles apartment. "I've grown to love this place," Tom says in the video above while giving a tour of his abode. "It feels kind of like a home, a transitional home...It's just temporary."

Still, he admits, "I never thought I would be this age living in a little bachelor pad."

In a recent preview clip of Vanderpump Rules Season 11, Episode 12 Tom Sandoval revealed that Schwartz pays "$4,500 a month" to rent his current apartment. In the same recent interview with  Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, Tom — who previously lived in a Valley Village house with Katie Maloney before they split — admitted, "Leaving a beautiful home with four bedrooms and five bathrooms and going to a small apartment is humbling."

"You pay the same amount—that’s what’s so infuriating in Los Angeles—I pay the same amount for my decent apartment as I did for my beautiful 3,500 square foot home with a pool," he shared. "It hurts the pride and ego a bit."

Press play on the video above to take a tour of Tom's apartment, including his "organized" fridge, the living room, two bedrooms, and "little patio."
