If we know one thing about The Real Housewives of New York City ladies, it’s that they’re all on the move this season. From Ramona Singer to Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley to Bethenny Frankel, each cast member is looking to either rent, sell, or possibly keep property at the moment… which makes for great TV!
So when Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles broker Tracy Tutor appeared on Watch What Happens Live last night, Andy Cohen was quick to ask her opinion of each Housewife’s home in a segment hilariously dubbed, “Get Real Estate.” See what she had to say below, and catch all of her opinions in the video above!
As we know, Ramona’s recently-renovated 2,500-square-foot Upper East Side condo is currently on the market for a cool $4.595 million. What were Tracy’s thoughts on the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath abode? She said she’d list it for $4.5 million — which is pretty dang close to what Ramona is currently asking.
Next up, Tracy tackled the case of Dorinda’s two-bedroom Upper East Side apartment that she moved out of over the summer. Dorinda now lives further downtown and has amazing East River views from a new high-rise apartment, but she still wants to sell her old digs. What’s Tracy’s take on how to proceed? “She needs to gut the kitchen, and replace the floors and maybe stage it,” she said.
It’s true: Sonja has left her beloved 4,650-square-foot Upper East Side townhouse — and she got her full ask of $32,000 a month! But if she wanted to sell the home (or get a higher monthly rental rate), Tracy has some tips. “I mean the townhouse looks amazing and it’s obviously worth quite a bit of money on a monthly basis, but I think she could probably update the furniture a little bit and she might be able to get more money for it.”
Always on the lookout for an investment property, Bethenny purchased a 4,239-square-foot home in Bridgehampton and we've seen her struggling this season to decide whether she sells it or just rents it a couple of months a year. While we know now that Bethenny has listed the property for $2.75 million, Tracy disagrees with that decision. “She’s done a really good job with this house, me personally, I would stay.”
We caught some glimpses of the RHONY newbie’s massive Hamptons home on a recent episode, and while her cast mates thought the home was beautiful, they definitely had some thoughts about Barbara’s questionable design aesthetic… as did Tracy. While it was real estate advice per se, Tracy joked, “I think Barbara should stick to being a contractor and hire a designer"
