Recession Blues: Whitney Houston’s $5.6 Million Dollar NJ Mansion is Up for Sale

- By Bossip Staff

Looks like Whitney’s million dollar bills have worn out because her million dollar New Jersey Mansion is up for sale and it’s on the market for less than half of what she paid for it. 

Flip it for the Details

The $5.6 million dollar home where she was married in 1992, has five-bedrooms and is 12,561-sq.-ft. It’s listed as a modern-styled home, full of natural light containing “circular-themed interior spaces,” as well as, a four-car garage, three fireplaces, walk-in closets, a bar and skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows. Damn Whit, the recession got you too boo.

    I’ll bid on it, but do anyone know how to de-crack a house?

  • http://BOSSIP Damn D

    Aww….. I hate to hear that.

  • Kendra Lynn

    she’s selling the house because of the memories there…ya’ll acting like it said foreclosure or something…smdh…

    would u still wanna live there?

  • http://bossip.com This some Shhh...

    Memories? For real? It’s not like she lost a child or a close relative in the house. This is about money.

  • BlackBeauty

    She hasn’t lived there in years. Whitney is fine. With the lifestyle that she and Bobby lived, I bet that the place needs a lot of work.

  • Redemption

    Because she’s selling the house doesn’t mean she’s broke. Could be time to move on. Bobby ain’t there no more with all them other children so that’s a lot of space to fill.

    Why is the glass always half empty? Maybe its not the glass but the writers intellectual capacity.

  • Roabsalom

    Thank you Kendra Lynn & Redemption…so many people even average folks are pulling out of their homes. The value on many large homes have tanked! It’s either keep paying on something that will never be worth what you put or try to short sell and come out a little under.

  • Keepnit2Real

    Man, I wouldn’t buy no house she don’ coked and cracked up in. I don’t want my kids having contacts everday…be like: “Daddy, do cereal s’posed to make me feel like this?” *baby wobbles from side to side with backpack on before school*

    “Baby, call the medics! We got a Code Whitney ova here!”

  • neva a hater

    Her main home is hear in the ATL trust that she is okay and like someome said she’s selling the home not losing it….Just glad that she’s back!

  • No u can't be boyfriend #2!

    What a waste of MONEY!!!!!!!

  • Atl_Finest

    Her main home was always the NJ mansion! Anyone that is a Whitney fan knew that. Now I can understand that she want to down size. There is nothing wrong with that especially if your income has dropped. The Atl home that was featured on Being Bobby Brown was forclosed on. I saw it on the news being sold on the courthouse steps. I read that she is currenting living in Atl so she probably has another home.

  • me

    she does herself a terrible disservice by being defensive. saying things like iiii took a break is ridiculous, you were high as a kite, stop assuming your fans are stupid because no one wants to buy a cd of defensive chick that blew her money

  • Old Timer

    The Coldwell Banker Web site estimates a buyer would have monthly mortgage payments of $10,819 based on a down payment of $500,000 and a 5 percent interest rate on a 30-year, $2 million mortgage. Taxes run you about $60,000 per year.
    ___________________________________

    Hell, I know millions of people with $500,000 sitting around to put a down payment on the house. Yeah right.

  • ROB FROM D.C.

    People the bottome line is she’s selling her home meaning she doesn’t want it anymore. I don’t blame here I would sell also. For those of you calling her a crack head her name is Whitney Houston. Stop being dumb asses!!!! with the negative comments calling one out of character.

    Looks to me like Whitney is just trying to close a long, painful chapter in her life. There is no price tag for peace, so she’s probably ready to let it go – even if she takes a financial hit – for the sake of moving on. I hope she continues with her sobriety and wish her all the best. Team Whitney all the way!

  • happy to be alive

    whatever they are giving her to weene her off the stuff is not working. It’s like she is on Meth!

  • tintin

    just happy to hear it ain’t a foreclosure. that’s all i’m happy for. i woudl sell it too anyways. that was were here lowest times were with the piece of dirt she was married to.

  • happy to be alive

    her dad stopped a foreclosure before he died. It was for the taxes owed on the property.

  • Jezzy

    She’s broke. That is the only reason she tried to “Come Back” which failed miserably. The voice is gone, the money is gone, the opportunities are gone. She’s over and she did it to herself.

  • T

    “get off her ass…the place reminds her of that loser bobby….Whitney has moneyyy, trust!….she is just moving forward, and that house is a reminder of the past.”

  • Lisa

    Whitney’s biggest mistake was to marry a dumb black man.
    I hope she finds a nice wm to give her more love than any bm could.
    Good luck Whitney. We love you forever!!

  • lEAVE-ME-BEE

    AAAHHHH COME ON….. SOME OF YALL TALKING ABOUT YOU WOULDN’T BUY A CRACK HOUSE, FIRST OF ALL YOU COULDN’T AFFORD IT!!!!! AND SECOND, THE HOUSE IS BEAUTIFUL, SHE COULDN’T HAVE BEEN THAT NEGLIGENT TOWARDS THE HOUSE CAUSE SHE STILL OWNS IT, HOW COULD IT GO INTO FORECLOSURE WHEN SHE PAID STRAIGHT UP CA$H FOR IT BACK IN THE DAYS…. A REALLY LOST PERSON WOULD HAVE SOLD THAT TOO, ALOT OF OTHER STARS ARE ON DRUGS TOO SO LET’S BE GLAD ” A GREAT ENTERTAINER LIKE WHITNEY IS BACK AND INSTEAD OF CRITICIZING HER “PAST WE SHOULD EMBRACE” HER FUTURE AND WISH HER ALL THE BEST ! 🙂

  • Well Alright.......

    Whitney Houston isn’t the only one trying to sell their home:

    Eddie Murphy has chopped the asking price of his Englewood, NJ estate to $14,990,000. The 4+ acre Brayton Street estate was originally listed five years ago with an astounding $30,000,000, a price that by December of 2006 was reduced to $22,000,000 and then again to $19,500,000. The colossal Colonial style beast–known by the cutesy name of Bubble Hill–measures 25,000 square feet and contains 32 rooms with 8 bedrooms, 12 terlits in 8 full and 4 half poopers, an indoor swimming pool with an arched glass roof, two lane bowling alley, a paneled billiard room, full sized racquetball court, a professional recording studio, a carriage house with a home gym, at least three fireplaces, garaging for at least 5 autos, and, of course, an elevator because people this rich do not use stairs.
