Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has doubled her cash on the sale of her New Jersey seaside home, property data present.
The previous “Jersey Shore” star and her husband, Jionni LaValle, bought the five-bedroom, Two-and-a-half-bathroom dwelling in Brick for $504,000 (US$370,000) in November 2015 — and not too long ago offered it for $1.01 million (US$740k), The Publish studies.

The couple put plenty of “sweat equity” into the 445 sqm home, a process they documented in a 2016 nine-episode series “Nicole & Jionni’s Shore Flip.”
“This house was perfect,” Polizzi told The Post when the show premiered.
The top renovations were rectifying water damage, redoing the deck and the plumbing, and updating the interior, she said.
Even though renovation costs likely cut into the profit, the pair employed a friend as a contractor and worked on the home five or six days a week — plus, profits from the show likely helped offset renovation costs.
“We’re already trying to buy another house right now to flip,” she said. “If the [series] goes well and they want to do another season, of course we’ll do another one.”
It wasn’t the couple’s first project together. They had experience from when they built their primary residence in Florham Park “from scratch,” said Snooki, who recently purchased an $865,000 Toms River home with a salt water pool, tiki hut and 3m-deep lagoon.
“That’s what made us fall in love with it,” she told The Post. “Jionni was all about the construction and moving rooms around, making them smaller and bigger. Then once it was all done, I came in and designed everything. It’s really fun; it’s a hobby of ours.”
The new owner is a health care administrator and registered nurse at New York Presbyterian Hospital, property records show.

The home’s first level has an open floor plan with a living room, a wet bar, a gas fireplace, a dining room, a den and an eat-in kitchen with granite countertops, according to the listing.

The third level has space for a playroom, a media room or a family room.
The house was built in 2005 on a 445 sqm lot that sits directly on a canal and is only metres from the ocean. It has a boat lift, bulkhead and trek dock, according to Realtor.com.
