Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan tried to unload her infamous townhouse, but after eight years and no sale, she has taken it off the market. For years Sonja has struggled to sell the Upper East Side home which has become a money pit.
She shared some of her townhouse woes on the show and divulged that upkeep for the property was costing her a lot of money. Sadly Sonja’s hope of unloading the property is not going well.
Sonja Morgan’s townhouse taken off market after 8 years
The Real Housewives of New York star is known for two things, her interns and her townhouse and right now she’s hanging on to both.
Sonja first tried to release herself from the financial burden that comes with owning the Manhattan property back in 2013, according to a report from The Post. She initially listed the townhouse at $9.5 million but over the years it has seen several price cuts.
By 2015, the price had been slashed down to $7.2 million but there were still no offers. Then, in 2018, Sonja decided to rent the space for $32,000 per month but that didn’t last very long. The RHONY star decided to do some extensive remodeling on the five-story residence before relisting it in the summer of 2020 for $8.75 million.
However, after a year without any prospects, the house has been removed from the market once again.
This is just one issue in a chain of unfortunate events for Sonja, who revealed recently that her fashion line is no longer being sold in Century 21 stores since the discount chain had to file for bankruptcy.
