Vicki Gunvalson Is Selling Her Coto de Caza Home For $3.4 Million! Plus Vicki Reveals The Reason Why She’s Selling Her OC Home After 20 Years!

Following her exit from The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson has put her Coto de Caza home on the market.

According to the O.C. Register, the former Bravo reality star listed the 5,456-square-foot home for $3.35 million. Gunvalson's home was featured on RHOC for fourteen seasons. She bought the five-bedroom and five-bathroom home for a reported $1.1 million with then-husband Donn Gunvalson in 2000.

Gunvalson explained the reason why she decided to move out of Coto de Caza after 20 years.

“As those who have followed my journey for a long time know, I have lived in Coto de Caza in Orange County for over 26 years,” Gunvalson told CELEB. “The Real Housewives of Orange County began with its first scene in my house working selling insurance from my home office. My children, Michael and Briana, were raised in this house and my 1st grandson Troy came home from the hospital here after being born, and lived here while Ryan [Briana’s husband] was deployed.”

“I went through a marriage in the house,” Gunvalson continued. “I went through a divorce while in this house. I went through another relationship and a breakup in this house. Finally, I got into a new relationship that has resulted in me being engaged to Steve living with me in this house. Wow, what a journey.”

“Unfortunately,” Gunvalson revealed, “it is time for me to move on. My kids are both grown up now and rarely come over. Briana is expecting baby boy number three and lives in North Carolina. Michael is in a happy relationship and lives on his own in San Diego and, due to their busy work schedules, I rarely see him as well.”

“Also, as I recently shared, I purchased a new home in Puerto Vallarta which I love,” Gunvalson added. “That home is my serenity, as it’s so peaceful, quiet, and relaxing and is now equipped with a fully-functional remote office. I will be able to do my ‘Whoop It Up Podcast’ from there as well as my new radio show which will be about women, money, and retirement planning.”

Gunvalson had more to state, sharing that “My business is in a great place (despite COVID) and lots of exciting things are happening with Coto Insurance too.”

“It is for all these reasons- and more, and after lots of prayers that I have ultimately decided to sell my house and it will officially hit the MLS market tomorrow,” Gunvalson told the outlet. “As you can imagine, this was not an easy decision to make, as I do have so many memories in this home and I love it so much.”

“I am lucky, though,” Gunvalson lamented, “as many of these memories were captured on The Real Housewives and I will always be able to look back at them. My house is over 5000 square feet and will be priced at $3.35 million dollars. At this point in my life, I don’t need to maintain that much space for just myself and Steve.”

“As far as where the future will take us once my home sells,” Gunvalson told CELEB. “We are considering many options. Perhaps we will get a place in North Carolina, to be closer to Briana and her family, as I can now run my businesses remotely. I envision splitting time between Puerto Vallarta, North Carolina, and California.”

“Steve’s family is all here in California,” Gunvalson added, “so I’m sure we will always maintain a home here, but it doesn’t have to be as large as this one is. I’m looking for something with less space and less maintenance, so we can ‘lock and go.’”

She concluded, “I will forever be grateful for all of the memories I have made here and, while this certainly was not an easy decision to make, I am confident that it is the right one at this point in my life. I have always appreciated all the support and love from my fans, and I look forward to taking you on this next part of my journey with Steve and me.”

Gunvalson’s decision to sell her Orange County estate comes after she purchased a condo in her beloved Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. She announced she closed on her “vacation/retirement house” in May.

Two months later, Gunvalson confirmed she officially moved into her new home. “I took a leap of faith, I ended up closing on a condo last month and I got here last night. And I thought you know what? This was what was meant to be,” she said via her Instagram Stories in July, showing off her new ocean view, according to Us Weekly.
