Hollywood trade publication Variety recently reported on comedian and actor Tracy Morgan selling his five-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom home in Cresskill at a $1 million loss. The former “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” star sold 275 Truman Drive for $1.2 million on March 22, a steep drop from the $2.25 million that Morgan had sought for the home when it first hit the market back in 2017. The property was bought by Morgan for $2.2 million in 2011, according to NJ.com, which noted that the home’s kitchen was recently redesigned and that its second level features a master suite with a luxury bathroom, three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms. Morgan isn’t the only celebrity looking to divest residential assets in northern New Jersey. NJ.com reported earlier this month on “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Jacqueline Laurita putting her Bergen County mansion on the market at $1.95 million. Property records show that Laurita and her husband paid $1.72 million for the Franklin Lakes property in 2001. And Maksim Chmerkovskiy, a professional dancer and reality television star, also put his 5,200-square-foot Fort Lee home on the market at $2.2 million, according to NJ.com, which cited property records showing that he paid a little more than $1.8 million for the property in 2013. [Variety]
