Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi doubled her investment on a New Jersey beach house, property records show.
The former “Jersey Shore” star and her husband, Jionni LaValle, purchased the five-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom home in Brick for $370,000 in November 2015 and sold it for exactly twice that much on Jan. 21, property records show.
Then they put “sweat equity” into the 4,792-square-foot home, a process they documented in a 2016 nine-episode series “Nicole & Jionni’s Shore Flip.”
“This house was perfect [for a quick flip],” 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,” she said.
“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 floor 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.
On the second floor, the primary bedroom suite has barn-door closets, a balcony and a large bathroom, according to Realtor.com.
The third floor has space for a playroom, a media room or a family room, according to the listing.

The house was built in 2005 on a 0.11-acre lot that sits directly on a canal and is only yards from the ocean. It has a boat lift, bulkhead and trek dock, according to Realtor.com.
The sale was not recorded on listing sites but showed up on property records. The house had most recently been listed by Janet and Bill Marcellino with Weichert Realtors, Sea Girt, according to Realtor.com.
