Teen Mom 2 couple, Jo and Vee Rivera, have dropped $650k to purchase their dream home in Delaware.
The 3911 square foot, four bedroom, four bath home features a basketball court and a gorgeous pool. The house boasts a huge kitchen, a living room with a brick fireplace, a workout room, and a game room complete with a pool table. Two sliding doors that open from the massive kitchen lead to a beautiful patio space. A large master bedroom and three smaller bedrooms are located on the second floor. The property has a large backyard, an extra buildable lot, a two-car garage, and a basketball court. An outdoor fireplace sits alongside the in-ground pool.
Jo and Vee spoke about their new home during an episode of the podcast Vee co-hosts with Kailyn Lowry, ‘Baby Mamas No Drama.’ Kailyn shares her oldest child, Isaac, with Jo. The podcasters invited him on their show to gush over the couple’s massive new house.
Jo explained that their original plan was to buy property to build their dream home, but they later decided that the process “wasn’t for them.” He spotted the listing on Facebook and snapped up the house, giving up their plan to build from the ground up.
Jo currently owns 12 homes, as part of his real estate holdings. The Sun reported in November 2021 that the MTV dad’s real estate was worth $1,020,250.
Jo and Vee purchased their current home, a 2480 square foot, four bedroom, three bath house, in 2015 for $186k. Vee updated fans as they remodeled the property, sharing photos of their progress on social media.
Jo, who launched Rivera Property Group LLC in 2017, spent $65k in May 2017 on one property, which he rents for a monthly $1350. In July 2017, Joe purchased a three-bedroom, two-bath home for $100k. That home also rents for $1350. In August of that same year, Jo purchased another house for $127,900, which he rents for $1400 a month. In May 2019, Jo bought a property for $53k, which has not been sold or rented. He also purchased two other properties, one of which he rents for $1350 a month.
In August 2020, Jo paid $94k on a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home, and in June 2021 he dropped $35k on another three-bedroom, two-bath house. He bought another home for $103,350 in August, then purchased an acre of land for $85k, in September.
Vee has a real estate license, which allows her to work with her husband. Jo shared about the couple’s work dynamic during a past podcast appearance.
“I am not a real estate agent,” he said. “I actually cannot do some of the things I do if I did have a real estate license in the state of Delaware. There are some regulations that don’t allow you to sign contracts, purchase properties in certain types of ways.”
“We had Vee get a real estate license so we can act as two separate parts and work together. Keep some money in the house!”
“I was looking at 30, 40, 50 houses a month, making 10 offers a week, it was insane,” he added. “I did that for two to three months. We ended up getting three offers accepted in one shot.”
“I had set a goal of having bought 55 units in the next three years, which I have almost accomplished at this point.”
