Cardi B is amassing an A-Plus real estate portfolio: let’s take a look inside!
Cardi B has garnered a lot of praise since bursting onto the music scene five years ago.
The “queen of hip-hop”, as Halle berry called her, won a Grammy, reached No. 1 with her debut album, and topped the charts with an array of hit singles as well.
When she’s not winning any awards and racking up streams on Spotify, she’s busy collecting real estate.
We wanted to take a look at the places the rapper extraordinary likes to call his home.
Lucky for us, 29-year-old Cardi B, who made her social media debut, splashed her new purchases on her Instagram account.
Manoir des mouches in Tenafly
Recently, rumors have circulated that the rapper (birth name Belcalis Almanzar), who was born and raised in New York City, had found a place in her hometown.
In early November, she posed in front of a double staircase in a newly built house.
“Now having a home in New York, I can have reunions with my family all the time! I have accomplished so much but still feel far from all the goals I want to accomplish. This is a dream I can cross… Let me know if you want a mini tour!
We would love for her to guide us on a tour, but we would need to take a trip to New Jersey.
The house, although close to where she grew up in Washington Heights, is actually across the New York Bridge in Tenafly, NJ.
Purchased for $ 5.85 million in September, the all-new construction offers nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a cinema room, a swimming pool and a tennis court. Rapper “WAP” Invests Additional $ 1 Million in Improvements, According to New York Post.
This is not the first time that the top of the charts has moved to Jersey. She apparently lived in a $ 3,000-per-month rental in Edgewater, NJ, in 2017 because, as she told the Fader, she would pay double for a similar-sized New York apartment.

‘Up’ in ATL
How’s that for happy holidays? Cardi B and her rapper husband, Offset, bought themselves a home in the Atlanta area in 2019.
Cardi’s house was on the market for $ 5,795,000 before her husband gave it to her just before Christmas a few years ago.
After the purchase, the proud owners offered several mansion tours on Instagram.
The former reality TV star credited their real estate agent, Brandi hunter-lewis of Compass, successfully ending a two-year search for the perfect property.
As to why the house hunt took so long? Supposedly, the couple couldn’t agree on a home they both loved.
There is, however, a lot to love about the area they ended up with. Built in 2006, the five-bedroom home they chose measures 22,000 square feet on a large 5.84-acre lot.
As we reported at the time, its highlights include marble floors, high ceilings, a double island kitchen, game room, bar, wine cellar, and shooting range.
The gift of house seems to be a family tradition. Cardi would have gave her mother a home in New Jersey in 2018. The “dream home” includes eight bedrooms, a finished basement and a home theater. It cost the good girl $ 1.5 million.
Cardi B in Dominican Republic
Speaking of gifts, here’s a real birthday present: Offset surprised his wife with a real estate investment in the Dominican Republic. Apparently that’s exactly what she wanted!
Cardi posted a video of the magnificent mansion on Instagram, adding, “For a minute now, I’ve been telling Set that I really want to invest in short-term rental properties in the Dominican Republic and other countries in the Caribbean.”
Wish granted! The star of the “Hustlers”, whose father is Dominican, is now the proud owner of a hilltop mansion in the Caribbean country.
His four-story, six-bedroom mansion features an open floor plan, a swimming pool, and stunning views. Its interior, covering 8,000 square feet, features waxed concrete floors, walls of windows and elegant finishes. The 4-acre space also includes a gym, indoor pool, and separate studio.

Real estate agent Hunter-Lewis also assisted with this purchase. She job on his Instagram account:
“@offsetyrn – the thoughtfulness behind this incredible birthday gift to your beautiful wife @iamcardib is so endearing. You listened to her – something she always wanted to do, own a REVENUE-PRODUCING investment property in R&D! Then you have masterfully put a plan in place. It was you who did it !!!”
