Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are moving on from their posh Bel-Air mansion and the property is now in escrow, according to new reports.
The couple – who are both awaiting sentencing for their roles in the infamous college admissions scandal after pleading guilty in May — is said to have entertained a number of offers for the palatial Spanish-style estate, settling on a number that still nets them a profit on the property, a source told “Entertainment Tonight” on Monday.
Loughlin, 55, and Giannulli, 57, listed their Bel Air home in January for $28.65 million, the outlet reported, but sold the sprawling mansion for an estimated $18 million to Tinder co-founder Justin Mateen, according to Variety, which cited sources in identifying the estimated sale price.

In January when Loughlin and Giannilli first listed their home on the market, an insider told “Entertainment Tonight” at the time that folks were “shocked” at their decision and noted that even though they’ve “wanted to sell their home for a long time,” it simply “hasn’t been a priority.”
Variety reported the couple paid $14 million for the home.

The insider also relayed to “Entertainment Tonight” that the actress and fashion designer “have been through so much in the last year” and putting the home up for sale was “one step they are taking in an attempt to get back to their normal lives.”
The couple also recently parted ways with the Bel-Air Country Club, TMZ reported last month. The club’s board voted unanimously to suspend their memberships in the wake of the guilty plea, but to allow them to return after serving their prison terms.
The duo has been accused of arranging a total collective payment of $500,000 to William “Rick” Singer to get their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella, recruited to the University of Southern California (USC) as athletes on the crew team, despite never having participated in the sport.
