Her husband Offset bought her a $1.5 million investment property in the Dominican Republic as a birthday present earlier in October.

And now Cardi B and Offset are expanding their real estate holdings by purchasing a new house in New York City.

The 29-year-old rap sensation shared a photo of herself taking in the view by her new grand staircase on Tuesday as she celebrated finally having a house of her own in her 'home city.'

Cardi had toned down her often-color looks with black slacks and knee-high black boots, though she added an eye-catching leopard-print hooded coat and a matching beret to her look.

She stood with her back to the camera but turned her head to face it as she raised her hands toward the elegant staircase surrounding her. 

The WAP rapper appeared to be standing in the home's front entrance, which featured pale hardwood floors and had two curving staircases on either side of her leading up to a balcony overlooking the entrance.

The space featured brilliant white walls, but it was clearly ready for a makeover, as buckets of paint were stacked against a wall in the background.

Cardi wrote in her caption that it was a dream come true to have a place to herself in her hometown, though her busy touring schedule made it hard to classify any city as her home base.  

'These days I don’t just live one place, I’m everywhere due to my work,' she explained. 'One thing for sure I needed a home in my home city of NY!

'I’m soo proud of myself,' she gushed. 'I work so hard for my children to be comfortable everywhere they are regardless of work. Me and my husband have always dreamed of having a crib in NY, and we have decided to add to our portfolio of homes, along with Atlanta and LA.'

Part of the appeal of a New York home was being so much closer to family. 

'Now having a home in NY, I can have get togethers with my family all the time!!' she wrote. 'I have accomplished so many things yet I still feel far from all the goals I want to accomplish. This is one dream I can cross off…..'

Cardi joked at the end that her fans should 'Let me know if ya’ll want a mini tour!'

Later on Tuesday in a since-deleted tweet, she shared an exterior photo of the property's guest house and revealed she had been negotiating on the property since May. 

She was quoting an earlier tweet noting that some social media users had complained about Cardi's home purchase and the news that she would host the American Music Awards.

'Really ?been in negotiations of this house since May !' she tweeted.

'This is in July as the date shows when the guess [sic] house finally was finish(yes this is the guess [sic] house),' she wrote, adding that she had 'been in talks about Amas since September.'

So far, Cardi hasn't shared any more views of her new home, though she may be waiting until it's renovated to her liking.

The new home comes at a perfect time, as she and Offset welcomed their second child, a baby boy whose named hasn't yet been revealed, in early September.

The couple already share their three-year-old daughter Kulture.

Cardi and Offset seem to be on a buying spree, as the Migos member presented her with an investment property in the Dominican Republic earlier this month as a birthday present.

Their new $1.5 million villa is located in a tony neighborhood and features six bedrooms and an equal number of bathrooms across 7,000 square feet, along with a separate studio and two pools on the 0.37-acre property to help beat the heat.

Offset bought the villa via the Brandi Hunter Luxury Group, and he posed with company owner Brandi Hunter-Lewis in an Instagram photo to celebrate his wife's gift.

On Instagram, Cardi revealed that she'd been hoping to focus on 'short term home rental properties,' which her husband's gift would help her accomplish.

'For a hot minute now I've been telling Set that I really want to invest in short term home rental properties in the DR and other Caribbean countries (since people vacation all year around in those locations), but I felt like he didn't agree with me and would rather put money into other investments,' she wrote.

'Well, I was wrong. I just can't believe this! This was sooo amazing to me,' she gushed. 'For one, I’m so happy that you were actually really listening to me and not just smiling and nodding your head so I could stop talkin to you about it. 

'Two, you don’t think my investment ideas are wack and three, I love that you asked my dad to work with you on this. You and my dad (and the [mother holding baby emoji]) are the most important men in my life and it makes me so happy that you guys are close and have your own bond and relationship,' she concluded.

Back in 2019, the rapping couple purchased an enormous mansion in Atlanta for just under $5.8 million.

Although she mentioned a home in Los Angeles in her caption, it's not clear that the two have purchased a West Coast home yet, though it may be next in their sights.

Back in 2017, Cardi described living in an apartment in Edgewater, New Jersey, in a profile for The Fader.

The apartment was a half-hour drive from New York under the best traffic conditions, and her rent was $3,000 per month, far less than she would have paid for an apartment of similar size in New York.

However, as Cardi has had several hit singles and the acclaimed album Invasion Of Privacy, she can now afford more lavish homes across the country.
