Vicki Gunvalson is already saying goodbye to the lake-house life.

The Real Housewives of Orange County alum, 58, took to Instagram on Sunday to announce that she "got a full price offer" on her North Carolina log home after having it on the market for just one day.

"I love renovating homes and this shows you can do it too," the Coto Insurance CEO wrote, captioning a post of quotes about "Things People Learn Too Late" from business magnate Warren Buffett. She also added the hashtags, "#investmentproperty," "#ontothenextproject" and "#byebyeNC."

Gunvalson revealed on Instagram in August that she had bought the home — without seeing it in person first — so she could be closer to her daughter, Briana, and her grandkids, but made clear that it would not be her primary residence.

In the comments section on Sunday's post, the Bravo star told fans that she had decided to sell the home because her daughter's family will be moving from North Carolina to Oklahoma, as her son-in-law got a new job.

She also noted that they had originally been planning to stay in North Carolina for a while, so the decision to sell the home, which Gunvalson had been renovating for herself, was not planned far in advance. When a fan commented that "Oklahoma is not a bad place to live," Gunvalson replied, "Absolutely and the schools are OPEN."

"Everyone is happy," she replied to a fan who commented that they thought she'd get more than the asking price.

In December, Gunvalson showed off her brand-new vacation digs on Instagram, revealing that the look inside the North Carolina home came together with the help of furniture designer Cindy Shockey.

The photos Gunvalson shared in a slideshow depicted a warmly lit living room, a cozy seating area with four armchairs surrounding a small table, two bedrooms with single beds, one space with bunk beds, the kitchen and dining room areas, and a crackling fireplace.

In another post, the Bravo star shared a photo of her front porch, complete with a dark-wood bench and pillows that read, "What Happens on the Porch Stays on the Porch" and "Porch Sweet Porch."

"Well after spending almost 3 weeks in NC, I welcomed my beautiful newest grandson Hank into the world and was able to get my lake house completed with all of the furniture and accessories," she captioned the gallery. "Thanks to @cindyshockey for her incredible vision to create the look that I envisioned. Looking forward to creating many memories with my family and friends here. #family #vacationhome #lakehome #lakelife #blessed"

When Gunvalson first revealed on Instagram in August that she had bought the home, she wrote, "It's the year of following my heart AND my head" alongside a series of photographs.

One photo featured an outside view of the waterside home, while another featured a stunning pink and purple sunset.

"Three months ago I closed on an incredible vacation home in Puerto Vallarta and this most recent purchase in North Carolina for a vacation / rental home solidifies my goals," the reality star continued.

"Being near my family at a vacation/lake home to create lifelong memories makes my heart happy. Isn't that what life is all about?" Gunvalson added.

Gunvalson purchased a "vacation/retirement" home in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, in May. She moved into the home in July, calling it "a leap of faith."

"Although I was apprehensive to go through with it, I have to tell you all it was one of my best decisions," she added of the purchase, sharing in August that the condo was "coming together nicely."

Earlier that month, Gunvalson put her Coto de Caza, California, residence on the market for $3.35 million, the Los Angeles Times reported. The five-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom, two-story house was built in 1995 and contains an office, a center-island kitchen and formal living and dining rooms off the entry, as well as a family room with a wet bar.
