‘Counting On’: Jason Duggar Just Sold a $234,000 Home
Jason Duggar is following in his dad’s footsteps. Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar’s 12th child has gone into the real estate business like his father before him. Though he is only 20 years old, he’s already scored some big successes, including selling an Arkansas home he built himself for the full asking price.
Jason Duggar just sold a house for $234K
Jason celebrated his 20th birthday in April. Soon after, he scored a big real estate win. A home he built from the ground up in Bella Vista, Arkansas, sold for $233,950 in early July. The three-bedroom home on a third of an acre was listed in late May and went for the full asking price, according to Realtor.com.
“Beautiful new construction on a quiet dead in street,” reads the listing. “Home features an open concept, stainless steel appliances, wood floors in entire home, city sewer, Bentonville schools, and lots more!”
Jason Duggar was flipping houses before he was old enough to vote
Jason might be young, but the big sale wasn’t his first foray into real estate. When he was 16 years old, he bought a $33,000 fixer-upper with the help of his dad. He spent the next year working on the house before selling it for $167,000 in June 2018, according to Radar.
Jim Bob and Michelle couldn’t be prouder of their son. “It’s hard to believe you are already out of your teen years, and running your own business!” they wrote in an Instagram post celebrating his birthday.
Jim Bob Duggar recently sold a $1.5 million mansion
Jason is hardly the only Duggar to try his hand at real estate. Early in their marriage, Jim Bob and Michelle began investing in real estate to support their growing family, as they explained in their book, The Duggars: 20 and Counting. Over the years, they’ve continued to buy and sell both commercial and residential properties.
Earlier this year, the Duggars sold a massive Arkansas mansion for $1.53 million. In November 2014, they bought the 10-square-foot home and one other bank-owned home for the bargain-basement price of $360,000. But the Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home needed a ton of work. The Baylor Mansion finally went on the market in 2019 with an asking price of $1.8 million. But there were no takers. The price was slashed several times before the house finally sold for $1.53 million in February 2020.
Getting the home ready to sell was a family project, a representative for the Duggars told Today.
“The Duggars have a long history of real estate, long before they were even on TV,” the spokesperson said. “This was by far their biggest real estate project — the biggest flip and the biggest challenge. They had a lot of fun as a family doing it together.”
