Man, am I confused. Didn't Benessa have a small, two bedroom house/ Did they move into a slightly larger two bedroom house? At the rate she's producing kids, and don't forget, they want to ADOPT, that'll never be big enough for long!!

Exactly, these reasons and the fact that Jessa has already been looking for houses, make me think that they are going to maybe do some more work on the house and then sell it.

We just enclosed a balcony and turned it into a laundry room upstairs where all our living is with the exception of 1 bedroom and bathroom. It connects to a bathroom and a bedroom. Best addition, ever

Ben's been outspoken against racism for a long time (in whatever sense that means to him - I doubt he has a super nuanced grasp of all the history and subtleties of racism in the U.S.). It's clearly s

I guess I'm in the minority but I think some of the speculation on here is getting a bit over-the-top. We don't know how often Jessa has Jana or any of her other sisters over to help watch the kids. M

This link describes the difference very well.

Some posters are speculating that Benessa will sell the house in order to get a down payment for a bigger place, but we don't actually know.

I can't imagine they would sell to anyone outside the family, with the way the Duggars control their real estate.

Perhaps Benessa could put on an addition. That could be covered on Counting On and thus be paid for by TLC. They could bring in the Wilson family and start the teasing hints of upcoming courtships for 2 sets of twins and Siah. Not sure on the eligible Wilsons...

a new storyline of course - an addition on the top or the side because they need to sell the house and get a bigger one because storyline Jessa is pregnant and scared.... it will never end.

So they must still get along with/look out for Amy, right?

I'm wondering if some sort of deal was worked out by GM Mary and part of it was that Amy got a house. Hmmmm.

Does anyone else think it's sketchy all this buying houses and moving property ownership around is happening all at once?

I was actually wondering if some big thing is going to happen and the real estate shifts are to hide/lessen the financial impact, or if taxes are due/overdue and this is a way to lessen the tax load.

It's also possible that they've been considering the changes for a while, and just decided to file all of the paperwork at the same time. I'm not sure how much work the actual transfers are in Arkansas, but they might have just taken all of the documents in at once rather than having to make multiple trips?

I just spent way too much time on the property site.

So - has anyone else seen that Grandma Duggar bought the house that was just "sold" to the Seewalds from a family named Ruark? Isn't Ruark DQ's maiden name? Any relation? Has this already been discussed?

Yes, that's Me-chelle's maiden name.

Those are Michelle's parents, Garrett and Ethel Ruark.

If you mean the house they lived in after they got married, it was sold. If you mean the guest house, that's where Derick and Jill currently are.

I wonder if everything is okay with Grandma Duggar?  I was reviewing all the changes with my mom who used to work as a real estate settlement processor and it sounds like that is all estate planning... divvying properties, etc?

Though there is the one that went to her for $393K, so maybe this is off.

Yikes. No shirt? Nike. I remember the Duggar boys had to wear wet suits. Wonder if Jesse still wears wholesome wear. Spurgie is adorable.

Rurak is Michelle's maiden name. Putting things into a trust....hmmmmmmm

Could that property in some way have been set aside for Tyler?

Jim-Bob has said all along that they bought the property because there was room for any child who wanted to to build a house out there.  It will be interesting to see who does.

Where are Joshey and Anna and M Kids living? Still with JB/M or elsewhere?

Joe and Kendra will need a house, too.  I keep thinking of the "trashed" house they cleaned up several years ago--same time they "learned" to do carpet on Jilly's "mansion"...

She was swimming in board shorts and a t-shirt a couple years ago, so I'm going to guess she doesn't wear wholesome wear these days. I feel like the board shorts/t-shirt combo would probably be a lot cheaper, too.

No, the little house that Jessa and Ben now own was puchased by Michelle's parents in 1990 after the previous owners defaulted on the mortgage. In 2007 Michelle's father sold the house to Grandma Duggar and in June Grandma Duggar sold it to Jessa and Ben.

The trust is the James R and Michelle A Duggar Revocable Living Trust, unless Tyler has been added as a beneficiary of the trust he has nothing to do with it.

Based on the photos from one of the M-boy's birthday in June, Josh and Anna are living in the Siloam Springs house that was "sold" to an LLC right before Josh went to Jesus Jail.

The only trashed house I remember them fixing up was Jilly's mansion which was sold in 2015, but Lord knows the Duggars have enough other properties.

Maybe he's that kid who takes the diaper off every chance he gets and the trunks slow him down?

I bought my first house at 24 without a college degree or any internships. Degrees ≠ ability to buy a house.

seriously. COL in different areas can be super drastically different as well. My husband and I bought our first home at 20, when he was still in college. It was 150k and the perfect house for us to eventually start a family in (and then we moved and the cheapest house we can buy ten years later is more than double- damn housing prices!)

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
