Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, stars of the reality TV show “19 Kids and Counting,” have successfully flipped one heck of a house. A Northwest Arkansas mansion renovated by the famous family sold in mid-February for $1.53 million.
The couple purchased the 10,000-square-foot residence in Springdale, AR, for $230,000 in November 2014. At that time, the oversize mansion was in sad shape.
The Duggars proceeded to work their magic, transforming the once run-down residence into a luxe estate. They hoisted it onto the market for a hefty $1.8 million last May.
The mansion had its price shaved to $1.65 million soon after its initial splash on the market. By July, the Duggars had discounted it to $1.45 million, before reducing the price even further to $1.1 million in September.
It disappeared from the market for a bit last fall, and in December, the couple relisted the home and bumped up the asking to $1.38 million.
Why? Well, when we first laid eyes on the family’s handiwork nearly a year ago, the enormous home was sparkling — but empty and a bit cavernous.
For its return to the market in December, it was rephotographed and stylishly staged. With four bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and an abundance of other rooms, the home takes a lot of furniture to make it feel homey.
