Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard are selling their $279,900 Arkansas home, as the couple reveals that they are moving for Derick’s new job.

Earlier this month, news broke that University of Arkansas School of Law graduate Derick, 33, had passed the Arkansas bar exam — and now he has accepted his first official job as a lawyer.

The new job means relocation for the family-of-four — soon to be five — and both Jill, 30, and Derick announced on Instagram and their family blog today that they have put their house on the market.

According to a real estate listing, their home — located in Lowell about 12 miles away from Jill’s parents in Springdale — has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and measures 1,486 square feet.

‘We are joining the masses of people who are currently navigating this crazy real estate market…we are moving!!’ the couple wrote on their website today.

‘We are sad to say goodbye to our very first home that we bought three years ago, but pray it brings much joy to the next family who will get to make memories here.’

‘We are moving for a new job Derick recently accepted and are super excited for new adventures!’ they concluded.

Though the Dillards didn’t share more details about Derick’s job, it is likely still located in the state of Arkansas, where Derick passed the bar. To practice in another state, he would need to take that state’s bar exam as well.

And while Jill has admitted that she hasn’t been to her parents’ house in Springdale in years, they do see a bit of Derick’s mother, Cathy, who also lives in Arkansas.

Jill and Derick bought their current house in 2019, prior to which they lived in a home owned by her father, Jim Bob. 

The bring house, which has a black front door and matching shutters, features a covered back patio, a fenced backyard, and plenty of plants — including an Arkansas black apple tree, a blackberry bush, strawberries, and sugar snap peas.

It’s a short drive from the elementary school where the couple’s oldest son, Israel, is enrolled in the first grade.

Jill had regularly shared photos and videos from inside her home, but new images from the real estate listing offer a comprehensive look at the interiors.

Their living room has gray carpeting, brown leather sofas, and a brown piano, topped with a trumpet. Other instruments, including a guitar and a violin, hang from the wall nearby.

While Derick's new job has no doubt inspired the move, the Dillards are also likely looking for a bigger space now that they have a third child on the way

There is also a chalk board on one wall, a shelf of children’s books, and throw pillows — including one with the phrase ‘be happy.’ 

The living room is connected to an eat-in kitchen decorated with plants. Another chalk board has been inscribed with the words ‘He is able,’ while a sign on the wall quotes Acts 2:46-47: ‘They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.’

An office where Derick has been seen working has a bookshelf, desk, and a harp, while the master bedroom is filled with an antique-looking four-poster bed.

The children’s room has bunk beds, with a dresser and chair.

In February, they revealed that Jill is pregnant with baby number three, after previously sharing that she had suffered a miscarriage last fall.

In March, they added that six-year-old Israel and four-year-old Samuel are getting a baby brother in July.

‘We had originally planned on finding out our baby’s gender earlier, a couple weeks ago, but Covid hit our family and we had to delay the exciting revelation,’ they said. 

‘However, this turned out to be a blessing in disguise because by the time we were able to reschedule, Israel was on spring break. This meant our whole family could be together for the appointment, as we all found out together that another little boy would be joining the Dillard tribe!

‘We decided to make a special day of it by starting off by eating breakfast together at a local restaurant called the Buttered Biscuit. Then we did a little shopping before heading to our appointment to learn the exciting news. 

‘We are thankful to have a healthy baby boy due in July! Your continued prayers are much appreciated,’ they concluded.
