Little Bates Close on First Home

Zach and Whitney Bates

Zach and Whitney Bates are homeowners! They purchased their first home at the end of last year and will be sharing their journey with fans this Thursday on Bringing Up Bates. The property has a beautiful view (photo above), but the house itself needs a ton of work.

  3. We bought our first home in 2016 and was so exciting. House hunting in the middle of AZ monsoon season wasn't exciting.

  4. Congrats on your new home. You can fix it up the way you want to have it and not worry about landlords because you are the landlord.

  7. Yes, congratulations to this nice couple. However, I have to ask, do they have a mortgage? Did they pay cash? If not, how do they justify going 'in to debt'? The parents highly publicized their religious beliefs do not include financing anything. I think Gil and Kelly are seeing that their fantasy way of living just doesn't work in the real world...even to those who are religious.

      I was gonna ask the same thing. Maybe they realized that if their mortgage payments are similar to their rent payments, it makes no difference, except that it actually leads to it being paid off?

    2. Godly-Young-Widow, it's good to see a comment from you again. I remember you would post such godly wisdom and I missed seeing that from you.

    3. In the real world, most people don't have a well-paying TV show. Likely, the Bates are living more comfortably financially. Perhaps Zach and Whitney got a good deal and were able to pay cash. I don't see anything wrong with taking out a mortgage, as long as you don't bite off more than you can chew. Interest rates have been very good and your payments will likely be less than rent. I do question the wisdom of taking out second mortgages or home-equity loans. Too often, people use the money for things other than home improvement. Debt can pile up on you in a hurry.

    4. How they pay for their house is their business, not ours.
