They obviously are not planning in downsizing too much Katie mentioned in the livestream that they still want a house larger than their previous home which was at least 2500 sq ft. Correct me if I am wrong, she also mentioned possibly renting to save more money? So they are "downsizing" but not really it is obvious they are just looking to buy a less expensive home. Which is fine but I don't know why they have to pretend it's mostly because the home is too large. They must still think that Yt will start bringing in more income again.

Renting to own is one thing, but just renting to save money is not smart. You're practically throwing away money which could be earned towards a mortgage. Typical Katie... switching up the story to actually do wanting a large house, just a tad smaller than what they have. Oy, they don't know what they want, just not the price tag that comes along with it.

Does anyone know what the HOA fees are for their current neighborhood? I don't remember if it was ever discussed, just wondering if they are high.

She also talked about coming to the realization that they don't need a large home yet she said they want a home larger than their previous home. I am from Ohio and 2500 sq ft is a large home their current home is over 5000. I know real estate is cheaper in Alabama than other parts of the country but she is just killing me with this while "living in a smaller home" mantra. 2500 to 3000 sq ft is considered a large home for the average american. I hope they are truly changing their spending habits and their ideas about success and happiness because having all of those "things" that were once so important to Katie don't bring happiness but I just don't buy it. She also kind of admitted that they had to work harder the past months to pay their bills, and how they "had to work" I think basically saying they were living paycheck to paycheck. I just don't understand when they will get that wake up call that yt is not a reliable income and one of them needs to grow up and get a job. They are so hard to relate to now a days.

Ok, sorry for all these posts. Why does Katie have a moderator named Holly Adams for the Live Chat? Not sure how live chats work so it was weird to see that...

It all depends on how cheap you go on rent. Not to mention all the up keep a house you own needs.

I guess this is why she only did the live on YT this time. Having someone controlling your comments doesn’t exactly seem very open.

Renting might not be a good investment, but they prob can’t afford all that comes with being a homeowner. For example HOA dues and any out of the ordinary maintenance. There are pros and cons to both owning and renting.

Here's a theory. The HOA are kicking them out due to them breaking rules with the dogs on the course ect.

I have been checking out the HOA fees. It looks like the basics are under $50 a month. You go up from there for golf access/pool/ gym/etc.

Did she answer anything interesting in her Q&A? Want to watch but not if it’s her skimming over all the real questions.

I think she was pretty vague with her answers.
They have not decided what size house they want they just want a specific layout.

They can't start the buying process for a new house until this one sells.

If the house sells quickly they could rent or stay with family

They want to take their time finding the perfect home because last time they rushed.

Gaines is perfect and understands everything and agrees with them a small house would be perfect and asks so many questions. Brooks doesn't care or understand.

Someone asked if they would look near Britney and I thought Katie was being kind of uppity with her answer. She said that the houses are nice but she didn't sound convinced. Which is what leads me to believe they will still be in a large home. A house like Brittney's would be perfect for a family of four. She said she wasn't sure about the square footage of either house but said they want a house bigger than the last but smaller than this one with an open concept.

They would buys new if there was a new build that was already built so they would not have to make decisions.

She didn't seem to worried about staying in the same school district which surprised me.

She talked about how crazy their spending was getting and how they didn't care about saving money anymore.

Sorry that is all I remember, she seemed to be pretty honest with the questions she answered but she chose which question answer and the live chat was monitored so no really juicy questions got asked.

Anyone who does live videos on YouTube can appoint moderators to delete inappropriate comments and mute the people making them.

when she talked about moving to Britney's neighborhood, she said something/alluded to the fact that they like the houses in the neighborhood but living there wouldn't be a good idea because of where it is and then seemed to get flustered and talked about how she didn't want to get into "personal" stuff. I immediately thought that maybe Cullen's old dealer lived our that way and that's why the location wouldn't work.

Thanks for the recap! I can’t believe they just said screw it with saving and let their spending get so out of control, especially with 2 kids!!

The house just went live, $695,000.

It is the 2nd most expensive house in the neighborhood. There is no way they will sell it.

Wow that house is just enormous but just not in a good way at all. The only family I could see that house suiting is a rich professional husband/ homemaker wife with great decorating skills who have 4+ children....and maybe also a grandparent who lives with them because there is enough space to make a self contained apartment within the house. Don't forget the huge basement thats not in the pictures either. It has potential to be a really nice traditional southern home but a lot of time and money would be needed.

It is too overpriced for something that still requires a lot of updating. Also the pictures really show how the wood floors, paint colour and their furniture don't go together. The whole lot just really didn't work together.


Katies livestream: I got the impression that she anticipates renting/ staying with family for a couple of months. Emphasis on the word "she" because 1. Cullen wasn't in the video but more importantly I wonder if she doesn't wanna buy something with Cullen immediately because she is still considering leaving him? Katie is not the type to be chill about not having a house and particularly so with Gaines going to school and all that. I would think she would want to be living in a particular school district and Gaines mixing with the other kids asap. It just seems out of character that that is not top of her list right now.

The house actually looks much nicer compared to when they bought it. They did a nice job staging it but it is still very dated in some ways. Asking 50,000 more than they purchased it for 2 years earlier is kind of crazy. All they did was paint and renovate the master bath, which did turn out gorgeous but the house still has a lot more that needs upgraded. Those pictures really put into perspective how huge that house is.
