Now, the TLC stars are selling the .46 acres of land for a whopping $200,376.

Duggar Family News: Life is Not All Pickles and Hairspray Facebook group was the first to report on the story.

As previously reported, Jessa and Ben, who are parents to Spurgeon, 2, and Henry, 1, live only feet away from the dangerous Interstate 49 highway.

“Perfect for a new business to catch traffic from all directions,” the description on Zillow reads. “With approx. 200 of I-49 frontage, you will be seen.”

Jessa's older sister Jill Duggar’s husband Derick Dillard has a reputation for being desperate for cash.

In 2015, they asked for up to $100 per month to fund their first international “mission effort.” But they didn’t give fans details on what the donations would go towards.

“I would never donate to a charity that doesn’t let me know exactly where and how my money will be used,” one user said, as another wrote, “I would like to know exactly what they do over there, is it really just preaching? They are not helping to better the life of people they see?”

Counting On

Then in August 2017, when they announced they are discontinuing Dillard Family Ministries, Dillard turned to Pure Charity to ask for a one-time goal of $6,500. Dillard raised $125 before the fundraiser was shut down.
