‘Sister Wives’ Kody Brown Goes from Renting to Real Estate Empire

Sister Wives star Kody Brown, the patriarch of his polygamous family moved from Utah in 2011. They ended up in Las Vegas and Radar Online speculated maybe they hit the jackpot while they were there. Now they headed for Arizona and their properties add up to a fortune. Radar wrote, “The Sister Wives stars spent $820,000 on property for their new Arizona homes.”

‘Sister Wives’ headed for Flagstaff

Fans of Sister Wives, the TLC reality show, heard from Page 6 that they headed off to the liberal college city of Flagstaff in the heat of July. It seems they had just had enough of Las Vegas and Nevada and hankered for a cooler climate. Now Radar dug around a bit and according to records they found with the Coconino County clerk of the court, the patch of bare land that Kody Brown bought in June was split into four.

There’s one section of the land listed for Janelle and Kody. That property is 2.42 acres in size and set Kody and her back by $170,000. Kody Brown’s also listed with Robyn on a similarly sized and priced plot of ground. Next up was a parcel of land 4.48 acres in size for Kody and Meri valued at $180,000. Notably, Janelle’s also listed on that particular property. The final chunk of ground was listed under Kody, Christine, and Robyn. This larger piece of land is 5.16 acres and cost $300,000.

Arizona property – total costs to Kody Brown’s family

If you do the math, the total cost of the four properties works out to a whopping $820,000. To be fair though, it may be offset through the sale of Nevada property. Christine’s Las Vegas home listed in July at $675,000 would have fetched over $200,000 on the price she paid for it in 2012. In any event, it looks like the Brown family ain’t digging under the sofa cushions to scrape a few dollars together. Let’s be honest though, with more kids than the Duggar clan, they need a lot of cash and plenty of space for everyone to live.

The new homes promise to be the kind of places they all long for. Of course, viewers of Sister Wives all know that Janelle Brown is something of a whizz when it comes to making property decisions. Mona Riekki of TMI Estate Agents helped her learn the ropes in real estate. The Las Vegas-Review Journal said at the time that Mona knew Janelle was the right personality for the job. “Not everyone is good at doing real estate…plus the clients love her.”

What does the community think of Kody Brown settling in Flagstaff?

The polygamous family may not need to be concerned too much about reactions to their lifestyle. Certainly, the police nixed it as a problem according to ABC15. According to them, plural families get the nod of approval there. Moreover, Kody legally married Robyn. Kody said they made their decision because the people there seem quite laidback about things. He added, “Let’s just say there’s a lot of hippies in Flagstaff.”  According to the Gazette Times, a neighbor, Pete Page is in fact, more concerned with environmental damage and too many people gawking when they film the reality show.
