TLC fans keep up with the Roloff Farms saga from Little People, Big World. The most recent season of the show showed Matt Roloff choosing to put several acres of the farm property up for sale. Now, he’s posting to Instagram about the property — and he’s making changes to increase the odds of it selling. Here’s what he’s up to.
Has Roloff Farms been sold? Matt Roloff put the farm up for sale
As of September 2022, Matt Roloff hasn’t sold Roloff Farms. He announced his plan to sell several acres of the property on his Instagram and Little People, Big World, much to the dismay of Zach Roloff and Amy Roloff. Zach was interested in purchasing part of Roloff Farms, but he couldn’t come to an agreement with Matt. As for Amy, she was appalled that Matt chose to sell part of the family farm. So, why hasn’t Roloff Farms sold yet? Property agent Juli Martin principal broker for the boutique agency LUXE spoke to Forbes about the difficulties of selling a property of this magnitude.
“I think people feel personally connected to this home in a way that is different from just a property that they see as a piece of real estate,” she shared. “They feel like the house itself is a character that they’ve come to know over the 20-year history of this show — there’s already a heightened emotional connection that makes it feel like home because it’s been in people’s living rooms.” With Roloff Farms still on the market, Little People, Big World star Matt Roloff is making major changes to the property. On Sept. 23, 2022, he posted a video to Instagram showing his crew preparing to move the large pirate ship that’s been on the property for years.
“We are going to move the pirate ship,” Matt shared. “We’ve got the crew out here. It’s kind of a big deal. … We are going to pick it up, put it on a trailer, and move it across the farm. We’ve decided that since the big house, this side, hasn’t sold, and there was very little interest in the pirate ship itself anyway, we thought, why not keep it. We’re going to move it over.” “Somebody asked, ‘Did you sell the property?’ No,” Matt laughed. “No, we didn’t sell the property, just not yet. It’s still on the market. But we are making changes to maybe make it a little bit more attractive. Maybe people don’t know what to do with a giant pirate ship.”
