In October 2021, Zach and Tori revealed they moved to Washington.

Moving to a new home has been an epic escapade for Tori and Zach, who recently updated their fans about the process. On Oct. 14, 2021, Tori posted to Instagram, “Guess what?! We moved! We’ve been quite busy the last 30 days and I am beyond exhausted. I hope we never move again. Haha. We said goodbye to our sweet, cozy, unique, and very green house in Portland yesterday!"

She was met with an influx of support from her followers on social media. As far as their reason for moving goes, it seems that basking in the enjoyment of having a fresh start is what likely helped them reach a decision. Tori wrote, “We have had so many beautiful memories in that house including bringing our sweet bean home from the hospital, countless gatherings and just a whole lot of love. We will miss Portland but we are so excited for a new adventure in … Washington!”

Portland might have the nostalgia and memories they’ll always love, but Washington will surely provide them with a brand-new sense of enthusiasm and exhilaration for life.

Why did Zach and Tori Roloff move to Washington?

Zach and Tori have expressed a desire to own and live on part of Roloff Farms, and they were hopeful to come to a deal with Matt. Unfortunately, the Roloff patriarch wouldn't come down on his price — so Zach and Tori switched gears and decided to relocate their family because they weren't allowed to buy a portion of the farm.

"The price that my dad's quoting is more than I can afford. I had a starting point and it was based on what my dad bought my mom out for," Zach explained. "[His] amount was very, very high. I can understand there's some appreciation but he went beyond, I think, the normal appreciation. I said no to my dad, and he's not used to people telling him no."

Zach continued: "I said to my dad, 'What is it worth to have your grandkids on this property?' Yes, I was talking financially but also value as a grandparent to have the next generation grow up on the farm. Do you want to make money off your own family? Or is it, like, do you want this legacy that you've preached about for 10 years? No one knows. No one knows now."

The 5,374 square-foot farmhouse, including 16.64 acres of total property, is now listed for $4 million.
