Tia Booth Becomes a Homeowner in Quarantine: 'They Told Me to Stay Home So I Bought One'
Home, sweet home. Tia Booth headed over to Instagram this weekend to announce the exciting news that she purchased her first house at 29. The Bachelor Nation star has settled down in Nashville, nearly a year after relocating from her native state of Arkansas.
“They told me to stay home so I bought one,” the Bachelor Nation star quipped, referencing the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which has forced many to spend extended periods in self-isolation.
“I’m a single, independent first time homeowner WHAT?! I’ve cried 5 times over it,” she continued. “I reached out to a lender on Wednesday, was approved to buy on Thursday, and signed the contract on Saturday.”
Tia went on to say that she and her real estate agent, Ashley Thompson, looked at several homes before putting offers in on the ones she loved most.
“[We] prayed that the right offer would be accepted,” the “Bachelor” Season 22 contestant wrote, explaining that she felt the spirit of her beloved late grandmother — who passed away in December — throughout the entire process. “I truly believe my Nanny was there every step of the way, and I know she would be so proud of me.”
Teasing that more home-related social media content will soon be on its way, Tia wrote, “It’s an absolute dream home. When I have my mind set on something, I don’t stop until it comes to fruition. Can’t wait to take y’all on this journey with me!!”
Tia concluded her post by sharing lyrics from Webbie, Lil’ Boosie, and Lil’ Phat’s 2007 hit song “Independent.” The physical therapist-turned-influencer wrote, “She got her own house / She got her own car / Two jobs, work hard, you a bad broad. (It me).”
Notable “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” alums quickly flooded Tia’s comments section with celebratory messages.
“This is so exciting! Congrats bb!!” JoJo Fletcher wrote, while Tia’s fellow Arkansan Lesley Murphy enthused, “Congrats babe!!! So happy for you.”
