Jon and Kate Gosselin are finally minus the first house where they shot much of their TLC reality show, Jon & Kate Plus Eight.

The Gosselins have sold their starter home in Elizabethtown, Pa., for $258,000, according to the real-estate news site

The transaction didn’t come easily. The 5-bedroom house on Andrew Avenue went on the market in March 2009 for $325,000 before the asking price was slashed to $299,000 10 months later.

After a lien and the filing of the Gosselins’ divorce papers during their messy split, the location for most of Jon & Kate Plus Eight finally sold – for $22,000 less than the couple paid for it in 2006. The family moved into a much bigger home in Wernersville, Pa.
