The couple previously told Us Weekly that they viewed more than 70 properties before settling on their purchase.

Initially they had made an offer on a fixer-upper, before Lauren got cold feet.

'Lauren was completely overwhelmed,' Arie told Us Weekly of his bride, who moved to Arizona from her Virginia Beach home after their engagement.

Their final purchase was a new build, and ready to move in.

'From the minute I walked into this house, I had a good feeling,' said Arie.  

Arie and Lauren's relationship started under a cloud, after he dumped her for now Bachelorette Becca Kufrin, before changing his mind.

Lauren was quick to forgive Arie, and the couple have set a wedding date of January 12, 2019 for their nuptials in Hawaii.
