Gary purchased a four-bedroom, two-bathroom home for $69,900 in March 2015.
The home boasts a detached two-car garage, workshop and barn.
Then in November 2016, he bought another house for $30,000.
The abode features two bedrooms and one bathroom.
In March 2019, Gary added a one-bedroom, one-bathroom home to his empire for $28,000.
Gary also owns two plots of vacant land for $30,000 each that he bought in November 2016.
Gary has yet to flip or re-sell the properties.
As The Sun previously reported, Gary bought a Pendleton, Indiana farmhouse in March 2017 for $333,000.
The home, which he shares with his wife Kristina, their daughter Emilee and his daughter Leah, 12, from his previous relationship with Amber, 30, boasts five bedrooms and two-and-half bathrooms.
Gary, who is known for his cooking, whips up meals and desserts in a custom kitchen that features wood cabinets, granite countertops with a matching backsplash, an island and stainless steel appliances.
Earlier this week, he showed off his new Kitchen Aid oven.
The Teen Mom OG dad captioned a photo of the appliance: “Exciting day today! Got us a new oven @kitchenaidusa #smartoven love this thing. Haven’t used it yet, but soon! Nothing was wrong with my old one! But been eyeing this oven for a while now! And today was the day!!!”
The home has hardwood floors and carpeting throughout.
Daughter Emilee’s room is complete with carpet and a dollhouse, while Leah’s room has a flower comforter and “L” decor.
The outside of the home features a detached three-car garage and a workshop.
The home is also perfect for animal lovers, as it boasts a barn.
Gary posted a photo of Leah inside the barn with their chickens.
The MTV star took advantage of the acres of land by planting a garden, where he grows tomatoes, jalapeños, blackberries, watermelons and more.
He often shows off his pies and meals after using his farm-grown vegetables and fruits.
On the Teen Mom OG trailer for the upcoming season, Amber revealed Gary encouraged her to move on his land.
Gary said she could live in a mobile home on his land, and she would pay cheaper rent than what she does now.
He even said the rent would go towards their daughter and not to him.
Though Amber and Gary share 50/50 custody of Leah, she primarily resides with her father.
Amber is also mom to son James, 2, who she shares with ex-boyfriend Andrew Glennon.
Andrew, 36, was granted primary physical custody of their toddler after Amber, was arrested for domestic violence against her then-boyfriend in July 2019.
Instead of paying child support, Amber allows Andrew and their son James to live in her former home, while she is renting an hour away.
