If you want to witness the powers of Chip and Joanna Gaines, all you have to do is look at the price tag on this house. The power couple behind Fixer Upper made over this 1,050-square-foot back in 2015 for season three. When purchased, the 1920 home was falling apart and cost a measly $28,000. After investing $130,000 into the renovation, it was just listed for an astounding $950,000.
Yes, almost $1 million. Though, some people aren't convinced the property will actually sell for that price, which would be $905 per square foot - especially since the average price per square foot in the Greater Waco area ranges from just $100 to $200. However, others think the homeowners, Cameron and Jessica Bell, are onto something, since their home is located within walking distance of the Magnolia Market, making it the ultimate place for Fixer Upper tourists.
In fact, the Bells have used their home property (despite the Gaines' wishes) since their episode aired. They rent it out for $325 per night and reportedly have $40,000 worth of bookings on the calendar currently, which just goes to show it might be a very worthwhile investment.
Even putting that aside, it's hard to debate that the home is a stunner, inside and out. The Gaines turned this tiny space into a super functional family home, starting by adding 20-foot high ceilings in the living room.
Chip and Joanna also added a loft on the back half of the home (over the bedroom and bathroom) for a bonus living area. They added retractable stairs that can be raised and lowered like a drawbridge, so when no one is in the loft, the stairs can be stashed out of the way.
Even though the current price tag is pretty steep for such a small home, we have no doubt there's a Fixer Upper fan out there who thinks living in a Chip and Joanna masterpiece is priceless.
