Golden Rules people need to follow to be on Fixer Upper
HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines inspire their fans. They get them thinking that they too can make a fixer-upper their dream house. Fixer Upper went on hiatus, but the couple brought it back on their network, Magnolia Network. The revival of the show is called Fixer Upper: Welcome Home.
Some people may be wondering how they can get on Fixer Upper. Country Living reports on some of the rules homeowners on the show have to follow. Keep reading to find out what some of the rules are.
While it may be hard to believe, Chip and Joanna Gaines only remodel homes within a 30-mile radius of Waco, Texas. During a Facebook Live Q&A Joanna explains why. “Our kids are young, so until they’re all out of the house and off to college, Waca is where we’re going to base our renovation business.”
How much money does it take
When it comes to the financial aspect of being on Fixer Upper, the best way to put it is- it’s not free. All of the projects are done at a cost, so the renovations are likely less expensing than going the traditional route and hiring a contractor. However, the homeowners are required to have a minimum of $50k for renovations. Homeowners need to be prepared to fork over some dough and give up control. Chip and Joanna don’t consult homeowners on every decision they make during the renovation process.
Of interesting note, the Fixer Upper crew doesn’t overhaul the whole home. Some houses have rooms that don’t even get touched. Homeowners seem to be okay with that. There are instances where rooms like a guest room, only need minimal upgrades. Something minimal could be paint or new floors.
Unfortunately, when it comes to the final reveal, what viewers see isn’t what homeowners get. For example, Country Living reports that when the show was on HGTV, the homeowner only got “one big-ticket item to keep at the end.” However, that doesn’t mean the other furniture and decorations used for staging are off the table. Homeowners get an itemized list of all the items at discounted prices should they chose to purchase anything.
Those are just a few of the rules homeowners on Fixer Upper have to follow. Do any of them surprise you? Share your thoughts with us in the comment section below. Make sure to come back to TV Shows Ace for more television news.
