According to Country Living, the home improvement-loving couple currently have a net worth of $5 million. That's a big chunk of change, but it's surprisingly less than the stars of HGTV's other design series Property Brothers and Love It or List It. It's important to note that both of those television shows have been on for longer periods of time than Fixer Upper, which only launched in 2013.
Since then, Chip and Joanna have become two of the most recognizable faces in interior design and home remodeling. Their retail property, Magnolia Market and Magnolia Silos, has helped transform Waco, Texas into a bustling new tourist destination. Vacation rental property the Magnolia House, their quarterly magazine the Magnolia Journal, the Magnolia Story book, have also helped increase the HGTV stars' yearly incomes. Along with their renovation business, their now have a team that sells homes across Waco, Austin, Dallas and beyond via Magnolia Homes and their own real estate agency, Magnolia Realty.
Don't be surprised if the Gaines' net worth skyrockets in the coming years. FinanceBuzz reports that they were worth just $1.5 million in 2015. If they keep up with that pace, Chip and Joanna may just become the two most profitable design personalities around.
