Let's Go to Waco! These Four Affordable Homes Are on the Market in Chip and Joanna Gaines' Texas Hometown
Deep in the Heart of Texas
Waco is where it's at! Chip and Joanna Gaines — and their massively popular show, Fixer Upper — have given the Texas city a major boost in recent years, and even caused plenty of fans to daydream about moving there. Thanks to the couple's Magnolia Market at the Silos, buzz about their new restaurant and a plethora of Chip-and-Jo-approved attractions, there's lots to love about the Gaines' hometown. Another reason to give Waco a second look: it has super reasonable real estate market, according to realtor.com.
If you've ever considered a simpler, shiplap-covered life, take alook at these four houses— all under $235K — that channel the hit HGTV series.

This charming home's farmhouse vibe doesn't stop at the facade (although those wood posts are very Fixer Upper-worthy). Beautiful landscaping, a smart floor plan and a large lot make it a total steal.
Although notably missing a wall of shiplap, the interiors boast sizable living and dining spaces that give way to a large backyard to enjoy the Texas weather all year round.
Old Meets New

This humble abode boasts an old-school charm on the exterior, but inside the house is completely remodeled, with a wood-burning fireplace in the living room and new appliances in the kitchen.
Old Meets New
Rustic architectural details, an open floor plan, bright, white cabinets and even a playful gallery wall are all hallmarks of Joanna's style.

Here, an off-white exterior and navy front door are right up the HGTV show's alley. Inside, a neutral-colored kitchen, walls of windows and more await the Waco house hunter.
The high ceilings, warm wood floors and open flow make for some good Gainesian bones in this home. Just imagine a farmhouse table and one of Joanna's big clocks on the wall and this space is on its way.

This estate is full of Texas pride, starting with the etched-glass Lone Star on the front door. Paint the brick a creamy, Jo-approved hue or leave it natural (the Chip route!).
The master bedroom is decked out with the kind of typographic canvases the Fixer Upper couple regularly decorate with. Other standouts of the property include a breakfast nook, walk-in closets and a flexible room that can be transformed into an office.
