At least six Fixer Upper homes are available to rent on
A quick search on Airbnb pulls up the Shotgun House, Mid-Mod House and Mailander House. On VRBO, it's easy to find the Harp House from season 1. This home was a special project for the Gaines because it was renovated for Magnolia House's carpenter, Clint, and his wife Kelly Harp.
Chip and Joanna Gaines, the show's hosts, flip old or dilapidated homes in the Waco area. Chip handles construction and Joanna manages design. Their work has become wildly popular, and in Texas, they are local celebrities. The couple only works in Texas, making the idea of renting a Fixer Upper home desirable for fans outside the area.
Magnolia Homes spokesperson Brock Murphy told WacoTrib.com the company doesn't have problems with clients using the services to rent their homes, but will be "more strict" with Fixer Upper client contracts moving forward.
“We want to honor our national viewing audience," Murphy said in the statement. "We want to do remodels for clients’ homes. That’s the true intent of our show, and we want to ensure that does not get lost in this new vacation rental trend."
