A one-bedroom home that was purchased for $28,000 on 'Fixer Upper' is up for sale for nearly $1 million

Homeowners who appeared on the TV show "Fixer Upper" are cashing in on the success of the HGTV program.

"Shotgun House," which appeared on a season-three episode of "Fixer Upper" in March 2016, was bought for $28,000 and renovated by co-hosts Joanna and Chip Gaines, according to Curbed. The one-bedroom property in Waco, Texas, has now been put on the market for $950,000 by its owners. It has 1,050 square feet of space and is listed with Briggs Freeman.

The Gaines have been fixing up dilapidated homes in Waco since November 2015 and now have a cult following. In fact, the show has become such a hit that it's transformed the town of Waco into a full-fledged tourist destination.

This has meant that many of the "Fixer Upper" homeowners are renting their houses out on Airbnb and taking advantage of its popularity.

Take a look around the incredible and miniature "Shotgun House."
