The stars of HGTV are all about helping viewers save money during renovations and even make money by flipping homes. But have you ever stopped to wonder how much money these HGTV stars are worth?
HGTV helped to make many of these people into famous faces and household names. In turn, they used this platform and their newfound fame to really grow their wealth.
But how rich are we talking? Here are the net worths of HGTV’s biggest and richest stars!
Bryan and Sarah Baeumler: $20 million
Bryan and Sarah Baeumler first made waves in HGTV Canada with their show Island of Bryan. The show, which follows their attempts to renovate and open a resort in the Bahamas, became popular enough that HGTV brought it to the U.S.
This fame and popularity led to a nice payday. Whether or not they get that resort off the ground, Bryan and Sara Baeumler are worth an estimated $20 million.
And on top of their success, they’ve even kept their marriage together, unlike the next star.
Tarek El Moussa: $10 million
Tarek El Moussa is a real estate agent who learned a simple lesson from the 2008 real estate crash: sometimes you win big, sometimes you lose big. Along with his wife, Christina Anstead, he hosted a show, Flip or Flop, that documented his real estate successes and failures.
They eventually had a big divorce, but Moussa now has a solo show: Flipping 101 With Tarek El Moussa. With the success of the show, he is now worth an estimated $10 million.
Mike Holmes: $30 million
How successful is Mike Holmes? Let’s put it this way: he remains one of HGTV’s richest stars even though he is no longer on the network. This is due to the wild success of his previous shows such as Holmes on Homes and Holmes Makes It Right.
His straightforward and trustworthy demeanor built a loyal following of fans. This fandom helped him achieve an estimated net worth of $30 million.
Hilary Farr: $8 million
Once upon a time, Hilary Farr considered focusing mostly on her acting career. But she had an undeniable skill in buying houses, renovating them, and selling for a nice profit. This led to her having a hit HGTV series called Love It or List It.
Now, she has an estimated net worth of $8 million. And being on HGTV means she can combine her love of acting with her love of flipping, which is just icing on a very lucrative cake.
Unlike our next star, who never imagined an acting career when he became a real estate guru in college.
Scott McGillivray: $4 million
Scott McGillivray learned a simple lesson back in college: instead of paying to rent a place like everyone else, he could buy a place, live in it, and pay it off by charging friends to rent a room. This led to a modest real estate empire of 25 homes by the time he was 25 and, eventually, to the hit HGTV show Income Property.
And both the show and the real estate empire have paid off. He is worth a cool $4 million, something his college self could likely never have dreamed of.
Candice Olson: $10 million
Candice Olson is no longer on HGTV, but she is worth quite a bit. She parlayed her skills in interior decoration into local daytime TV appearances. From there, HGTV offered her some great shows such as Divine Design and Candace Tells All.
And despite those shows no longer being active on HGTV, they made life very comfortable for Olson. She is worth an estimated $10 million!
Ultimately, Olson was much more eager to dive into real estate than the next star.
Egypt Sherrod: $6 million
Many HGTV stars come to the real estate business slowly and reluctantly. But while Egypt Sherrod was hesitant to jump in, she comes from a family of real estate gurus. She was very successful once she took up the family business, and it led to HGTV offering her the show Property Virgins.
Before focusing fully on real estate, Sherrod worked in radio. HGTV allowed her to combine her skills in communication and real estate, and she is now worth an estimated $6 million.
Alison Victoria: $3 million
In some ways, Alison Victoria has been in real estate since she was 10. That was when her parents let her redesign the basement and they collectively discovered her design talents. This culminated in her HGTV show Windy City Rehab.
The show was a hit, even after she had to fire her partner Donovan Eckhardt for financial mismanagement. And Victoria certainly manages her own finances just fine: her net worth is estimated as $3 million.
She’s had it a bit easier than this next couple who had to travel to the Bahamas to find stardom.
Cortney and Robert Novogratz: $4 million
It’s easy to get tired just looking at Cortney and Robert Novogratz. They do a little bit of everything on their show Home by Novogratz, all while taking care of their kids and even managing their kids’ acting careers.
But this dizzying combo of family life and professional life seems to make them happy. It has also made them rich: the couple is worth an estimated $4 million.
Chip and Joanna Gaines: $20 million
Of all the HGTV stars, Chip and Joanna Gaines have the closest thing to a “rags to riches” story. They previously owned a construction company and struggled to make ends meet. But when HGTV offered them the show Fixer Upper, it made the couple famous and transformed their finances.
The show made them rich, and now the two are even launching their own TV network, Magnolia, in 2021. Put it all together and they are worth an estimated $20 million.
The next star hasn’t achieved that much success, but she did unlock a surprising new way to make some extra money.
Nicole Curtis: $7 million
One of the most basic bits of financial advice is to diversify your income. And this is something Nicole Curtis has mastered: she makes plenty of money off of her HGTV show Rehab Addict. But she has also made good bank renting out some of her renovated properties on Airbnb.
And it all adds up. Curtis is now worth an estimated $7 million.

David Visentin: $6 million
David Visentin never thought he’d end up in show business. Previously, he was just a real estate agent whose sister worked for HGTV. But at her urging, he auditioned for the TV show Love It or List It.
He got the job and enjoyed almost instant chemistry with fellow host Hilary Farr. He also enjoys an estimated net worth of $6 million.
He’s not only financially wise, he was also wise enough to never develop a relationship with his co-host. That’s a lesson the next star should have learned!
Christina Anstead: $12 million
Christina Anstead has had an unexpected road to fame and fortune. Her eye for good design first landed her a spot as a judge on Brother vs. Brother. And this led to her landing her own hit HGTV show Flip or Flop.
But it wasn’t always easy: she’s had two splashy divorces, including with fellow host Tarek El Moussa. They were able to put aside their feelings and work like professionals, though. And it worked out just fine: Anstead is worth an estimated $12 million.

David Bromstad: $2 million
Many people win television competitions, but few transform that victory into ongoing fame and fortune. However, after David Bromstad won the first season of Design Star, he went from poor aspiring artist to being the rich host of My Lottery Dream Home.
How rich are we talking? Bromstad is worth an estimated $2 million.
Of course, $2 million is just the drop in the bucket compared to our last celebs: the most famous HGTV stars of them all!
Jonathan and Drew Scott: $200 million
You don’t have to be an HGTV superfan to know who Jonathan and Drew Scott are. To many people, these Property Brothers stars are nothing less than the face of HGTV and the final word in real estate.
Their unique combination of charming personality and solid renovation tips has worked out very well for themover the years. In fact, these famous brothers are worth an estimated $200 million!
