FAN FAVORITE REAL ESTATE EXPERT SCOTT MCGILLIVRAY HELPS NOVICE FLIPPERS WIN BIG
IN NEW SERIES 'BUYERS BOOTCAMP WITH SCOTT MCGILLIVRAY'
New York [Jan. 29, 2018] Contractor and real estate expert Scott McGillivray, the fan favorite star of DIY Network's Income Property, returns to host a new real estate investment series Buyers Bootcamp with Scott McGillivray. Premiering Saturday, March 3, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, the 10-episode series will follow Scott as he partners with first time house flippers -- investing his own money to renovate rundown homes. Each episode will feature Scott as he helps upgrade a property with help from the amateur flippers and, once the house sells, everyone cashes in and splits the profits.
"Real estate is my passion, which is why I'm willing to offer my own hard-earned money to rookie investors," said Scott. "But I need two things - a property with tons of potential and partners that can bring something to the table."
In each episode, Scott will meet two novice investor teams who have bought fixer uppers to renovate and flip for a profit -- from traditional family homes in the suburbs to historic downtown row houses. After he crunches the numbers and weighs the pros and cons for each house, Scott will choose the most promising properties and offer his money, time and resources to complete the renovations. He will join forces with the couples to remove walls, add modern kitchens and bathrooms, and freshen curb appeal.
"When I find a property I like, I buy into the action," added Scott. "The risks are big, but the rewards are even bigger."
