Want a chance to be on a New HGTV show airing this year.
A current client and good friend of mine has been working for a number of years with Debbie Travis and HGTV. Scott's latest show will be looking for home owners in the GTA who want to convert their basements into rental apartments and have the renovations taken care of. This could be a unique opportunity to get on TV and improve your home at the same time. The Pilot show has been approved and picked up by the network. Now Scott's looking for potential home owners for upcoming episodes. If you or anyone you know currently has a home or is looking to buy a home this winter and would like a chance to take part in this exclusive opportunity, then e-mail me directly and I will forward your info.
From Scott: Regarding The Show
Did you just buy your first home? Does it have the potential for an income suite? Would renter's income help make your life and mortgage more affordable? Do you need some help?
HGTV's new show Income Property is looking for first-time homeowners that would like to build an income suite to help pay the mortgage.
If you fit the bill, Income Property may be able to fast track your project from beginning to end by:
- building and designing a legal income suite that fulfills Ontarios building code requirements.
- providing an experienced construction team
- hiring and supervising contractors when necessary
- organizing the reno to take place over 2 weeks
- taking care of dealings with the city (inspector, plans, permits)

- estimated value 12-15,000.00
Candidates will: pay for the contractor, trades and materials, be between the ages of 21 and 45, be first-time homeowners, live in the Greater Toronto Area and be available to physically help out with the renovation over a period of 2 weeks, Be easy-going, willing to appear on camera and willing to talk about your design needs and money challenges!
If this sounds like you, please:send photos of your home and a letter describing the project: list your name, address and phone number, how has buying your first home impacted your lifestyle, why do you need the extra income, is there an existing income suite (if so, what condition is it in...if not, what's missing in order to create one, in your opinion)
- has any work been done to the house since you moved in
- had any work been done to the house before you moved in
- are you working with a contractor on any current renovation projects
- is the electrical up to code

Each renovation candidate is interviewed on camera and assessed by our producers and network executives for broadcast suitability. Good luck and good reno!
