Overview

Scott McGillivray is taking his passion for real estate investing to a whole new level in BUYERS BOOTCAMP!

With years of real estate and home renovation experience under his tool belt, Scott knows a thing or two about flipping properties for profit. And now he’s lending a helping hand to rookie investors by showing them how it’s done.

Here’s the deal: Two amateur investors pitch Scott their property and he picks the one he thinks is the best opportunity. Scott puts up HIS OWN CASH to pay for the renovation and then teaches these rookies everything he knows about how to renovate to maximize value. Along with his new partners, Scott will have to work night and day to get this flip completed on time and on budget. If they succeed they split the profits, and if they fail, they fail together.

Will they sell their newly renovated property for a profit? For both Scott and his new partners, never have the risks been so high, and the potential rewards so sweet.

14 – 20 Jan: Episode 4 – Wartime Gem vs. Dated Bungalow

Adam and Kelly have a great house in a great neighbourhood. It needs a little work, but since it’s already tenanted, it’s already making money. Shane and Deb on the other hand, won’t make any money until they finish their renovation – which is 4 years in and counting! Both teams need Scott’s help, and after touring the homes, he’ll have to decide which one needs him more, and which opportunity will reap the best reward.

Episode 5 – Builder Basic vs. Backwards Bungalow

Kathryn and Farhan have had their investment property for years, and they’re ready to get out. Jessica and Kate have just purchased their investment property, and they’re ready to go all in. Both couples need Scott’s cash and renovation know-how to succeed, but when faced with the realities of both situations, he may need to forget the numbers and go with his gut.

Episode 6 Luxury Victorian vs. Multi Level Duplex

When it comes to investment properties Scott has done it all – or has he? Craig and Lindsay have an upscale heritage home that requires extensive restoration, while Kenson and Charles have an average home with a very unique building opportunity. With two exciting proposals in front of him, Scott will have to crunch the numbers and decide which one is the safer bet – and being in a brand new city and unfamiliar market won’t make it any easier.

Episode 7 Ranch Style Rehab vs. Cape Cod Fixer Upper

Scott travels to a brand new city to visit with two sets of homeowners. One has suffered some flipping setbacks and needs Scott’s guidance, while the other is starting a flipping business and needs Scott’s know-how. With similar properties in similar markets, Scott leaves it all up to the numbers, but he quickly discovers that flipping in a new city can have some unexpected financial repercussions.

Episode 8 Colonial Competition

Everything is not what it seems when Scott has to choose between two sets of investors with two classic Colonial homes. One house is suffering from years of neglect, while the other has some very serious foundation issues. With these types of properties some renovation surprises are to be expected, but when Scott discovers a “phantom” third floor, it takes this rehab to a whole new level.

Episode 9 Swimming Pool Showdown

Scott takes his investment dollars to sunny south Florida where he’s pitched two appealing properties. Sam and Sandy have a rundown house with a hurricane damaged outdoor pool, while Brian and Diane have a neglected property with an unkempt – but intact – indoor pool. Both have great value-adding potential, but when they find themselves drowning in structural issues, Scott questions whether he and his new partners will sink or swim.

Episode 10 Battle of the Beach Side Bungalows

David and Katie Marie are new to flipping and can’t wait to get started. Billy and Tabitha have already started, and now they’re stuck in a mid-flip crisis. With two great houses full of value adding possibilities at his fingertips, Scott is confident that he can’t make a wrong choice. But when some exterior issues threaten to derail the project, Scott and his new partners learn there’s no such thing as a sure bet.

Episode 11 Dated Design vs. Irregular Layout

Scott thinks he has a pretty easy decision to make after touring two potential investment properties. Steve and Josh have a 3-bedroom house in need of a major overhaul, while Dolmar and Keisha have a 4-bedroom house with a very bizarre layout. Scott’s all set to deliver the news, but when an unexpected change in financing comes into play, he changes his mind on the spot.
