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.

30 March – 05 April: 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.
