ABOUT SCOTT


Q: DO WE GET TO SEE OUR OPTIONS IN ADVANCE OF CHOOSING THEM?

A: Homeowners really don’t see their options until Scott presents them on-camera. It is important that you trust Scott and the team to develop designs that will attract a great tenant and provide a great return on your investment. However, on the day of the shoot, you do have a chance to chat with your partner privately to make a decision. You can also ask lots of questions!​

Q: WHO MAKES THE RENOVATION DECISIONS?

A: Although we intend to use our reasonable efforts to respect your wishes concerning the renovation, ultimately, decisions regarding design, all design elements, materials, supplies and all other aspects of the renovation shall be made by Income Property's experts.

Q: HOW DO I KNOW IF I'M ELIGIBLE FOR CONSIDERATION?

A:  In order to be eligible for consideration, candidates:
  • Must be located within the Greater Toronto Area
  • Must have a realistic budget for the renovation.
  • Must be available for 10 non-consecutive shoot days (7-8 half days; 2-3 full days).
