HGTV wants to put your cottage on a reality show
HGTV Canada is looking for local vacation property homeowners who’d like to renovate their space on one of its awardwinning series.
“Income Property” staff are putting feelers out in Peterborough and the Kawarthas to find a cottage owner for filming in the spring.
The idea is to turn a vacation property or cottage into a short-term rental.
The renovations are expected to take eight to 10 weeks and would be filmed in the spring or summer.
Homeowners need to commit to a $75,000 contribution for the project and must be available for four to five days in the spring/summer for shooting.
Scott McGillivary has been the host and executive producer of “Income Property” since its inception.
He’s also on HGTV’s “Buyers Bootcamp,” “Moving the McGillivrays” and “Scott’s House Call.”
To be eligible for “Income Property,” properties must be in Ontario. Suitable residences include cottages, chalets, farmhouses, boathouses, historic homes or any property that would make a popular vacation rental.
Interior and exterior shots of the home are required, along with a note saying why McGillivray’s help is needed.
