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.

To ap­ply for “In­come Prop­erty,” email cast­ing pro­ducer Me­lanie Tanz at me­[email protected]­y­
