JONATHAN and Drew Scott keep busy! When they’re not star­ring on one of their many TV se­ries, part of the Prop­erty Broth­ers fran­chise, they’re growing their em­pire with a mo­bile game, Builder

Broth­ers chil­dren’s books and the

Scott Liv­ing col­lec­tion. Star chat­ted with the sib­lings about their new show, For­ever Home.

Tell us about For­ever Home.

Jonathan: It’s a new kind of show for us. Rather than flip­ping a house or search­ing for a family’s next home, we’re un­lock­ing the po­ten­tial of the place they’re cur­rently in so they can stay there for­ever.

Drew: It’s all about the heart within the home. We want to help home­own­ers cher­ish the mem­o­ries they have — and cre­ate new ones — in the beau­ti­ful and functional home they al­ways wanted.

What do you think it is about you guys that draws peo­ple in?

Drew: Are you im­ply­ing that it’s not our boy­ish good looks!?

Jonathan: In all se­ri­ous­ness, we think it’s be­cause we al­ways keep it real. We’re not try­ing to be any­thing or any­one that we’re not. And while we take what we do se­ri­ously, we don’t take our­selves too se­ri­ously. I think peo­ple can ap­pre­ci­ate that.

Out of all of your shows, which one re­flects your skills the best?

Jonathan: That’s like choos­ing a fa­vorite child or pet! We love each show we do for dif­fer­ent rea­sons.

Drew: On Prop­erty Broth­ers and Prop­erty Broth­ers: For­ever Home, we love be­ing able to give fam­i­lies some­thing they never thought they could have: a home that ac­tu­ally suits their family’s needs. When we re­veal the f in­ished space for the f irst time to fam­i­lies, we never grow tired of the tears of joy and smiles we see. But a lit­tle sib­ling ri­valry with Brother vs. Brother is al­ways a

fun ad­ven­ture.

Tips for first-time buy­ers?

Jonathan: Don’t get dis­tracted by a shiny new kitchen or jet­ted tub. As­sess what the house has and how it meets your family’s needs in an un­emo­tional way. This will en­sure you’re set­ting your family up with the right home for ev­ery­one.

Drew: Do your re­search and find an agent you feel 100 per­cent com­fort­able with. Take friends’ and family mem­bers’ rec­om­men­da­tions into con­sid­er­a­tion, but know that what worked for them might not work as well for you.

De­spite hec­tic sched­ules, Jonathan re­veals they have no plans to slow down: “We’re con­tin­u­ing to keep our hands full.” “We deal with dif­fer­ences of opin­ion right away when they come up so things don’t fes­ter,” Jonathan . “No mat­ter what we do go­ing for­ward,” Drew says, “it will have an en­ter­tain­ment com­po­nent, be­cause that’s in our blood.”
