HGTV (Home & Garden Television) is a very popular cable network which has programs focused for real estate investors.
One of their most popular programs is “Income Property” hosted by Scott McGillivray.
Income Property is a show about new homeowners.
With high mortgage payments, these new homeowners want to create attractive money-making income suites in their homes to rent out.
The new income suite will not only bring in rent to help pay the monthly mortgage, it will increase the value of their new home.
The host of Income Property is not only the host. Scott McGillivray personally owns many rental properties and assists homeowners on the show to:
1. Plan how to maximize the income potential of their income suite.
2. Work out a realistic budget with the homeowners.
3. Get the renovation done in the fastest, most efficient way.
4. Start finding great tenants!
