TORONTO, February 3, 2015 – Income Property returns with a bang this winter, celebrating ten seasons of house hunting, messy demolitions and mind-blowing transformations. Handyman and real estate expert Scott McGillivray is back and ready to help eager home hunters find their ideal investment property. The new season of Income Property premieres Thursday, February 26th at 9pm ET/PT on HGTV Canada with four, special vacation rental episodes rolling out in April.
“We’re passionate about giving our viewers content that will entertain and inspire them with real stories and real people,” said Christine Shipton, Senior Vice President, Content, Shaw Media. “Since the very first episode of Income Property, Scott’s commitment to connecting with homeowners – and our viewers – has helped reinforce HGTV Canada as the unrivaled destination for all things home.”
For the first time in the series’ history, Scott takes Income Property on the road as he helps four sets of homeowners renovate the vacation rentals of their dreams. In these episodes, Scott and his homeowners trade in their tool belts for surf boards, fishing rods, and canoes to take in some of the local activities. Featured in one of these episodes is Entertainment Tonight Canada’s own Roz Weston as he enlists Scott’s help in transforming his dated country cottage into an upscale rental retreat.
To honour the 10th season milestone, HGTV will air a marathon of one Income Property episode per season leading up to the new season premiere. As a unique added bonus, fans will get to see Scott and the Income Property team hijack the network’s master control during the marathon. Interspersed between episodes will be a series of 25-second promos that give fans an inside look at the series as well as Scott’s personal life. Viewers will see clips from some of Scott’s wildest stunts on the Income Property set, his first national television commercial, his wedding video, his boy band, behind-the-scenes bloopers with the crew, ‘where are they now’ check-ins with homeowners, and much more.
