Buyers Bootcamp with Scott McGillivray (DIY Network) – Premieres 3rd March
Property development programme with an investment twist, this has Scott McGillivray visit two developments, where the folks behind it need some assistance in making sure they can create a property that will get them the optimum return.
As Scott is shown around each offer he finds out the reasoning to why they need his help, along with him discovering the profit margin available if he invests and assessing whether the time to commit to the project would be worthwhile.
After selecting the project he wants to team up with, Scott invests his cash then helps the development along by showing the owners what to look out for during a renovation, and to gives tips on how to plan the property to get the optimum returns. During the redevelopment there are the usual property show hitches that happen which could end up adding to the outlay. Then when they are resolved the property is finished and sold, leaving everyone happy and a few quid richer.
For a renovation programme the addition of McGillivay investing in the project does give it an additional Dragons Den/Shark Tank/The Deed type vibe. Though that said The Deed does the same type of premise in a more interesting way.
