Scott McGillivray Bio

Learn more about the host of Buyers Bootcamp and Income Property.

Real estate expert Scott McGillivray stars in DIY Network’s new home renovation and real estate series, Buyers Bootcamp with Scott McGillivray. The series showcases Scott as he partners with rookie investors to buy and renovate rundown properties and sell them for top dollar. A full-time contractor, real estate investor, writer, educator and spokesperson, Scott also starred in HGTV’s Income Property and has been a judge on network series All American Handyman and Flipping the Block

Prior to his career as a TV host, he spent more than a decade turning real estate into real income. Scott inadvertently began his future career while in college when he and a friend combined their student loans and bought a fixer-upper. The pair completed a “bare bones” renovation and turned the home into a rental property. Scott soon found success flipping houses and later built a business helping homeowners create rentable rooms in their homes. He lives just outside Toronto, Ontario, with his wife Sabrina and two young daughters.
