How Much Does It Cost To Hire The Property Brothers?

Property Brothers stars Drew and Jonathan Scott are in demand, and it's no wonder fans are curious just how much they'll need to shell out to get the Scott brothers into their homes for one of their stunning renovations. The bad news is that you can't hire the Canadian twins privately. The good news is that there is a way to get your Property Brothers makeover — you just have to meet the criteria. 

If you desperately want the Scott bros to redo your space (and why wouldn't you?), you'll need to apply to appear on an upcoming season of Property Brothers via the HGTV website. Although they don't necessarily charge a fee up front for their services, you will need to have at least $90,000 set aside for your renovation and design budget to be considered for the show, and don't forget — you also have to buy a new home.

According to a January 2019 casting call, there are a few other requirements that potential Property Brothers participants must meet. You must "be buying and renovating a 'fixer-upper;' be outgoing, energetic, opinionated, and fun, with unique stories to tell; need expert design and construction help; be able to make quick decisions in order to keep to tight timelines; be available for up to 7-10 days of filming (staggered over 7-8 weeks); be enthusiastic about working with Jonathan and his design team who have the know-how to help create your dream home; and be 21 years of age or older." 

Per a previous application, contestants need to be either moving to a certain area, or be within 30 to 40 minutes from wherever the new home is located. Additionally, the application requested information about the participant, their family, their occupation, what the relationship dynamic is like, and what their general experience is with home renovation, since participants will be expected to pitch in.

There are a lot of requirements, and it's a lot of money, but The Spruce reports some good news: If you're lucky enough to be chosen for the show, Property Brothers will handle the remodeling, design, and construction of your home, of course, and will also contribute financially towards the overall costs of the renovation. Sounds like a pretty good deal, right? The Spruce actually suggests contacting the producers directly, to show your enthusiasm, if you're really desperate for HGTV to roll up. 

Those without the sizable $90,000+ required budget on hand can get the Property Brothers experience via Casaza, a shopping platform created by the Scott brothers that they described to Vox as an "inspiration hub for people in the home space." The selection of items for sale is curated by Drew and Jonathan, alongside a team of other designers. There are even whole looks which you can shop and, via the platform itself, hire the designers to redo your own space.

Casaza Pro further provides the opportunity for that all-important Property Brothers experience. As Jonathan Scott explained, "We'll have a professional technician come to the house, do all your measurements, identify opportunities for you, ways that you could save money, and get you all set up on the platform," all for a "very affordable" fee. They'll even find local designers in your area, to further keep costs down.  

As Drew Scott told Vox, "The biggest thing people ask us is how can they have Jonathan and me come to their house and help them with their home. But this is a way we can scale where a lot more people can get that inspiration. Casaza is taking the whole experience of what you see on our shows and bringing that to you." 

If you're more interested in Jonathan's and Drew's oratory abilities, you can hire them to do speaking events for the princely sum of $75,000 to $149,999, according to their talent agency profile listing. It's worth noting this is a considerable increase on their previously-reported fees. Back in 2016, Starcasm noted the Scott brothers fetched a still considerable $60,000 for speaking at the time.

Drew and Jonathan Scott came to fame via their insanely popular show, Property Brothers, which has inspired several spin-offs, including Buying and Selling and Forever Home. The lovable duo are just as well-liked for their budget-friendly renovation tips as they are their easy rapport with each other.
