Season 5, Episode 2

New Start, New Income

Vanessa and Carmen met four years ago and have been inseparable ever since. Vanessa is graduating from university in the spring and they've set a wedding date for the fall. Although they'll both live with their parents until the wedding, they've already bought their first house. Scott is married to Carmen's sister so it's no surprise that he's influenced them to buy a fixer-upper income property to get started on home ownership. The suburban back-split bungalow they found has all its original 1960s details, and no charm. They plan to duplex it into an upper and lower unit, but they are challenged with the weird configuration of rooms and ugly finishes. They're broke first-timers who have to juggle their mortgage payments, reno budget and the wedding they're hosting on one modest salary. They need Income Property to show them how to make this house work for them.
