Reality television stars Jonathan and Drew Scott have a combined net worth of $200 million. To date, they are most recognised for launching the Property Brothers television and home improvement series.
Jonathon Ian Scott and Andrew (Drew) Alfred Scott were born on April 28, 1979, in Vancouver, British Columbia. They are the older of the identical twin brothers. When Drew Scott’s parents, Jim and Joanne Scott, found out they were expecting just one child, they were shocked. John Scott was born four minutes before Drew Scott. As a youngster, their father immigrated from Scotland to the United States with the goal of becoming an American cowboy like the ones he had seen on television while growing up in Scotland.
The film business was his primary source of income until the late 1970s, when he decided to devote more time to raising his family. Maple Ridge, Canada, is home to a horse farm owned by Jim and Joanne and their three young children. JAM, which makes nylon-covered hangers, was the brothers’ first company, which they founded at the age of seven. In the end, a woman ordered thousands. A job posting for young clowns in parades brought the lads and their career hunt to an end. They used to make $100 an hour working as parade clowns.
When their father was renovating the family home, he employed John and Drew Scott, both then eight years old, to help with the construction and maintenance of fences, decks, and barns. Their father’s work remained to be a part of their lives throughout their childhood. In Alberta, Canada, the family began construction on their parents’ dream home at the age of 14. Upon completion of the family’s long-awaited dream house, the two boys attended Thomas Haney Secondary School before heading to Calgary to begin their collegiate careers.
Early Career: Drew Scott
During their teens, Drew and Jonathan began buying and re-doing properties. It was never their intention to be “starving artists,” even if they always wanted to be performers. Investment in real estate would serve as an insurance policy for what they actually intended to do, they reasoned. They bought their first home at the age of eighteen, during their very first semester in college, and they’ve been homeowners ever since.
For their $250 down payment on a seven-bedroom house across the street from their university, they took out a vendor take-back mortgage. The brothers rented it out and earned $800 a month in rent after the improvements. After a year, they sold it for a $50,000 profit while still in school. Throughout their late teens, they continued to acquire and flip houses.
The brothers experimented with acting and magic before settling on real estate as a career path. The purpose of John’s large-sale illusions was to construct a travelling theatre play when he dropped out of college at the age of 19. In response to a request from a fellow magician claiming to be a friend of friends, John consented to let him rent out a number of his illusions. In the end, the man took the entire exhibit, causing the concert to be ruined and leaving Jonathan $80,000 in the red.
He was unable to pay back the money he owed, and he was humiliated and upset about it, so he didn’t inform his parents. At the age of 20, John was forced to file for bankruptcy. When Drew Scott had finished school, she was working as a flight attendant for WestJet. Construction and design are John’s new focus at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SATI). Here, he obtained his contractor licence. During this time, Drew obtained his real estate licence in 2004.
