Mattamy – Ottawa quality in question

Well, for those that got the flowers and had their groceries carried to their homes, the attached link to a YouTube video shows the other side of the coin. Not everyone is happy in a Mattamy Home contrary to those who quote JP Powers. From personal experience, I can attest to the fact that what you see in the video is quite possible and not an isolated case.

For those buying a home, from Mattamy or any other builder, I can’t stress enough that a house inspector is a good investment. An investment that will increase the chances that you will not only enjoy the house upon moving in but for many years to come.

If you wish to join this protest in the Ottawa area, you might want to invest in a protest sign for your own front lawn and show your displeasure. Unless you’re a speculator that is looking at dumping the house shortly, maybe this protest will get you the attention you need to make this house a home for a long period of time. Remember, those that don’t want to see you do something are those whom Mattamy looked after or, want a quick buck speculating – including agents who sell for Mattamy.

To see the video follow this link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0exPPpJAzw

For a sign, read the following:

I am in the process of making a sign for my lawn, that says “I live in the worst built home in Ottawa” It will be 3 feet by 3 feet and i will also be picketing outside the mattamy sales office with a sign similar to this one so that potential homebuyers can be aware of what they are getting into! If anyone out there wants a sign I will make it custom for you! i will email you the file so you can get it printed and post it on your lawn as well. If enough people do this then mattamy will be forced to change their stubborn and ridiculous ways!! Let me know who wants one! joshuabarbour@gmail.com

For those in Ottawa, good luck and best of wishes.

  1. I agree that a home inspection is well worth the small fee charged for the service.

  3. As well as the lawn signs, i am also putting together a small video. I am interviewing people and their problems with their homes. You can stay anonymous if you just want me to video the problems in your house. This is for Ottawa only unfortunately. I just want mattamy to start changing the way they treat people and take responsibility for their actions and missteps.
