Oakville Homes

January 3, 2011

Thanks to all my readers


As we go into 2011 I am sure that Mattamy and the other builders will give me lots to write about. It is a shame that instead of fixing some of the problems, they continue to work in the same old way. Even Mattamy didn’t learn their lesson in Ottawa and I understand continue to sell homes even though they don’t have final approval. I think the lawyers for the buyers should be more creative in preparing the purchase offers so as to protect them.

And, I understand it is a booming business for house inspectors. A number of years ago, it would have been unthinkable that you would hire a house inspector for a new build. Builders like Mattamy only have themselves to blame for this trend – a trend that will protect future homebuyers from less than perfect builders. Maybe Peter Gilgan will start a new business – Mattamy House Inspections. He certainly knows the problems. 🙂  

I wonder if he would sign the same form Mattamy forces house inspectors to sign.  Only someone afraid of what might be found would try to control a hired house inspector through some legal flim flam paperwork.

Well, I got my year end stats from WordPress and, I must say thank you to all those who have taken the time to visit my blog.

Oakville Homes was in the WOW category!!!!

I only hope that the information in this blog has stimulated people to protect themselves when buying a new or, old home.  Make sure you have a qualified lawyer (real estate not criminal), a knowledgeable real estate agent if buying resale and most of all, a professional house inspector that will guide you through the process and ensure you are not only aware of the issues in your house, but give you advice on how to proceed to protect your investment.  If you can afford the upgrade, you can afford the house inspector.  In fact, you can’t afford to not hire a house inspector. 

Take care and all the best in 2011

May 2011 be better than 2010 and not as good as 2012
