Home Inspection for a Home Purchase

I bought a house in Aurora, Ontario in March 2011, and wanted to be sure there were no surprises, so I made the offer conditional on an inspection. My Real Estate agent gave me the names of 2 inspectors to try. He told me that the first guy had over 20 years experience and the other had just 3 or 4 years experience. He said that obviously the more experienced guy would cost more and be excellent but that the new guy was very keen and quite good.

I decided to call the new guy first to see what he was like. After talking with him on the phone I was impressed with his enthusiasm and flexibility. It was late Friday afternoon and he said he could do it on Sunday or Monday or just about any day after that. So I picked him. His name is Isaac Kass.

Isaac did a very thorough job. When I met him at the home for the verbal report on the Sunday, he set my expectations by first saying that since it was a 25 year old home there where going to be issues, so I shouldn’t get too worried about what he was about to say. It was a good thing he said that because he then proceeded to point out about 20 issues he had discovered in the previous 3 hours he had been there. Despite all of this, he ended by saying that all in all, the house was above average for a 25 year old house. The next day he emailed me a 23 page report in Pdf format with 40 photographs describing the issues he mentioned in the report. Each photograph had red arrows pointing to the problems he was describing.

In the end, I did buy the house. Most of the issues where small, and the bigger ones where the kind of thing you can expect from a 25 year old home. I now have a document which I can refer to when I move in and begin renovations.

All in all Isaac did an excellent job. It was money well spent.

Pre-owned home inspection

We bought a 25 year old home, and our real estate agent suggested Home Inspection Canada. Isaac was very flexible in appointment time, and was able to go to the house during the day with our agent where he spent a few hours doing a very thorough inspection, and then came back at night to meet with us and to go over everything in his report. He also provided a very clear written PDF report with photos and work recommendations identified as critical, important, or for future consideration. Also as a certified energy auditor, he was able to give us some good advice on how to reduce our energy costs (e.g. some windows that were in okay condition, but don't provide good energy value). Overall, Isaac was very thorough and instilled confidence, and he was also a really nice guy to deal with! In the few weeks since we've used his service, we've already recommended him to another friend who recently bought a house.
