Professional, Thorough, Responsive - A great home inspector

Yuri was extremely professional, thorough, and responsive in his home inspection. Given how quickly things move in the Toronto market, he was able to be onsite very quickly and was not intrusive in his work. His commentary was logical and realistic and he gave a great blueprint for remediation work for the locations where he found observed areas of concern. Where he was not qualified to comment or did not have the latitude to comment (e.g., behind a wall), he did not make assumptions and was clear about what he could and could not inspect. If or when we move again, I certainly would call Yuri.

Home inspection/Consultation

After we purchased our house, we noticed an odd odor coming from the basement. We corrected a plumbing issue and were thinking, problem solved. But no, there was something else at work, and we were completely unsure of even where to investigate. I spoke to Yuri and he agreed to come out. We felt we needed a more holistic approach than simply calling in various trades people. After a careful examination, we are fairly certain of what needs to be addressed. Yuri quickly honed in on a set of interlocked issues, and I now feel confident that we can properly correct the situation.

Home inspection

Uri was on-time, and very thorough and professional. He walked us through all the issues, big and small, that he noticed, before writing up and sending us the report. He sent us a very detailed report later that same day.

Home Inspection

We hired Yuri to help us get a better top to bottom understanding of our new home and get peace of mind over a couple of concerns we had after closing. Yuri showed up on time and did a thorough walk through with us explaining all the different systems in the house with tips on how to keep them running optimally in the future. It was a pleasure working Yuri and would have no hesitation recommending his services.

Post-Closing Home Inspection

In the crazy GTA real estate market, like most home buyers, we were not able to get an inspection condition on the offer of our new house. However, we knew that we wanted to get a sense of our new house and what some of the first things we may need to focus on once we moved in. I was provided with high recommendations for Yuri from my realtor. We were very impressed with Yuri and his inspection. Not only was his inspection and report comprehensive, Yuri also took the time to walk through the house with us, pointing out some of his main concerns and providing us with advice and guidance on fixing the issues. Yuri was patient with his explanations and happy to answer our questions.

We now feel much better knowing some of the main concerns with our new home and what we need to focus on immediately and what can wait. I would highly recommend Yuri for all your house inspection needs!

Crystal, thank you so much for the review and for the highest rating. Yes, you are right - the real estate market in the GTA is crazy. But I wish more people would do what you did and get a home inspection after the closing. As you correctly stated this serves as an education for your new home and puts at ease the concerns that new homeowners might have. I'm very grateful that you chose to go with my company and were not disappointed. Thank you again and I wish you all the best in your new home.

Home Inspection Done Right

As first time home buyers, we knew very little about how to assess the condition of a house. Yuri spent 4 hours with us by his side the entire time reviewing and explaining every facet of the house, inside and out. He also took time to show us basic things we needed to know, like what each mechanical device in the house does and how it works, and how to maintain it (e.g. replace air filters). I found him to be thorough and knowledgeable. Very pleased.

Great experience

Yuri was fantastic - we hired him to inspect our first detached home and not only was the report provided extremely thorough but he took the time to explain the systems in our home. We feel so much relief and peace of mind having the report that Yuri provided to us! We would highly recommend Yuri for any future home inspections

New Home Inspection

Highly recommended!

My wife and I hired Yuri to do the home inspection for a house we were looking at purchasing. We were blown away by his performance. He was professional, extremely knowledgeable, and very thorough.

It was an incredibly educational experience for us as well. This being our first home, we did not have a strong understanding of the different systems in a house. Yuri took the time to explain the pros and cons of the different systems, what we needed to do to maintain them, and what we should potentially be concerned about. His report was incredibly thorough as well. We have since bought the house and have printed off his report to use as a manual/guideline for how to care for our home moving forward.

The best part is the peace of mind. With such a large purchase it is great to know exactly what we are getting into.

Thanks again Yuri!

Tips for selecting a good home inspector from the article in Toronto Star:

Do your homework: Ask savvy people for recommendations and settle on an inspector before getting caught up in the stress of buying or selling. Inspectors should have serious experience in the building trades, errors and omissions insurance, and, at the very least, Registered Home Inspector, National Certificate Holder or Certified Master Inspector credentials.

It's no warranty: Some have sued successfully when inspectors have been wildly inaccurate about a home's structure and mechanicals, and the costs of necessary repairs. But inspectors can't break holes in walls or peel shingles and siding from a house. A report is an analysis based on a largely visual examination. Read the contract carefully.

Who works for whom? Buyers should be wary of reports done for vendors and vice-versa. Inspectors should be impartial third parties, but it's an unregulated business. Some may be willing to sacrifice objectivity to help a sale. Some may have inappropriately close relationships with real-estate agents.

The big stuff: Demand a clear statement on the foundation and structural integrity and estimates of repair costs. Attic mould, signs of basement leakage, substandard wiring or insulation materials such as vermiculite, asbestos and urea formaldehyde can disqualify you from a mortgage or insurance. How long till the house needs a new roof, furnace or windows? Find out what costs to deduct from an offer.

Seller beware: Having your home inspected before listing it can head off untimely surprises. It can let you be up front with buyers or enable you to seek good contractors to get the work done at a fair price. Pre-listing inspections can also help vendors rebut dubious claims from buyers' inspectors.

The bottom line: A typical home should take two to three hours to inspect, covering 400 checks, and cost in the $400 to $600 range. Be leery of an inspector who offers discounts or to fix problems he finds.

Only those inspectors, who charge a professional fee, do a real professional job. Everyone else is looking around.
