It's a good idea to check for objectivity and any conflicts of interest when choosing an inspector.
When you talk with a prospective home inspector, always check his or her credentials but also clarify what you expect from that person. Home inspection associations recommend that you ask the following questions when you retain a home inspector:
What kind of training and credentials do you have?
How long have you been in this business?
Are you affiliated with any real estate agencies or local construction businesses? (conflict of interest.)
Do you receive or give referral fees? (objectivity)
Can you provide an advance list of areas to be inspected?
Do you provide a detailed written report of all defects and recommendations for corrective measures?
How much do you charge?
Are there additional charges for certain tests?
Can you provide recent references?
No professional home inspector will object to these questions. If someone is reluctant, hire someone who you know you can work with.
TIPS FOR SELLERS - WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU RENOVATE
One of many important factors in the process of pricing a house for sale, is to determine how the renovations you did to your home will affect the price of your property.
When selling your home, you have to keep in mind that Value is NOT determined by what you have put IN your property but rather what a Buyer gets OUT of it. Buyers may not value the improvements as much as you do. One of examples is extended renovations in basement, with expensive tiles, pot lights and custom made oak bar. Believe it or not, there are people that do not like to spend their free time in basement, some of them do not even go to basement, unless for laundry, and therefore, the improvements you thought will bring the value of your house up, for that particular buyer, will not.
According the CMHC here is the list with some of the usual home improvements and what is the percentage of the average payback potential on the whole investment.
AVERAGE PAYBACK POTENTIAL ON HOME RENOVATIONS
Central Air Conditioning
Energy Efficient Features
New Heating System
The best solution is to consult your realtor Before you do any major renovation and spending extra money for improvements. Maybe there is solution that will bring more value to your property and with less expense.

6 WAYS TO BUILD A CREDIT HISTORY - TIPS FOR HOME BUYERS!
6 EASY WAYS TO BUILD A CREDIT HISTORY
1. GET A SECURED CREDIT CARD - That is the fastest way to establish a credit history for brand new borrowers (students, newcomers etc) or for people trying to re-establish credit after a bankruptcy.
2. AVOID APPLYING FOR CREDIT CARDS TOO OFTEN. Repeated requests for credit card may be interpreted as a sign that you’re in trouble and need a way to cover your debts, this will adversely affect your credit score.
3. PAY ALL YOUR BILLS ON TIME. Even some of the cell phone providers report to the credit bureau so, please pay all of your bills on time. Setting up pre-authorized payments is the great way to ensure payments are paid on time. Or, if you are not comfortable using this way, try to set up the reminders on your computers or phones to remind you to pay the bills on or before due date.
4. CHARGE REGULARLY AND PAY OFF IN FULL. Responsible on-going use of credit card will produce a good credit rating. Remember, you need to USE the credit card otherwise; your credit record will not change.
5. DON’T OVER-EXPOSE YOURSELF. Don’t have to many credit cards with small balance on them. Having 2-3 credit cards usually is the best.
6. WATCH THE CREDIT CARD LIMIT. – While using the credit card be careful NOT TO come to close to the credit card limit. (ex: the limit is $5000 and your balance is $4900). Try to stay up to a half of your credit card, maximum to 2/3 of the credit card limit.
If you are looking for a house to buy or even for refinancing, you need to be "visible" by credit bureau. Lenders want to check if you are paying your bills on time. If you do not have credit identity they will not be comfortable to give you any kind of loan (not even for the car).
This kind of situations we often see with clients that are older, widowed persons who have been cared by loving, controlling spouses. But, even young, professionals, who haven't bothered to establish their own credit identities, are in the same boat.
Once they decide to go forward and buy a house, condominium or a car, on financing or lease, they will hit the wall.
Don’t let this happen to you! Go to the nearest bank or call an independent mortgage professional and ask them to help you establish your credit identity. You can even ask your real estate representative to recommend you someone. That is maybe the safest way, since realtors can provide you with mortgage representatives or institution with proven record. BTW, please ask for at least three different brokers and/or institutions.
That way you can compare and decide who would be the best choice for you.
Before you make an offer on what you believe is your dream home, take a while to consider other aspects rather than just the size of each room, condition of the kitchen and how big the gardens are.
Location is definitely something that you will need to take into consideration before you begin. You need to make sure you will be extremely comfortable when you move in, so firstly take a step back and observe the neighbourhood surrounding your potential home. What is the noise levels in the atmosphere like such as traffic, neighbours pets, pubs, and youths? Are they what you expected?
Is your dream home situated in the most suitable location? You need to think about how the area is beneficial to your needs. Look at the access that's available to you such as shopping centres or supermarkets, public transportation, schools, and even parks or woods. As in the long term these things can become extremely handy.
The style of the house is also a factor that needs to be looked at. Obviously a brick home is easier to maintain but is this the style you were after? A Victorian style home is beautiful but also comes with lots of safety issues from the roof for example. Consider whether it is safe or whether other aspects of the house are high maintenance.
The safety of your new home can also be generally judged from the surroundings of your "new home". Away from the location of this house, look at the exact site and where it is positioned. If situated on a hill, take a while to judge how easy this provides access to your potential home, the amount of potential stairs you will have to climb or the driveway elevation. Also don't forget to take a look at the view to see whether it is really worth it.
If your dream home is at the bottom of a hill or situated lower than other houses then think about your neighbours view instead. Can they look directly into your home or ruin the privacy of your garden? Will it be safer for your children, pets or house hold belongings to be in a secluded area?
A large home equals to larger bills for electricity, heating and also for decoration. Think about how the house will fit in with your lifestyle e.g. you don't really need four bedrooms when you live alone, or a huge high maintenance garden when you work full time with children.
