Unless you are an experienced inspector yourself, or familiar with such things, I would with 100% confidence state that anyone who does not hire a home inspector on a new home build is CRAZY.

I would recommend anything except for Modern. The owner is known for going door-to-door, overpricing, and having very poor customer service. Also second rate materials for the same price as better...

I bought new in Phase 8 in Riverside South, a single Richcraft home. We bought early in our phase. The dirty roads are a nuisance, constant construction traffic, it's not ideal, but it's really not...

I can't speak directly about extreme yard solutions, but Andy's did a reasonable job for a family member of mine last season. Not excellent service but not bad either. A few friends of mine also...

30K is an outrageous cost for a basement. In most cases, you can do the job for $10K with mid-to-high level finishes, as you mentioned. Additionally, most builders include either a finished...

Are you aware of the full extension of Phase 2 LRT? The terminus station will be located in the heart of Riverside South, right at the intersection of Limebank and Earl Armstrong. It's going to be...

Will you be commuting downtown? Or to a different part of the city? I am wondering because you mention that Riverside South is a bit far for you, compared to Findlay Creek.

Thanks caehlan for the info. Makes perfect sense, and now I recall seeing the BRT route on Richcraft's proposed site plan as well.

Do you know why OC Transpo no longer needs the land for the park...
