Testimonials

  • Paul, Great job on the inspection-you covered it ALL! Thanks so much for your services – Pleasure meeting you as well! As first-time home buyers, we learned a great deal about the structure of our prospective home, and this certainly made us more confident throughout the purchasing process.

  • On the advice of my real estate agent, I recently contacted Final Say Home Inspections to arrange for a pre-listing inspection of my century-old home. I was made aware of some major problems that would either have to be addressed prior to listing, or taken into account during the negotiations with prospective buyers. What was most helpful, however, was the way Paul explained how many building code infractions could be easily and inexpensively addressed. His pragmatic approach stressed the ways I could reduce the number of prospective issues that might be of concern to buyers; many of the solutions he detailed were within my ability as an average ‘do-it-yourself’ homeowner. I am now much more confident that my agent and I will be equipped to prepare an informed marketing strategy for this property and I have no doubt that I will be in a more advantageous bargaining position as a result. Highly recommended!

    After our offer was accepted, I was recommended by a friend to contact Paul Christensen a home inspector from Final Say Home Inspection. Although Paul was slightly outside of my area, without hesitation he made himself readily available to work with me on my new home in Scarborough. I felt Paul was extremely knowledgeable, thorough and very easy to work with. He took time to go over potential hazards that may or may not occur if certain issues weren’t addressed accordingly. He walked me through the house and helped me understand things I would not have known otherwise. Paul captures inconsistencies and deficiencies with photos and takes his time to explain in detail the areas that need to be fixed or re-visited. Afterwards incorporates all notes and pictures in a report. When asking him questions he was very honest with his responses. I highly recommend Paul Christensen of Final Say Home Inspection to inspect your home. You will feel confident about your decision and will be completely satisfied with Paul’s services. He is everything that a great home inspector should be – friendly, approachable, and most importantly clearly passionate about what he does.
