My column in the TORONTO SUN, which is running Friday, April 20th and Saturday, April 21st, is geared to people who have purchased houses or condos from builders and are stress-out or frustrated because they realize that there is just so much to know. A column like this is long overdue. It’s a place where home buyers can go to get their questions answered. It can also become a space where home buyers can share their experiences and remedies .
I have found that when people in the same situation come together to discuss or to ask questions, they not only help themselves, but they help everyone around them who are sharing the same experience. This column can make a positive difference in the new home construction industry. What could be better than to get questions answered which could ultimately be the difference between stress and a sense of calm and happiness?
I also welcome builders to participate as well. Homeowners need to hear the builders point of view, and builders need to really hear their homeowners. This can bridge the gap between the builder and homeowner, and give everyone a chance to listen to each other. Sometimes it’s just easier to verbalize thoughts and issues in a venue that is less threatening, and where there is no stress or anxiety on either side.
This column is for you! So everyone who has purchased a home from a builder email your questions, stories or share a thought to firstname.lastname@example.org and get the answers that you are looking for. Your email may be published in my column so watch out for it.
