T.O.’s hand­i­est man

North Toronto Post - - Homes -

Ex­pert con­trac­tor, phi­lan­thropist and HGTV per­son­al­ity Mike Holmes is once again of­fer­ing his ex­per­tise to fam­i­lies in search of their dream home. In his lat­est HGTV show, Holmes: Buy It Right, he helps cou­ples avoid home­buy­ing blun­ders that come from fail­ing to look at a house’s bones and fo­cus­ing on cos­metic as­pects in­stead. “We all need to learn how to buy in­tel­li­gently, and that means know­ing what to look for, know­ing how to trust your in­stincts, know­ing to see the red flags,” he says. Holmes cites the roof, sid­ing, grad­ing, win­dows and doors as the first things to in­spect when view­ing a house and says, “This show is go­ing to help a lot of peo­ple.” Holmes: Buy It

Right airs Sun­day nights at 9 and 9:30 p.m. on HGTV Canada.

CELEB CON­TRAC­TOR Holmes has ap­peared on The Ellen De­Generes Show five times.
