TORONTO, Canada – Canada’s most trusted contractor, Mike Holmes, helps families unlock the secrets of home buying in the series premiere of Holmes: Buy It Right, starting September 10 at 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV Canada. In each episode (14×30), Mike lends his eye for detail and expert advice to guide buyers through a top-to-bottom assessment of three potential homes. Coaching veterans and newbies alike, these future home owners learn how to size-up a home like a contractor before making the most important purchase of their lives.

For more than 30 years, Mike has dedicated his career to the safety and reliability of home building, unearthing make-or-break risks that can jeopardize a family’s future. In Holmes: Buy It Right, Mike helps families lay down their roots by revealing what to look for in making a smart investment. From driveways and staircases to water damage and electrical circuits, Mike uncovers dangerous hazards that can threaten their safety in addition to their budget. After a thorough Mike Holmes-guided assessment, these buyers are armed with the information they need to ensure their dream home doesn’t turn into a nightmare.

In the first episode, Mike travels to the beautiful island of Hilton Head, South Carolina, to advise first time homebuyers Caroline and Diego. Having narrowed their search to three contenders, Mike guides the couple through each home, illuminating hidden concerns that could be detrimental to the family and their children.

Holmes: Buy It Right is produced by Warm Springs Productions and Scripps Networks Interactive.
