Thorough knowledge of items addressed in report. Home inspector was able to communicate any issues found with buyer and help explain the different items and their severity.

The inspector was really thorough and was patient in explaining to me what he was observing. He showed me where the shutoff valve was for the water and gave recommendations on various things. The report that was provided made sense and pictures were taken of some things that were found. The inspector was also very personable which put me at ease about asking questions. Thank you, Alex and Atlanta Property Inspections!

Frank Cooper and his team from Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc were excellent! They arrived on time  and thoroughly inspected all areas of the property I was considering renting. They found things that needed to be repaired by the landlord before we signed the lease. Frank reviewed his findings with us. He explained all of his concerns, and he patiently answered all of our questions. Then the next day I received a very detailed report that included several pictures and detailed explanations. If you want a kind, knowledgeable, and thorough inspector, don’t hesitate to call Frank Cooper with Atlanta Property. I would highly recommend him! Truly a 5 star company!

WOW! I can't even make this story up. In this very crazy market (June 2021) it seemingly takes 2 week closing (sometimes with *0* days due diligence!) to purchase a home. Anyway, Frank came recommended by another very reputable inspector, and I was fortunate he came!! The home we were looking at for my mother was a 1975 build and within 1 hour of the inspector being there a FIRE from an electrical panel broke out! Frank contained the fire, and was SO calm, had his team address the matter, was in touch with the agent and homeowner. He said in over 20+ years of him inspecting homes nothing like this had ever happened. Anyway the inspection was VERY thorough and Frank handled all matters very professionally. We will be working with Frank and his team on any home inspections in the future. I highly recommend!

Jeremy was the best to work with! He was on time,  very thorough in his explanations of his findings, and took time with my clients to make sure he answered all of their questions. He was detailed, and provided follow up when we needed additional questions answered. He went above and beyond! Best, quality, customer service I’ve seen in a long time! I’ll recommend him and Atlanta Property Inspections every time!

Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. was referred to us by our realtor for our home inspection. Our inspector was Cary Cooper. He really took the time to answer all of our questions about his findings. We didn't feel rushed or that any question was too silly. He gave us peace of mind with a few of our concerns and was honest, even if we weren't to thrilled with the news. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely use (and refer)  Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. in the future for any inspection needs.

We are relocating from out of state and we were in need of an inspection with a very tight turn around. We received incredibly thorough reporting and an availability to answer questions quickly. Cary Cooper’s professional and expert insight saved us from a potential health hazard. I would very much recommend Atlanta Property Inspection for any of your inspection needs!

This was my first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections. Alex Sozonov was my inspector. Very oriented details and willing to explained all questions with professional knowledge. Report came into my email box late night. Clearly, it has been covered all details. Plus, show up on time.

Have used Atlanta Property Inspections several times for my buyers.  Their team is always very thorough and educational for the new home owners.  Much information is shared about past/current codes, potential issues and how to have the issues repaired.  I will continue to use Atlanta Property Inspectors for future inspections, and my clients have been very happy with their services as well!

10 Best Places to Hide Valuables at Home

Burglars have always been around. According to FBI statistics, burglary victims faced a loss of around $3.4 billion in property losses. We can’t prevent burglars from stealing, but we can hide our valuable items and install more security in our house to stop them from coming to our house. That’s why Atlanta Property Inspection gathered this article for you. Throughout this article, we will go through ten different places and methods you can use to hide your valuables and how Atlanta Property Inspection helps. So, let’s get started.

10 Places or Methods You Can Hide Your Valuables With

Let’s see the list of 10 recommended places to keep your valuables:

  1. Hollow books: If you have a bookshelf with many books, having a hollow book with your valuable items inside will prevent any burglar from quickly stealing.
  2. Tapes or movies: If you have a VHS tape or movies in your house, just like the book method above, it can be very useful.
  3. Freezer: if a burglar came to someone’s house, unless they were hungry, the last place they would look is the freezer.
  4. Toilet Water Tank: One of the weirdest ways you can try to hide your valuables is by placing your valuables in the toilet’s water tank.
  5. Containers: Have containers around your house and put your valuable item in one of them. Put the containers next to a place where they won’t look suspicious.
  6. House Plant: Put your valuable items in a waterproof bag or container. Then plant them next to the roots of your plants. Change it once in a while so that the bag or container doesn’t decompose and you won’t lose your items.
  7. False wall outlet: If you want to go crazy with the precautions, you can place your valuable items inside a false wall outlet. No one would suspect anything.
  8. Old Suitcases: Putting your valuable item in old suitcases is not as safe as the options above; however, it is much safer than putting them in your drawers.
  9. Backyard: You can bury your valuable items in the backyard, as we see in the movies.
  10. Birthday Cards: Lastly, birthday cards to hide your valuable items can be very beneficial since no one will suspect a valuable item hiding under tens of birthday cards.
