Atlanta Property Inspections came to do a pre-purchasing inspection on a home my husband and  I plan to buy! We had a very short due diligence period, but that was no issue for these guys. They fit us in their schedule on very short notice and were such a pleasure to work with. Cary and Riley came to do the inspection and did a fantastic job walking us through the inspection to let us know what they found, and suggestions on how to fix all of the issues! Shout out to Cary, for answering all of our questions and having such a great personality! We truly appreciate you guys taking the time to help us through such a very stressful time. We HIGHLY recommend this company!

I would like to recommend Brandon for his excellent job during the inspection. He is very professional, thorough and is an expert in his field. I enjoyed his partnership during inspection, the knowledge he shared of the risks of certain issues was incredible. I am very glad that he inspected the house for us and wishing him more success in future.

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!

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!

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!

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.

Atlanta property inspections gave me a very competitor quote and stuck to it for final pricing. They were able to get someone out to do the inspection so quickly. Frank and James were very thorough and helpful during the process they encouraged me to look at what they found, the good and bad, so I knew exactly what I am buying.  I couldn't have asked for a better inspection experience!

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.

My client used the company for their home inspection during their due diligence period. Jeremy and his partner were very kind and accommodating with answering questions. The report was very thorough and I like that they also note positive things about the homes in their report as well and not just what's wrong with the house. You can read the good and the bad.

10 Things Your Home Inspector Wants You To Know

The home inspection process can be stressful for both the buyer and the seller. It is the last chance for the buyer to find out about any issues with the house before buying it and for the seller, it is the last chance to deal with those issues and negotiate a price. If a professional home inspector discovers major issues with a property, potential purchasers can back out of the purchase or renegotiate the sale price. Therefore, it is important to clarify what is expected from the home inspection process.

The Goal Of The Inspection

A home inspection's goal is to gain an accurate picture of the home's condition before you take financial responsibility for it. Too many homeowners have found themselves responsible for tens of thousands of dollars in repair expenditures that they would never have taken on if they had had an inspection first. Generally, a home inspector will examine the foundation, structural components, roof, HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems on the inside and outside of the house, and then produce a written home inspection report detailing the findings. It usually takes two to four hours, but depending on the size of the house, it may take longer. The home inspector may take a few days to send the written report after the physical inspection. It’s important for buyers should attend the inspection so that they can thoroughly inspect their new home and ask questions. Simply reading the report wouldn’t be as helpful. This might provide you with a lot more information than just the report.

Essentiality of Home Inspections

Although it is thorough, it is important for both buyers and sellers to know that the process wouldn’t be absolutely perfect. Actually, government inspectors and contractors may not be qualified, or they may try to rush things, so it won’t be possible to notice every single error. Even though it’s not perfect, a home inspection is critical. You can’t simply go for the more affordable option of house inspection otherwise; you should be willing to spend thousands of dollars on your repairs. There’s not a single home or office without faults. It is normal for the home inspector to write a series of problems to the report. Good thing is, almost all of them are fixable so the question you should be asking is "How much will it cost to fix the problem?".

Don’t Worry About Your Inspection

As a buyer, you don't want any surprises when you're buying a house. Surprise repairs lead to unexpected costs, which can quickly dampen your enthusiasm for your new house. You may reduce the likelihood of future repairs by simply hiring a certified home inspector. In Atlanta Property Inspection, we know that home inspection isn’t an easy job, and we will do our best to help you. We see ourselves as more than a simple property inspection company.
