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.

This was our first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections, Frank Cooper was the lead inspector and he was inspecting a new construction one bedroom plus den in Alpharetta for a buyer client of ours. The inspection report was both detailed and comprehensive. We have tried out a few premium home inspection companies over the past year, looking for a good additional inspection resource, and based on our experience with Frank Cooper, I think we have found it.

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!

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 Frank came to our house to inspect the deck and provide a list of safety problems. While he was there we asked him to take a look at some termite damage in the attic.  When he went to the attic he spotted problems with a squirrel infestation requiring immediate action to correct for chewed wiring and unsanitary conditions.  We were unaware of this problem.  Frank provided a comprehensive inspection report in PDF format including multiple photos showing deck post deterioration, sagging joists and yes even a picture of the live squirrel in the attic. Frank is totally professional, knows his area of expertise very well and offers sound recommendations on how to correct problems without spending money for unnecessary improvements.  For example he told us the ledger board was in good shape and did not have to be replaced, only secured to the house wall with additional bolts. The small amount we paid for the inspection was well spent because the inspection will end up saving us money in the long run.

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.

Dustin was very knowledgeable and friendly and made my client feel confident in his explanations.  He was quick to point out the positives of the home he was inspecting.  His report was delivered within 18 hours of the inspection and had plenty of photos and very easy explanations in laymen's terms. I highly recommend Atlanta Property Inspections.

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!

For homeowners, selling a home can be an exciting and intimidating task, particularly when it comes to making sure the property is in good shape for possible purchasers. Finding and fixing any issues that must be done before listing the house on the market is a critical issue that frequently comes up throughout this procedure. Homeowners typically come across a range of repairs that need to be made in order to improve the appeal and value of their house, from small touch-ups to more extensive restorations. In this article, we will try to cover some of the most typical repairs that homeowners must make before listing their homes for sale.

Paint

Applying new paint is among the best home renovations to do before listing your house. One important technique to increase the appeal of your house to potential buyers is to paint the interior and exterior of your house. This will make your house seem much younger than it is and it's a relatively cheap way of adding value to your house.

Exteriors

They may say, "Don't judge a book by its cover," but it's completely normal to make a first impression about a house by looking at its exteriors. As the first thing prospective buyers see when they visit your house, the exterior of your home is quite important. So, repairing any damaged railings or fencing and keeping your lawn tidy is essential.

Plumbing Issues

Plumbing-related water damage can cause serious harm to your home and when home inspectors notice that there are problems regarding your plumbing system, the report may devalue your house. So, if you think there are some issues that need to be tackled regarding your plumbing system, fix it before selling it, even the most minor leaks count. 

Roof

Roof is also an important part of your house that needs fixing before you sell your house. If your roof has shingles that are missing or broken, sun or water damaged roofing componenents, destroyed weather stripping or any other issues, they should be taken care of.

Safety Components

Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are among the first appliances that home inspectors check for. Carbon monoxide detectors and in-home smoke detectors are mandated in almost every state. Be sure you are aware of the rules in your area and state regarding the placement and installation of detectors, and if they're broken, either get new ones immediately or fix them.

Reliable Home Inspection

In conclusion, there is more to getting a house ready for sale than just listing it. Any necessary repairs that could lower the property's appeal and value must be addressed with attention to detail. A thorough house inspection carried out by a reliable home inspection company is essential to this process since it gives homeowners priceless information about the state of their property and points out areas that need repair. That's why inspectors of Atlanta Home Inspection are ready to help you. Putting in the time and effort to make these repairs will give prospective buyers more trust.
