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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

How Long Does a Home Inspection Take?

A professional home inspection is usually initiated by the prospective homebuyer during the initial purchase, but periodic examinations are important if you want to monitor the condition of your property. Of course, it is not uncommon for sellers to hire an inspector either. Some sellers choose to secure their sale before advertising the property. Whether this is your first rodeo or not, you might be wondering how long a home inspection takes nowadays. Your friends at Atlanta Property Inspections have the rundown here. Call Atlanta Property Inspections if you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like to schedule a face-to-face meeting.

The Factors to Consider

There is no silver bullet or cookie-cutter answer. The question of how long a home inspection takes depends on a number of variables. Some of the factors to consider include:

  • The Size of the House: Larger homes will take longer to inspect.
  • The Age of the House: Older houses can have outdated plumbing, electrical, and roofing as well as other age-related issues.
  • Accessibility: Is the property difficult to access? Does it include a basement, attic, crawl space, or structures that are difficult to inspect?
  • Local and State Laws: Local governments can set specific standards that affect the length of the inspection.

The representatives at Atlanta Property Inspections are happy to take your call for a consultation. We can work with you to evaluate the property’s specifications and estimate how long it might take to inspect the home. We are ready when you are.

What Does a Home Inspection Entail?

Everyone has an idea of what a home inspection is about, but what does a professional home inspection actually entail? The inspector is not going to focus on cosmetic issues such as cracked paint or peeling wallpaper. Instead, the inspector will analyze the building’s major systems essential to the house’s function. These include the electrical system, plumbing system, HVAC system, foundation, and more. The home inspection also involves testing for health and safety hazards such as lead, radon, mold, and pests.

Cut to the Chase: How Long?

Again, we cannot give you an exact estimate without seeing your property first, but we can give you a rough guess based on our experience. The average home inspection time, based on our unique experience, is between two and three hours. A basic, 1000-square-foot home can take less than two hours and you can add about 30 minutes for every 500 square feet of space.
You are welcomed to call Atlanta Property Inspections to consult with a representative and get a more detailed estimate. Our courteous representatives are always happy to help.
