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!

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!

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!

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 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!

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.

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!

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!

How You Can Read A Home Inspection Report

If you are looking to sell or buy a house, a home inspection is crucial. However, some still don’t understand why smart people get their home inspection as soon as possible. In this article, we will go through the major reasons why people get their home inspection, different types of inspection, and why Atlanta Property Inspection is here to tell you all this information.

Main Purposes of a Home Inspection

There are so many purposes on why one should get a home inspection. Firstly, the value of something is determined based on the condition of that item. While a home inspection service can’t tell you the value of the house, it can tell you about the conditions of items in detail. Second, if you are the buyer, getting a home inspection is a must for you. Many people who have a variety of problems in their house get them because they didn’t want to give the money for a home inspection. With early detection of these problems, however, you may take a different approach to things. Lastly, if you are the seller, having a home inspection can help detect the problems in your house. If you decide to avoid these problems and try to sell the house, it may lead to some serious issues with the buyer. So, have your home inspection and fix those problems so that you can easily sell your house without any problems.

What is a Pre-Purchase Inspection?

A pre-purchase inspection is mainly used by real estate agents. The point is to point out red flags on the property. This helps you see the value of your property and learn more about the possible problems without putting a price on the market. With these in mind, you sit down with a realtor and talk about the best price that would work for you.

Things Included in a Home Inspection

Before having a home inspection, know the places that he would look at. If there is a particular place that we haven’t covered that you want to get checked, then you may have to pay additional fees to hire a different inspector. Some of these places include the condition of the roof, insulation, and ventilation, the general exterior parts of the house, the condition of the house’s structure, the water main system, the wiring system, the plumbing system, and the HVAC system, and the windows and doors.

Main Points to Read a Report Easier

Firstly, be next to the home inspector on the day of the inspection. Not only would you convince him to check every detail of the house, but you would ask any questions that may come across your mind throughout the inspection. Secondly, don’t forget to read the summary page. If the report is too long and you don’t want to read it, read the summary page to see any of the major problems of the house and the photos that the inspector took. If you are working with a realtor, allow him/her to read the summary and see the photos too.
