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.

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!

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.

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.

I called several companies for quotes, and I felt that Atlanta Property Inspections was the most welcoming!  Thereafter, I had a wonderful experience at the inspection. My inspector was thorough, kind, and willing to explain things and answer my questions on site.  He was very knowledgeable and very friendly.  I am glad I did not skip the inspection for this 950 square foot condo, and the review has been very helpful, during my due diligence period in evaluating this potential home.

Newer Homes Have Many Benefits (PART 3 OF 3)

Newer homes can offer home buyers several benefits over older homes, most notably energy efficiency improvements and safety upgrades.  Energy efficiency has been a common goal in newer construction, and there have been significant improvements in construction standards and equipment requirements to lower energy costs. In addition, there have been a number of safety changes that affect several areas of safety, including fire safety, child safety, and electrical safety.

In Part One of this three part series we covered Energy Efficiency, and Safety Improvements in Part Two. In this final post we’ll take a look at a few more considerations when looking at newer homes.

Other Considerations:

1. Green Building: Newer homes often employ “Green” building practices and materials such as using sustainable materials for siding, decking, floor covering and interior finishes.  Higher efficiency appliances and low VOC paints and sealants also help make the home a little more “Green” after construction.

2. “Smart Home Applications”: Many new homes have newer technologies including smart home applications and smart thermostats.  These new features can allow the home owner on demand access to various systems throughout the home including climate control, home security, video, date, wireless functions, lighting and other lifestyle factors that affect daily life.

3. Warranties: Most new homes come with a Builder’s Warranty that takes care of issues concerning the construction of the home.  Builder warranties are most often for a one year period with many builders offering a longer warranty period for the structure.

4. Customization: Many builders offer the buyer a chance at some level of customization including design options and other changes.

5. Buyer’s Incentives: Builders often have incentives such as special financing, free appliances, or other incentives to generate interest and sales.  These can total several thousands of dollars in savings for the buyer.

While older resale homes can offer charm and history, and often value, there are certainly many advantages to purchasing a newer home as we’ve discussed over the last three posts. These are all important considerations to make when looking at the perfect home for your family.
