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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Risks of Skipping a Home Inspection as a Buyer

If you are looking to buy a house, one thing you should never avoid is getting a home inspection. You have probably heard this phrase so many times. However, do we actually know the risks of not getting a home inspection? Well, many of us don’t. That’s why we are here to prevent it. Throughout this article, we will go through the safety risks of skipping home inspection, adding future repair costs, preventing negotiating points, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help. So, let’s start learning.

Safety Risks For Skipping Home Inspection

There are so many homes right now that have safety issues. The modern methods of building the house don’t match the old houses that are being sold. We must identify and act accordingly to prevent these safety risks. To identify these problems, home inspection plays a crucial role. Many homes have been saved with this service. However, we are not only limited to safety reasons. There are many more. Let’s learn about them in the next section.

  • Adding Future Repair Costs

The purpose of the inspection is to identify which parts of the house are damaged or need to be replaced. In a house, if a part is damaged and no action is taken toward it, it can cause significant damage. By identifying the parts of the house which need action to be immediately taken, you can save yourself more headaches than you can ever imagine. If you get a home inspection before buying a house, you can use the report from home inspectors to have the homeowner replace those parts. Let’s learn more about ways we can use the report for negotiation.

  • Preventing Negotiating Points

Using the report given by a home inspection service, you can do a lot of things. One of the most important things as a buyer is to use it as a way to negotiate. Seeing the things that need to be repaired or replaced and asking the homeowner to decrease the price according to the things listed in the report. This will help you to pay less and prevent overpaying. In addition, you will have a house that is better-taken care of and presented. However, to get all the benefits listed above, you need a trustworthy inspection service. But where can you find one?
