I have hired this company doing inspection on the property that I was planning to purchase in Georgia. I’ve live in California when this was done. Frank Cooper and his team did a great job of inspection and giving me with every details. I really appreciate the advice and the report. Thank you

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

Should I Avoid a Neighborhood with an HOA?

If you are planning to buy a home in a particular neighborhood, one of the questions people ask is whether they should avoid one with a homeowners association (HOA). According to a study done back in 2018, nearly 350,000 community associations were recognized in the United States, with 26% of the country’s population residing in these neighborhoods. HOAs are different from one area to another, and Atlanta Property Inspection can help you perform due diligence before making any decision.

Professional home inspectors can ensure that particular home checks all the boxes, guaranteeing you the ideal home. As the leading home inspection company in Atlanta, we can help you find out everything there’s to know about a house to have all the information, including your prospective HOA. Here are some of the pros and cons of a homeowners association to help you make a more affirmative and informed decision.

Pros of an HOA

One of the main benefits of HOAs is that some run amenities like parks, pools, security gates, and clubhouses. Unlike municipal amenities, HOAs are in charge of maintenance for these shared spaces in the neighborhood, including snow removal and many more. Suppose you are targeting a community with such amenities. In that case, a professional home inspection can help you find out who is tasked with maintenance and help you answer questions like: Are they in good condition? Or, how secure are they? The HOA takes care of essential utilities like trash, sewage, gas, and recycling which cuts down your other bills. Some HOAs also take care of your lawn, making your stay stress-free.

Owning a home usually comes with its fair share of groundwork, which can be overwhelming for most people. When faced with a conflict between your neighbors, the HOA mediates on your behalf and enforces set rules so that you don’t have to. In some neighborhoods, the HOA is tasked with a certain level of grooming and property management, which keeps the neighborhood looking good and the value up.

Another benefit of the HOA is that it provides an excellent opportunity to meet and interact with your neighbors. HOAs are known for organizing community events, allowing residents to volunteer, and serving the community. This goes a long way in fostering a sense of neighborliness and camaraderie, the basics of a united community.

Cons of an HOA

Depending on the location of your prospective neighborhood, some can cost you a couple of hundred dollars monthly. It is advisable to hire a professional home inspector to learn all the details before moving in, only to be bombarded with extra costs. Residents in an HOA-led neighborhood should all be aware of what the association demands to avoid any penalties due to infringements.

The limitation is another disadvantage of an HOA neighborhood since you can’t repaint your house or change your lawn, among other set rules. To avoid moving into a home that’s not ideal, contact us at Atlanta Property Inspection, and enjoy quality home inspection services.
