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!

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.

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.

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.

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 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!

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.
