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!

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!

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.

This was my first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections. Alex Sozonov was my inspector. Very oriented details and willing to explained all questions with professional knowledge. Report came into my email box late night. Clearly, it has been covered all details. Plus, show up on time.

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.

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.
