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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

The Importance Of A Pre-Purchase Home Inspection

Many people use home inspection when they want to identify a problem with their house and when they want to sell it with an excellent report. However, did you know that a home inspection can have crucial effects before moving in? Throughout this article, we will cover how a home inspection before moving into a new house will help you take precautions about specific parts of a house, avoid pests in the future, negotiate about the price more, and find ways to get brand new parts of the house that aren't in good condition.

Taking Precautions According to the Report

Homeowners usually settle in and don’t mind the problems that may be caused to their house in the future. As the problem is ignored, they will face more and more and will even have the value of their house depreciate as it may even have infrastructural issues. However, with a home inspection, you will be able to identify the problem early on and have a problem-free head later. You most likely won’t have any problems in the future and will keep the value of your house. If you want to learn about the problems of your home earlier and would like to take precautions about them, call Atlanta Property Inspection today.

Avoiding Pests

Although avoiding pests may be a part of the taking precautions section, this is critical to go over. Pests have been a problem, especially for homeowners. The unnoticeable creatures slowly but surely eat certain parts of the house that contain glucose and end up causing big holes that allow more pests to enter, leading to significant damage. However, with a home inspection, you will be able to identify the gaps in the house early on and close the spaces up for the pests.

The Effects on Price Negotiation

Home inspections are outstanding when you use them to your advantage. If you have already agreed with the house price and signed the papers, you will most likely only benefit a little from this section. However, if you are still in the process of doing these, then keep on reading. A professional home inspector reports every detail of the house. If the report contains any negative parts like the plumbing or electrical system, you can use it to your advantage and decrease the price offered.

Getting Brand New Parts of the House

Another way to take advantage of a home inspection is to make the homeowner pay for new parts of the house that may be damaged. This is another standard method compared to price negotiations.
