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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

Dustin was absolutely amazing. He did such a thorough job and was super friendly and helpful in explaining everything to me as a first-time homeowner. Highly recommend this company! Very timely and professional throughout the entire process as well!

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!

Dustin is VERY Detailed Oriented and found items and suggestions on the home that I would have never thought of, the report provided very good insight on how to move forward with the sale of the home!  The staff at API was great to work with!

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!

Tips for Ensuring Your Buyers Experience a Smooth Closing

We know that the most satisfying aspect of the home-buying process is closing both for the realtor and for the buyer. As the realtor, you would want your clients to come to their new house with a satisfied smile and no burning questions in their heads. After all, even though it’s a normal day for you, your clients will be homeowners. Even though it’s the last day, there will be many things to take care of. Because of this, we prepared a checklist for you to cover every necessary part of the closing day.

Closing Day

As you already probably know, there will be many who will attend a closure. Although different states will have different regulations, most likely you will see a lender representative, a title agent, the buyer, the seller, and attorneys. Make sure your client expects these people on the day so it’s not surprising for them. Additionally, inform your client of the day and how it’s going to go. The closing day lasts 1 to 2 hours if everything goes according to plan.

Changes and Repairs

Confirm that the seller has performed the house repairs that were agreed on and, if possible, try to obtain a copy of the paid repair receipts.

A Complete Walkthrough

Perform a walkthrough of the new home a few days before closing to confirm that it is in the same condition and that everything is working properly. After the walkthrough, go over the Seller’s Disclosure. A Seller's Disclosure is a legally necessary document that the seller must fill out to detail all known faults in the property that could affect your client’s choice to buy it. Read the disclosures thoroughly with your client to see if there are any severe flaws that were skipped during the final walkthrough. This process is very important since it’s your client’s last chance to learn more about the house before making possibly the most important purchase of their lives. Seller disclosures can save your client thousands of dollars in the long run. If you notice anything unusual in the disclosure, make sure your client asks the seller for more information on the flaw or hires a house inspector.

Utilities

For the convenience of your clients, it is important for them to transfer their utilities, so they don’t have to face problems on their moving day. Make sure to follow up with your client on this issue. Additionally, you can give the clients a list of utility companies and their contact information.

What to Bring?

To ensure a smooth process on the closing day, you can inform your client about the things they need to bring with them. Some of these are:

  • A driver's license, passport, or government-issued photo ID
  • A certified or cashier’s check. This is important since personal checks and cash are usually not accepted.
  • Closing Disclosure to compare to final paperwork
  • Evidence of homeowner's insurance

Closing Disclosure

The lender must send the Closing Disclosure couple of days before the closing date. This document is important since it mentions all the critical details of the loan in detail. Make sure to request a copy and review this document with your client to avoid any discrepancies that may arise later.

We’re Ready to Help During Any Part

As a client, during any part of the closing process, you may need a house inspection again. You need to be able to relax knowing that you won't be surprised by unexpected repairs. Luckily, Atlanta Property Inspection is ready to give you that service. We are the right address if you want an expert home inspection.
