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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

What Should a Buyer Expect During a Home Inspection?

Before finalizing a purchase agreement, a house inspection is needed for future homebuyers. A comprehensive home inspection will yield valuable data and address the query of whether the price accurately represents the state of the house. A home inspection should be objective and fact-based.

Home Inspection Process

An essential stage in the home-buying process is a home inspection. The physical structure and systems of a home are inspected non-invasively by visual inspection. In the event that an inspection reveals issues, you can work with the seller to reduce the asking price or schedule repairs before closing. In the event that the house has a major issue and you are unable to come to an arrangement with the seller or negotiate a lower purchase price, you can even choose to call off the transaction.

The main elements of a home are covered in a home inspection. These can generally be divided into five groups that suit any type of house:

  • Siding, windows, doors, slope, drainage, and roof make up the exterior envelope.
  • Foundation- mainly the materials and overall condition. Also,  the methods used in framing.
  • Air conditioning, heating, and ventilation, system controls
  • Electrical fixtures, branch wiring, incoming service, main panel.
  • Plumbing- components and state

Your Work Counts as a Potential Homeowner

The inspector's observations inform every step of the inspection procedure. But this way of thinking needs to change. You should educate yourself about the procedure and your potential home as a prospective homeowner. It will be to your advantage to visit the property ahead of the inspection and allow yourself enough time to examine it. You can also create a buyer's checklist that includes inspecting the house's exterior features like the walls, roof, pool, yard, and garage, as well as its interior features like the general plumbing and electrical systems, the heating and cooling system, any appliances, the condition of the walls, the flooring, etc. This way, you can take note of the stuff that you may find questionable and then ask about it during the inspection.

Importance Of The Right Inspector

Some states need a license for home inspectors, but not all of them do. Wherever you choose to live, make sure the home inspector has the necessary credentials. You are welcome to view an example inspection. Reading online reviews is another great way to find out a lot about a house inspection. To obtain an unbiased assessment, be sure to read both the positive and bad reviews. You can also get a referral from someone you know.
