I have hired this company doing inspection on the property that I was planning to purchase in Georgia. I’ve live in California when this was done. Frank Cooper and his team did a great job of inspection and giving me with every details. I really appreciate the advice and the report. Thank you

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!

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!

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!

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!

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 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!

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.
