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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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 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!

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!

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.

What to Do When a Seller Won’t Make Repairs After Inspection?

Not a single home is in perfect condition. However, home inspections are necessary to understand the minor flaws and the major problems a future homebuyer cannot ignore due to safety concerns. When you place an offer on a home, the real estate agent suggests that depending on what the home inspection provides, the offer may be subject to further discussion. When you receive the inspection report, be sure to read it carefully. You can always ask your inspector to explain any technical language used in reports if you think anything is unclear.

Negotiate To Reduce The Price

After the inspection, you can go over the details of the report and discuss the details with the homeowner. If the homeowner doesn’t agree to make the repairs you find important, you can do a few things. Of course, the first one asks the homeowner to drop the price. This might be quite beneficial for you.

Fix The Issues Yourself

You may also receive a professional’s opinion on whether the home will have increased value after you buy it and fix those issues yourself if the professionals tell you that the ROI of your improvements is high and worth your time and effort. You may just decide to buy the home and make those repairs yourself.

Walk Away

In the end, if you don’t have the time or the effort to make those repairs, you can always walk away from buying the house, especially if the overall situation doesn’t look so bright. Of course, you should always consult your real estate agent and the inspection company to make your final decision. But remember that walking away is a serious decision, and you want to make sure you’re not doing anything you will regret later. So, here are some of the questions you can ask yourself.

  1. Have you used all of your options to try and negotiate repairs?
  2. Do you have to move into a new home right away?
  3. Compare your choices; are they better or worse than that specific house?
  4. What is your budget?
  5. If you were to buy the house from a different homeowner, would the prices be similar or not?
  6. Do you have the time, effort, and money to make repairs yourself?

Conclusion

Remember to understand and empathize with both parties. A seller doesn’t have to make certain repairs; as a buyer, you don’t have to deal with a seller who doesn’t want to do repairs after a home inspection. However, even though choosing between the two options isn’t easy, you will have to choose and accept the consequences of that decision. In the end, assess all your options very carefully.
