According to a recent news article published in April of 2013, Atlanta’s real estate market has seen its highest growth in sales since the early 1990′s. Home values have gone up 16.5% within the course of a year which is great news for both buyers and sellers. Buyers currently living in the Atlanta area or those who hope to move there soon should take advantage for this good news and begin browsing Atlanta homes that are currently for sale. Once a home is selected, the buyers should consult with a home inspection company in the Atlanta area.
Atlanta home inspection companies that have been accredited by the Better Business can assure customers of the longevity of good service provided by the vendor. However, with the convenience of iPads and mobile devices, potential customers can do an online search for an Atlanta home inspection company and receive anonymous reviews from previous customers. There are several Atlanta home inspection providers in the metro area including the Marietta, Cartersville and Norcross regions. In addition, it’s a wise idea to check with your real estate agent.

Many Atlanta real estate agents trust their recommended vendors, so they are going to help you select a company that hold a great reputation and provides excellent services.
Real estate inspection companies employ a variety of specialized inspectors that can provide a variety of services to concerned home buyers. For a standard home inspection, inspectors will evaluate electrical issues, inspect home systems such as central heating and air, analyze the roof, check the structural soundness of the foundation, evaluate the plumbing system, look inside the attic, and check the basement and crawl spaces for any problems or issues. But, before hiring a professional an inspector to do a property inspection, make sure that the company is insured so that you will not be responsible if any accidents or injuries were to occur during the inspection. Before the day of the home inspection, you should write down any questions or concerns that you may have about the home so that you will have them on hand to discuss with the inspector. Also, make sure that all areas of the home are easily accessible. For instance, if the entrance to the attic is through a closet, all clothes, boxes and other belongings should be removed from the area.
