You know those early mornings when you can’t find your cell phone or your keys because you woke up a little bit late and all you can think about is the three meetings you have later in the afternoon? A hectic morning has a way of making you miss things. Much like a hectic morning, the thrill of walking through your potential new house with your wonderful real estate agent while daydreaming of the new sofa, Tv and dining room table can make you miss important things.
Luckily for you-you have decided to work with the best mortgage broker in Atlanta, and we have put together a list of inspectors that you can hire to ensure that your house is everything it needs to be. Before we jump into our list here are some common questions regarding home inspections.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can I do my own inspection?
Sure you can, but it is not recommended. Home inspectors are trained to see the things that we can easily miss. At the end of the day, the home inspection protects you and having a professional
2. What should I expect to pay?
Check out our suggested home inspectors, they have competitive pricing and are the best in Atlanta. Depending on the size of your house costs can vary. According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, you should budget between $250-$500.
3. How Long Will the Inspection Take?
A home inspection covers everything from wires to roofs so once again this varies based on the size of the house. It is wise to budget at least 2 hours when scheduling your home inspection, however, home inspectors ususally provide an estimate of how long the inspection will take.
4. Can the inspection fail and what happens?
The inspection will reveal what needs to be repaired. In some cases, you may find that the repairs required are far more significant than you expected. The seller is not always required to fix what the inspector finds, but you and your real estate agent can negotiate for the repairs to be made before you purchase the home. One option that we can work with you on is changing your loan to an FHA203k renovation loan. Read more about renovation loans here!

Comprehensive Home Inspections
Comprehensive Home Inspections, has been a home inspector in Atlanta since 1986. I have conducted thousands of inspections in Metro Atlanta: residential and light-commercial construction, homes new and old, large and small, single and multi-family.
Every building tells a story. Every building tests an inspector’s ability to look, listen, comprehend and communicate that story. What is the building’s history, it’s strong and weak points, general condition and specific defects?
This puzzling out of how buildings work: how they meet or don’t meet functional and safety standards; that is the question. It is both a challenge and satisfaction.
Understanding and sharing building stories requires curiosity, intelligence, and a keen eye. The toolbag between my ears holds 30 years of inspection experience, an appreciation of Building Science (how forces of nature, occupancy and use interact with the built environment), an abiding interest in history and architecture, and of the pattern language that binds together each element. Your inspection will be accompanied with knowledge.
