Living in Atlanta often gives us the opportunity to see some amazing real estate. Working in Buckhead, Roswell and the Alpharetta areas, it is not unusual for me to see multi-million dollar homes for sale. These homes typically have prestigious addresses and a vast array of amenities. Sports courts, extensive home gyms, wine cellars, home theaters, putting greens and guest houses are commonly found in these luxury homes.

The most expensive homes sold in my service area for 2013 ranged in list price from $2.6M to $6.5M. Two of the homes on the list are homes built in the early 1900’s and include the home originally built the President of Georgia Power in 1929.

The homes include:

570 Stonemoor Circle – listed for $2.6M

estates in Roswell

Stately home on 2 acres in the Stonemoor Subdivision in Roswell, GA.

170 15th Street – listed for $2.9M

How long of have you lived in Atlanta? Some of you may remember a time when GA 400 stopped at I-285. That particular portion of the

road, which would seem impossible to live without in our current day-to-day lives wasn’t around when the road opened in the early 70’s. With that portion also came the toll booths. It has been over 20 years since everyone traveling from Buckhead to North Fulton started paying a toll. Most would say the toll  road has been a huge asset to our communities, even if they have been in rush hour traffic on GA 400.

History is going to be made on November 21 of this year when you will no longer pay a toll to travel on GA 400. It has been decided that the changes will take place prior to the Thanksgiving holiday, in order to ease some of the traffic woes during the winter holiday season.

All of this will result in some new traffic plans according to the Peach Pass newsletter, “preliminary plans call for all GA 400 traffic to shift into three general purpose lanes where motorists currently use the electronic tolling lanes.”

Construction will begin in October for the traffic shift, but the full demolition of the booths will run January 2014 through May 2014. Once the structure is down, traffic will shift back over.

This is great news and who knows maybe rush hour will move a little quicker!

From time-to-time, I find out that a friend or friend of a friend wants to sell their home, but is overwhelmed with the idea of what needs

Selling your home

What to do to sell your home in Alpharetta and Greater Altanta photo by© yuliaglam – Fotolia.com

to happen before listing their house for sale.  The preparation process is an important one and can feel like a bigger than life job.  Between preparing your home for potential buyers to see, finding an agent, signing and organizing paperwork, and the mental preparation of transitioning to a new living space – each step should be taken with care.

Below is a list of things to do that I give to my home sellers prior to us getting the For Sale sign in the ground.  It is a good checklist to have when you are thinking about what documents you need to find or what work really needs to be done. Do these items early will make life easier for you in the long run!

  • Handle all “before market” repairs.  If you think it is too much to repair, the buyer probably does too.  Buyers often think repairs cost more than they actually do.
  • Sign FMLS Exclusive Right to Sell Agreement and the Affiliated Business Arrangement Disclosure Statement
  • Complete & Sign Seller’s Disclosure Form
  • Sign Lead Based Paint Form, if built before 1978
  • Copy of Legal Description (from Warranty Deed or Security Deed)
  • Two Front Door Keys (one for lockbox, one for agent’s copy)
  • Security Code (if applicable)
  • Complete “Utility Costs” form
  • Property Tax Bill (most recent year)
  • Termite Bond/ Warranty (if under bond)
  • FMLS Homeowner’s Association Fee Exhibit
  • Homeowner’s Association Covenants & Restrictions
  • Copy of Survey (if available)
  • Copy of Appraisal
  • Get Independent Appraisal, if necessary
  • Floor Plan (if available)
  • Confirmation of School District
  • Neighborhood Newsletter (if available)
  • List of Upgrades
  • Keep Your Home In Showing Condition

Let me know if you are considering listing your home soon or in the future….we can walk through these steps together.

Lots of people are asking that right now..it seems to be the buzz term within in our media and among the real estate community. It

Beautiful five bedroom home in sought-after swim/tennis subdivision. Low Inventory in Atlanta

What does low inventory mean to you if you live in Atlanta?

means different things to different groups.


Low inventory simply means less real estate for sale. In metro Atlanta, we see that in all price ranges and areas as much as 40% less inventory is available as compared to this time last year.  Buyer’s agents all over the metro area are on the hunt to find property for buyers that have been searching and can’t find that perfect house. Whether it is the in-town condo buyer, first time home buyer, move up buyer and even in the luxury market, we all have buyers that haven’t found a home yet. As realtors that means we are networking to find listings not on the market yet.


What it means for buyers is that you may need to be patient in finding that one home that you love. You and your agent will have to work closely on new listings and unlisted property. A listing we showed this week in Chastain, to one of our clients, was not even on the market yet. This particular home had four showings the morning prior to being listed on FMLS and officially on the market. We knew about it from networking with other agents and were able to show our buyer. As a buyer, it will help if you are pre-approved with a reputable lender so when you find the one that you do love, you are ready to make a strong offer.


For sellers, make the changes and do the upgrades. Now more than ever buyers want the place move in ready. So go ahead and paint and touch up, freshen up carpet, change out hardware and do the things that were on your list “to do” or “not to do” in order to sell. If you do those items combined with staging, professionally photography and choosing a great agent  who will market your home  and take you through the transaction to closing you will sell, and sell relatively quickly. Not without any hurdles of course….:-)  But you will sell!

week with a smile on their face. General Motors will open an IT Innovation Center in Roswell, creating 1,00o jobs over then next 3-5 years. The Roswell location will be one of four such centers across the U.S., two of which are already open in Austin, Texas and Warren, Michigan. The fourth will be announced later this year.

According to GM’s Chief Information Officer, Randy Mott,

These Innovation Centers will design and deliver IT that drives down the cost of ongoing operations while continuously increasing the level and speed at which innovative products and services are available to our GM customers.

The company plans to begin recruitment immediately for database experts, developers, project managers, and other IT professionals. This is great news for college graduates and industry veterans looking for a new challenge.

It is also great news for homeowners looking to sell their existing home. Such a large volume of jobs, will undoubtedly bring more buyers into North Fulton communities. If you have been putting off getting your home ready to list, don’t wait any longer.  Finish those last jobs you have planned or give The Cueny Team a call if you are having trouble figuring out where to begin. Our team is experienced in helping sellers assess their homes and determine what can be done to grab a buyers attention. It will probably be easier than you think and it always helps to have a fresh pair of eyes! We are ready for you!
