Listing Prep Checklist

Important Things To Do Before Listing Your Home

Exterior repairs and touch-ups:

  • Repaint or replace your mailbox. Mailboxes seldom age well, but they are a prominent part of the view at the front door that greets potential buyers.
  • Clean and tidy up the garage/carport. (Plan on making a few trips to the dump.)
  • Repair and/or paint eavestroughs, downspouts and soffits.
  • Refinish the front door and polish any door brass.
  • Grease the rollers on the garage door(s) and make sure that they work properly.
  • Buyers often open these doors to make sure that they do – in fact – open.
  • Replace all cracked or broken window panes. Thermal window panes (the ones with two sheets of glass with a sealed insulating air space between them) often age badly, with the seal failing and admitting humid air which usually results in condensation or “fogging” between the panes. These should be replaced with new inserts because they project an image of an ageing and
    neglected residence.
  • If necessary, repaint the exterior and interior window frames and trim.
  • Make sure that the doorbell is in good working order.
  • Replace any warped/cracked/missing roof shingles.
  • Make sure the house civic (street) number is visible and give it a fresh coat of paint if appropriate.
  • Replace worn or noticeably faded exterior doormats with new ones.

Interior repairs and touch-ups:

  • Repair and paint cracks/holes/dents in walls and wood trim. (Use plastic wood or wallboard filler.)
  • Consider painting (or removing some) kitchen cupboard doors to give them a lighter appearance and replace handles to give the kitchen a more contemporary appearance.
  • Ensure that all door knobs and cupboard latches are tight.
  • Repair leaky sink/shower faucets and toilets.
  • Replace all burned out light bulbs.
  • Oil squeaky door hinges.
  • Repair/replace seals or caulking around bathtubs, showers and sinks.
  • Have the carpets professionally cleaned if they are dirty or stained.
  • De-personalize & declutter!

What Our Clients Say About Us

Megan and Natalie were wonderful! They were so helpful at the beginning of, during and at the end of my home buying experience. I had a lot of questions but they were always available for questions or to look at properties. They made it as stress free as possible and I never felt like I was alone in the process. Will definitely recommend them to everyone I know who is interested in purchasing a home!

Katie Williams

Megan is, as many others have said "the best!" Her knowledge of the Atlanta real estate market is second to none. She takes time with each and every client and makes them feel as if they are her only client. I have had the pleasure of working beside Megan for the past 3 years and I can say with 100% certainty that she has been an incredible asset for me. As one of the highest compliments I can pay, I have and will continue to refer her to my closest friends and family. If you are thinking about buying, selling or just want to chat about real estate, Megan should be your first call.

Mike Bernard

Both were great to work with! Always seemed to be available and were very patience with us during the process. Fielded numerous questions with a smile on their face. They were very honest and upfront and did an excellent job setting expectations. My wife and I both valued their opinions and felt they both lead us in the right direction. 5 out of 5 would recommend Megan and Natalie!

Will Canady
East Cobb

I recently purchased my first home with the help of Natalie and Megan. While the home buying process at times felt overwhelming, I couldn't have asked for a better team to support me. They were extremely responsive from the start of my search to my closing date. They provided me with resources to learn about the terms that would come up as I made an offer, went under contract, and closed on a property.

They answered emails and texts at all hours of the day and night, aided me in the negotiations for my purchase, assisted in the selection of a closing attorney, and continued to send me reminder texts for the various documents that I needed to review and sign leading up to my closing date.

I am grateful for how professional, responsive, and empathetic they were throughout my process, and I recommend her highly to anyone that is in the market for a new home.  

Sam Grisham (Atlanta)

We were first time home buyers that started our search a few months ago. We were very selective in what we were looking for and wanted to find our ideal home. Natalie and Megan were very patient and guided us through the entire process. They both communicated very well and accommodated our busy schedules. If there was a house that we wanted to view, they would make it happen as quickly as possible (which is imperative in this market). They helped us find our Home and we are beyond Happy!

Anthony Bilotta (Woodstock)

The Megan and Natalie Real Estate Team is outstanding! We worked with them to sell our home in Atlanta for a job relocation. They supported our timeline and quickly jumped in to help get our process started. This was our first experience putting a home on the market and they really took the time to answer all our questions promptly and walk us through the process with their expertise. They handled all the moving parts of our relocation with care, knowledge, and strong communication with everyone involved. They go above and beyond to make sure that everything runs smoothly and that their clients feel comfortable. We highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home!

Courtney Tooley (Roswell)

Natalie and Megan were amazing to work with for buying our home, and I can't recommend them enough. We were relocating back to Atlanta, and they were patient with our timeline, gave honest advice, were so responsive with all questions and communications, and made sure we felt comfortable with everything. These two truly care about their clients and go above and beyond to ensure a smooth buying process.
We could not have done this without them, and we highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
