Selling tips

When moving and selling, remember to dress your home for success:

Exterior

  • Keep grass and shrubs trimmed, make sure lawn is mowed and weed flower beds.
  • If you have pets, clean up animal hairs regularly and secure pets when the house is being shown.
  • Make any needed repairs to fences. A neat, well-painted fence gives a good first impression.
  • Your front door should be refinished or painted if it shows excessive wear, polish any brass fixtures.
  • Check exterior paintwork is in good condition.

Interior

  • Keep your house clean and tidy at all times in case a viewing is arranged at short notice.
  • Avoid using strong smelling foods and off-putting strong cleaning solutions. Some smells, eg. Baked bread, coffee brewing etc. have a positive effect.
  • Touch up paintwork if needed with any left-over paint you have.
  • Keep colours neutral - light colours make rooms appear fresh as well as larger.
  • Keep carpets and curtains clean.
  • Before a showing, open the blinds and curtains and turn on the lights, even during the day. You want the house as light as possible.
  • Fresh flowers create a favoured reaction.
  • Consider putting excess furniture into a garden shed or garage.
  • On cold days, arrange for the central heating to come on before the viewing or in hot weather, open windows for fresh air.

The best Letting agency I have ever been with. Patient, kind and kept us informed every step of the way. Danielle especially is a joy to talk to and has made us very confident that letting from them is no mistake. I would recommend them to anyone looking to rent a property. Every detail is cut and dry - not full of legal jargon that you have to use a dictionary to read. Kelrick Properties makes this easy and fun.

Kelly Watkinson, Tenant, Wigan - December 2017

I have been with Kelrick properties for many years. I have always dealt with Nigel who is always very helpful, professional, understanding and fair. He is a credit to the company and the company is a credit to Ashton who has served the town of Ashton for successfully, professionally for many years and knows our town inside out. I have encountered no problems at all in all the years I have dealt with them. Ashton would not be the same without Kelrick Properties and Nigel.
