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.

I can highly recommend this agency. In August we found ourselves having to move from our house at very short notice (having sold it some three months earlier). Kelrick were very helpful, pulling out all the stops to get us into a short term rental within 48 hours! Great people to deal with!

Excellent customer service from both Darryl and Pauline. They were flexible to our needs and kept us up to date through the process. Would definitely recommend.
