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 am from Hong Kong. I bought a property through Kelrick Properties. Richard Lee and his colleagues were patient and acted positively during the whole process of property purchase. My purchase was completed in April 2016. My property is now being managed by Kelrick Properties. I would recommend Kelrick Properties to overseas buyers.

When looking for a new property Pauline Fairhurst was very helpful. She was efficient, friendly and had all the information needed. Would certainly recommend using Kelrick Properties. The service was exceptional.
