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.

Thank you to everyone at Kelrick Properties for looking after me royally for eight years with a beautiful quality house and with your flawless professional service that made me feel like such a valued client. If I ever needed help, you were always very quick to respond, and I really appreciated your excellent liaison with the landlords. As I'd never been a tenant before, it was all new to me and you made it easy from day one. Even when I moved out, Nigel made sure the handover was smooth and easy. You even returned the original deposit within days. I can't thank you all enough. I was so happy and settled in the house and a lot of that feeling of ease was down to your care. Thank you all and may I just wish you every continued success in the future.
