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.

Kelrick Properties have served us very well for the last eight years in renting out our property in Ince, Wigan. We live abroad and they have managed to achieve tenants for us, and sort out all our contracts and maintenance at our property efficiently and without hassle. We highly recommend them and use their complete service enabling us to be "worry free". We value their time and expertise as we value our tenants. Sandy and Shirley Montgomery (France).

Another year where Kelrick Properties have looked after the letting of our property and managed a difficult situation for us and our tenant with discretion and a good outcome for both parties.
Here's to another year of stress free letting, for us! (January 2020)
