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.

Thought we would have a problem renting the house out at this uncertain time but it was no problem for Bliss she got me a tenant within days. Brilliant Service.

Valerie Lowe, Landlord, Ashton-in-Makerfield - May 2020

We have only recently started with Kelrick Properties as our landlord changed from another company due to soo many issues with the previous letting agent and their refusal to conduct repairs!

I must say I have never felt so at ease with a letting agency than I have with Kelrick Properties! 

Responses have been quick and professional. Repairs have also been just as quick!

I can’t truly express how satisfied I am with Kelrick Properties! Well done.
