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.

Currently in my second property through Kelrick. I have dealt with Danielle Tither for over two year's now and her customer service skills are excellent. Danielle is always available when I have any questions and has always resolved any issues in a timely fashion. Keep up the great work!
