As one of the most trusted estate agents in South Lancashire, Lifestyle Sales & Lettings are the go to local property market experts when it comes to selling your home around Ramsbottom, Bury or Rossendale.
We aim to sell your house quickly and at the highest available price, all while guiding you through the sale, exchange and completion processes as smoothly as possible.
Starting with a free valuation of your property, we will show you how to best present your home for sale. Whether it’s preparing for house viewings, marketing photographs or general curb appeal, we know that first impressions count, and something as simple as a quick de-clutter or a lick of paint can make a big difference.
Maximum visibility for your property
We always write honest and accurate property descriptions to help attract buyers, and as a modern estate agent, we advertise your home on all the main online property portals, including Zoopla, Rightmove and PrimeLocation. This gives us nationwide coverage and maximum exposure for you home.
Of course, we are a proud local business, too, and will giving you a prominent presence on our shop window boards from our offices on the high street in Ramsbottom.
Being at the bottom of a chain as a first time buyer is totally different from being in the middle or at the top of one as a vendor. While the process can be more involved, we know that communication is key, and we regularly liaise with your solicitors and the other parties’ estate agents to have a straightforward path to completion.
How do you go about selling your house?
Ultimately, the value of your property comes down to what a buyer is willing to pay for it.
To reach that figure, we research how other comparable homes in the area have previously sold for, as well as the overall condition of the building as laid out by your surveyor.
If a house, flat or bungalow is over-valued, you will be unlikely to receive any offers for the asking price, and the true current value will likely be in the region of the offers you do get. Remember, buyers views an average of eight different properties before making an offer, and although house prices in Ramsbottom increased by more than 25% between 2013-18, nobody wants to pay over the odds.
Rest assured, we know the local property market in Bury, Ramsbottom and Rossendale like the back of our hands, and we always strive to set realistic asking prices for our clients.
We always strongly recommend that a professional estate agent shows prospective buyers around your property. While we are duty-bound to address any concerns the viewers may have, we are fully trained to highlight the positives of your home.
We can also show people around your house while you are at work, maximising the number of potential buyers and increasing the chance of a fast sale.
Of course, if you’d prefer to conduct the viewings yourself, you are absolutely more than welcome to do so.
All house viewings will be made by appointment, and we can always arrange them at times to suit you.
There are so many aspects here that the question deserves a blog post of its own – maybe even several!
One thing that everyone can agree on, though, is that presentation is key to sealing that positive first impression. This starts well before any buyers have made an appointment to view the property, and whether they’re seen at our office or online, our marketing photographs are designed to show your home off at its peak.
Once the viewers are at your home, is the front yard tidy? Has the lawn been mowed? Have the windows been cleaned? These are all before the front door is even open, and doesn’t take into account other external factors such as the feel of the street or local area.
It may sound obvious, but it’s always sensible on the day of a viewing to make sure that all the pots are washed and put away, the bathroom is clean and with fresh towels out, that the beds are all made and that any kids’ rooms are tidy.
If you have pets, use an air freshener or neutraliser to mask any odours, and of course, vacuum up any stray cat or dog hairs.
We are always on hand if you’d like any further advice on how best to present your home.
This varies massively on the type and size of property you have, its location, its condition, and of course, the asking price.
The average time it takes to sell a home in the UK is around 10 weeks, although houses which need major renovation or modernisation work tend to bring this figure down. Generally speaking, most buyers are looking to move into a new place which is already in liveable condition.
With this in mind, houses which are in good shape tend to be taken off the market much sooner than a ‘fixer-upper’, and the area around Ramsbottom has been growing hugely in popularity for the last few years.
We do have a sole agency agreement, and if you are not happy with our service after 16 weeks with us, please do let us know why and we’ll do our utmost to address any issues.
If we cannot resolve the situation for you, you are then able to leave us with no cost incurred.

We decided that we wanted to move house earlier this year, and after meeting Niall, Melanie and Christopher at Lifestyle we felt happy knowing that our house sale was in great hands. Niall visited our home and advised us where to position our pricing, and Christopher took the photos. The house went up for sale on a Tuesday, and the following Monday it was sold. At every enquiry, and after every viewing Niall kept up fully updated on the viewers comments. When the interest level increased Niall managed all the negotiations and advised us every step of the way on who was in the best position for an immediate sale with mortgages etc. in place. The whole process with the guys at Lifestyle was a walk in the park and I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Thank you for selling our home in 6 days, and for more than the asking price! What more could we expect.
