    Limited pictures particularly upstairs.  GIves no sense of the bedrooms and has me wondering  what is wrong  with the bathroom. Though based on what's there it looks like a pleasant house

    Hi David,

    There are only five pictures - the more the better imho.

    The description is a bit clinical and I think you could use some more descriptive terms to bring the house to life and help people imagine themselves living there.

    These threads may provide further insights:

    How to make your rental stand out on-line 

    Are you leveraging "anticipation happiness" in your property marketing? 

    Hope that helps?

    Hi Vanessa,

    interesting post esp the bit about the cricket green in mitcham as i have 4 flats in a georgian building on the cricket green and im not getting £1250 for a 2 bed flat

    its a problem being more numerate, i tend to be clinical when writing, need to work on this area

    I didn't read the full description as it wouldn't let me open most of the links. Does it say something along the lines of bathroom and bedrooms currently undergoing extensive refurbishment? might give it the edge whilst pictures awaited

    Some suggestions/rewrites in bold

    Property Reference: 169410.

    Being Refurbished 3 Bedroom Mid Terrace House with double glazing, composite front and back doors with Gas Central Heating

    3 bedroom mid terrace with DG and GCH

    Property will be let unfurnished,

    Unfurnished

    Off street parking for 2 normal sized Cars, with a good sized rear garden with a decent patio for the barbecue and enough grass for the kids

    Off street parking

    Good sized rear garden with patio and lawned area

    Close to St Helier Hospital, local shops, parks (good for walking the dogs and playgrounds for the kids), bus routes, primary and secondary schools that are rated good by ofstead and are over subscribed but the house is within the school catchment area

    Close to excellent amenities and facilities, including St Helier hospital, shops, parks and transport

    Within catchment area of great primary and secondary schools


    also close to david weir leisure centre and sutton tennis academy

    (I'd leave this out, too much info and if people are interested in these facilities they'll look at a map)

    Superfast broadband available from Virgin in this area

    Superfast broadband area

    Property is Band C for Council Tax 2016/17 is £1,320.91 per annum and has a EPC rating in Band C

    Council Tax Band C

    EPC rating C

    3 bedrooms 1 double (3.0m by 3.2m), 1 large single (3.4m by 2.35m), 1 single (3.0m by 1.7m)

    Separate kitchen (3.0m by 2.40m) and living room with character fireplace(4.0m by 3.7m)

    Upstairs bathroom  is 1.55m by 2.5m and is  being remodelled

    Upstairs bathroom 1.55m x 2.5m (undergoing refurbishment)

    New Potterton Combi boiler and Radiators, 17th edition fuseboard fitted with 4 double sockets in each bedroom

    Not sure this much info is necessary for a rental

    happy to have upto 3 sharers or couple with 2 children, lgbt no issue, pets and students considered

    Great, just make sure you start the sentence with a capital letter (ie Happy)  Also suggest 'LGBT welcome' rather than 'lgbt no issue'

    References to be passed in order that a rental guarantee insurance policy can be bought and paid for by myself from openrent, this is mandatory and not negotiable

    Must be able to pass enhanced reference checks

    Long let preferred, professional landlord with 25 years experience, no plans to sell

    You could probably leave out 'no plans to sell', as 'long let preferred' sort of says that anyway

    £1350 is not a good price to market at, as it is not a Rightmove "price portal point"

    You would be better off at £1400 and open to offers, as you will probably be on page 2 or 3 of a search otherwise.

    Rightmove ads with over 10 photos get an increased click through rate of around 25% too. I always include 2 or 3 fillers to pad the advert out a little
