  7. 7. Making a Good Impression Have you ever heard the old saying, "You only get one chance to make a first impression"? Well, its true. And the same applies to your home. If potential buyers pull up to your home and see an unkept yard, paint pealing, weeds abounding, dirty windows, do you think theyre going to want to see your house? I have driven up to houses and had that very thought myself. "I dont even want to see it". Staging starts in your front yard. Here are a few tips.1. Make sure your grass is mowed and neatly groomed.2. In the winter, make sure all walkways and your driveway have been cleared of snow.3. If its seasonally appropriate, plant flowers. Always add a pop of color if you can.4. Trim all bushes and trees.5. Have a fountain in your front yard? Before... Make sure its clean & functional and turn it on. If not, remove it.6. Have a pet who likes to use yard to do its "job"? Make sure it is ALL removed.7. If your paint is pealing or chipping, PAINT!8. Make sure your windows are clean..... especially the front door.9. Spend time staging the front entrance. You want people to feel drawn into your After! home.10. Change out tired and outdated coach and porch lights.11. House numbers looking shabby? Replace them. Staging the front of your home may not guarantee the sale, but I can just about guarantee you it will draw in the Buyers. If the outside is messy and uncared for, Buyers will assume the same about the inside of the house. So.....start with the front of your home; the driveway and walkways. In the fall, make sure the leaves are cleared away.(402) 541.8011 |
  8. 8. Staging to SellI offer to all of my clients, experienced, complimentary and comprehensivestaging of your home from the front door to the last room in your house whilepracticing the three Ds of selling your home: Depersonalize, Declutter, and Decorate!Home Staging Benefits1. Staging forces you to think like a buyer. It will help you to look at your home as if YOU were the buyer.2. Staging forces you to organize and de-clutter. Clearing away cabinets, closets, knick-knacks, etc., will not only make your home look larger, but it also gives you a jump start on packing for your move. Don’t be afraid to rent a Before... storage space and get everything out of your house that is not necessary, and dont forget the garage. It needs to be de-cluttered as well.3. Staging will increase your chances of a sale. In this kind of market, you must do everything in your power to set your home apart from all the others. It needs to be a home that buyers will remember. After!4. Staging shows the buyer that you have taken care of your home. If a buyer walks in and sees your home neat, orderly and organized, they will know that you have taken good care of your home. The overall feeling of the house will be that this is a home that has been cared for ~ the seen and unseen.(402) 541.8011 |

  13. 13. Referrals "Every home she presented us was a winner. With her exhaustive attention to detail, she set us up for a wonderful experience looking for our new home." RICK AND SHARON BRENING “In a word? Tireless. Jennifer Murdoch found my wife and I a beautiful home in Phoenix, Arizona and sold a beautiful home for us as well. Her behind the scenes work was accurate and relevant. For example, while setting up a list of “showings” she did not waste our time with homes she knew we would not want only to save the best for last. Every home she presented was a winner. With her exhaustive attention to detail she set us up for a wonderful experience looking for our new home.She spent enormous time finding out who we were not just what we wanted in a home. After all who we are defines what we need. On another occasion while showing our home to a potential buyer, she went so far as to keep our yellow lab puppy entertained while the buyers made their walk through. And of course she knew our dog by name. Many thanks, Jennifer!(402) 541.8011 |
  14. 14. Referrals "[Her] professionalism and caring attitude are the reason that I would work with [her] again the future and would gladly recommend [her] to ANYONE."- Frank V FRANK VANDERZEE "I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all that you have done for me and my family through the years. During the time that we both sold and bought our homes with you, your professional- ism and caring attitude are the reason that I would work with you again in the future and would gladly recommend you to ANYONE. In sales, care is a character trait that sets you apart from other agents that I have known or have heard about. Your attention to detail and ways in which you walked us through the home selling and home buying process was very comforting during those stressful times. You have gone above and beyond our expectations both times and I know that if we worked together again, you would do the very same, because that is you. Thanks!"(402) 541.8011 |
