The Chase Team's Winning Marketing Plan

Selling a home is one of life's most challenging events. In an often complex process, it takes the experience and knowledge of a Charlottesville real estate expert to save you time, money, and frustration along the way. By listing your property with The Chase Team, you will benefit from our years of real estate experience and knowledge of the Charlottesville, Albemarle County, and Wintergreen Resort real estate markets.

Research from the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® has shown that more than 90% of people searching for real estate view properties online, and about half of buyers (42%) start their home search online. That's why we employ the most up-to-date methods and home marketing strategies to target motivated home buyers who are searching on the Internet.

The Details of Our Real Estate Marketing Plan

Marketing is essential to capturing the attention of potential buyers for your home, your farm, your land, or your vacation property. Though most Charlottesville and Albemarle County home buyers search for real estate online, not all rely on the Internet. Through our use of print and online home marketing techniques, we attract the maximum number of qualified buyers for your property and help your property sell for the best possible price in the shortest amount of time.

As part of our winning marketing plan, we provide you with a client service webpage to give you up-to-date information about all of our home marketing efforts completed on your behalf. Here are further details about The Chase Team's home marketing plan.

Present Your Home in the Best Possible Light  

  • Suggesting improvements you can make to help prepare your property for showing
  • Photographing your property for use both online and in print
  • Creating a virtual tour and color marketing materials
  • Determining the optimal list price based on a Comparative Market Analysis of like properties in the area
  • Hosting, at your discretion, agent and public open houses

"We chose Brian over the other agents we interviewed because he was easy to talk to and we got the feeling he was very honest and knew what he was doing. But the biggest reason we chose Brian was because he knew how to market on the Internet."

— Fred & Carol Weismiller
