At Story House Real Estate, we revolve around our clients, and our proven systems allow us to provide a seamless, effective, and efficient home selling experience.
Why Work with a Team?
Why have just one person doing the legwork to get your home sold when you can have a whole team behind you? It’s nearly impossible for a single agent to give you the attention that you deserve, when the hundreds of tasks necessary to market and sell your home for top dollar require a wide array of skills. With the largest sale of your life, you should have a team of specialized professionals by your side.
Photos of your home are of the utmost importance. They are the first impression buyers get of a property. Potential buyers don’t begin by reading the details—they look at the pictures. Photos can make or break a home sale so you’ll never see us taking photos with our smartphones. We only have professional photographers using state-of-the-art equipment because as they say—a picture is worth a thousand words.
We want buyers to leave your home with something memorable we have professionally designed brochures with several photos placed throughout the home.
Targeted Email Campaign
With 1,000+ agents in the Charlottesville area all juggling a handful of different clients at any given time, it can be challenging to keep up with every new listing that comes onto the market. Within 24 hours of your home being listed, we will send a customized email campaign to the entire Charlottesville Area Association of REALTORS®. With this, we can highlight the home and announce it to our co-brokering agents, but can also add a bit more detail about who might be a good buyer for this home and highlights what we think they could otherwise miss.
Social Media Audience
We have a strong social media presence with over 20,000 followers between our Facebook & Instagram accounts. You can rest assured knowing that your property is getting maximum exposure in the social sphere.
Our website is equipped with individual property pages for your listing as well as search engines that allow for our site visitors to find homes within a specific price range, neighborhood, school district, and property type or size. Our site provides many resources for home buyers that make it a heavily utilized real estate resource for Central Virginia.
Our search engine optimization is closely monitored to ensure we are at the top of the search results for people are looking for real estate in the area. This means our listings receive massive online exposure.
When you list with us, we’ll give your listing the attention it deserves across many of the most popular internet platforms such as CAAR MLS, Zillow, Homesnap, Realtor.com, social media sites, LinkedIn, and more!
