Our Unique Approach
At Casa & Country, we take pride in our pro-active and bespoke approach to the promotion of each property we are instructed to sell. We are constantly analyzing new marketing channels and we study all aspects of each property including its history, location and unique characteristics in order to promote it to maximum effect. We believe it is important to undertake a full marketing campaign to achieve the maximum visibility and a swift sale, and would suggest that you consider complying with the following recommendations:
Prior to signing the sales contract, we ask that vendors provide us with a full set of professional photography of the property (interior and exterior), its grounds and its location. In some cases we may also ask for aerial photos of the property. It is essential that we have high resolution, professional photos to work with for our brochures, our website, for the websites of our partner agents and for advertising and editorial opportunities in the British and International press. The quality of the photography plays an essential role in our marketing given that many prospective buyers study in-depth, the particulars we provide them with prior to committing to viewing the property. We are happy to make recommendations of Italian-based professional photographers.
Vendors collaborating with us under an exclusive instruction will receive a professional photo shoot as part of our service.
Recent studies have shown that nearly 90 % of property searches begin on-line. Casa & Country make significant investment into on-line initiatives, to ensure immediate international exposure for your property.
Our website has been designed and fully integrated to be at the forefront of online marketing, regularly resulting highly in the major search engines such as Google, yahoo and MSN. Our experience and attention to detail in the online arena, ensures that our clients receive maximum benefit from this method of marketing.
Direct Promotion & Private Clients
Our list of registered applicants employ us to search on their behalf for suitable properties. A sort of personal shopper service, but for real estate. Our registered clients demand a high level of service and efficiency, and regular in-depth reports on properties which meet their criteria. Once your property is listed with us, our system will cross-reference it with our private client index.
Press & Media
All of our online activity is backed by traditional media advertising in both Italian and International publications such as the Financial Times, House&Home, Wall Street Journal, Case & Ville and House 24. This activity is undertaken in accordance with our annual marketing plan to deliver constant, high quality exposure.
