In this fast pace market we need to know what you are looking for and the neighborhood you want to live in before a home hits market! Have you ever missed out on an opportunity to purchase a property simply because you didn't know it was for sale? Likely, this was an OFF-MARKET SALE. What Does Off Market Mean in Real Estate? Off market real estate is a term used to describe properties that are for sale or have already been sold without any advertising on the MLS or public knowledge. Within the real estate industry, agents chat about buyer needs within their office. In turn, when an agent has a new listing coming up, it is often shared among agents within their brokerage prior to it hitting the market.
With proper documentation and permission granted by the seller, this agent can allow showings of the property before entering the for sale data into our MLS system. This means, only the agents within the brokerage know it is for sale, it never hits 3rd party websites like Zillow, Tulia or Realtor.com, and you may miss your chance to purchase your dream home! This is happening all over the market with our shortage of inventory. In fact, just this past month we have sold 4 off market just at The Carnahan Group.
