How Agents Discover Off-Market Properties

You can find homes for sale without the tight market competition.

Low inventory and high demand can only mean one thing: higher buyers’ competition and not enough homes to buy. When this happens, the chances of buying the ideal home for you or your family are slim, even if you search online. But just when you think about giving up the search, I will tell you a secret that will help you find the perfect home without the competition—off-market properties.

Off-market properties are properties for sale but are not yet listed on the multiple listing service. Because the public doesn’t yet know about this property, it means there’s little to no competition. So, how does one find off-market properties? The answer is simple—ask your agent because agents are the first ones to know. Here at RMG Real Estate Network, our team learns of off-market properties in these three ways:

  1. Agents work hard on their prospecting. This involves canvassing in neighborhoods by knocking on doors and sending out mail, among others, which is no easy task as this would entail a lot of time, effort, and energy.

  1. Agents maintain great relationships and continuously build their network. They will communicate with other agents in the field and ask about potential sellers in your target price range and neighborhood. 
  1. Agents have access to homeowners who are planning on selling their homes. Since selling a property isn’t a light decision that anyone can make on a whim, the owners typically maintain communication with agents to help iron out their planning process. 

Not all agents are built the same, but a great agent will have all the resources and network of contacts that you need to find your home without having to worry about competing with other buyers in the market. So, if you’re planning to buy a home, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our team at RMG Real Estate Network will be more than happy to walk you through everything you need to know to land your dream home.
