Where do I find off-market property listings?
Have you ever had friends or family share their excitement about a recent off-market purchase? If yes, you’ve probably heard about the convenience of avoiding months of research and visiting crowded Open Homes – and abstaining from competitive bidding wars.
But you might be a bit confused.
If it’s off the market and considered ‘just-listed’, is it really for sale?
The answer is yes.
‘Off-market’ is a well-known real estate term that refers to properties available for sale, but not advertised across the mainstream real estate channels. Since the marketing campaign hasn’t yet begun, it’s kind of a secret. Unless you’re in the know!
What’s the secret to tapping into off-market properties?
Don’t worry – you don’t have to head underground or join some sort of real estate gang. However, it does usually involve building a strong relationship with multiple real estate agents in your desired neighbourhood.
This can be very time-consuming as it usually involves:
- Calling various real estate agents and repeating your criteria to each.
- Asking agents to add you to off-market email databases and/or call you if something suitable comes up
- Sifting through a long list of emails from agents to find relevant properties
- Following up with the agents on a regular basis to check in and stay top-of-mind
