WHY DOES OFF-MARKET MATTER?
AND HOW DOES IT BENEFIT YOU?
Why sell or buy off market? In addition to the Multiple Listing Service, being able to access off-market opportunities is an added benefit and service Patricia has to offer both her buyers and sellers.
It can be beneficial to buyers to access properties for sale that are not published on the M.L.S. Patricia’s buyers can rest assured that every avenue is explored to find their dream home. Off-market listings are just one more way to “leave no stone unturned” in finding your perfect home. There can potentially be less competition if a seller chooses to sell without full market exposure. The downside can be that neither the buyer nor seller get to confirm the fair market value, by not knowing what the property could have sold for if it had been fully exposed through the traditional methods of the Multiple Listing Service (the M.L.S.).
For sellers, off-market can be beneficial depending upon your circumstances. For example, a seller may say, “we do not want to expose our home in the traditional way so that the general public knows, but we are still interested in selling to a qualified buyer.” In this case announcing their home to Patricia’s off-market networking groups is the perfect fit, so that only qualified buyers connected to real estate agents that are members of this group know about their home.
Patricia is a member of the 4 off-market networking groups for Marin County and San Francisco.
