As buying agents, we believe that relying solely on MLS® listings is a passive approach. We don’t wait for opportunities to come to us - we go out and find them.
Buying a home off-market simply means that the home was not listed on MLS. MLS is the system most widely used to promote and find houses for sale, but it’s not the only way. With a little creativity and innovation, there are other means to find owners who are interested in selling under the right circumstances.
There are generally two scenarios that lead to sellers offering their properties for sale off-market. The first is that they were planning to sell in the future, but had not yet reached the point of listing. The second is where a homeowner prefers the privacy and convenience of not listing their home to the general public.
