How to Find and Buy Off-Market Properties

Have you ever noticed a home that sold without even a for-sale sign in the yard? Often sold by word-of-mouth or as "pocket listings," these off-market properties may provide you an opportunity to see and purchase your dream home before it hits the market. That is how we found our Florida home in the height of the last boom market.

In my case, I began scouring the classifieds when my Realtor came up short on houses. In the end, I discovered a property that was an FSBO (for sale by the owner) but he refused to work with my agent. So I found myself a home and a new career in real estate after putting the deal together on my own.

What is an unlisted home?

Also known as off-market homes, they are houses and condos not yet on the multiple listing service (MLS). These are homes where the owner is still deciding when to sell, homes previously listed but didn't sell, or even celebrity's homes that demand anonymity. Unlisted properties may be more common in areas where it's a sellers' market with more buyers than sellers or limited real estate inventory.Cobblestone
