Private Exclusives: Selling Your Home Off-Market + An Off-MLS Home In Corona Heights

Conventionally, homes are bought and sold using the MLS and distributed publicly via consumer portals like Zillow. Yet, buying or selling a home in this traditional way may not make sense in certain situations. From the inability to find the perfect place in the right neighborhood for the right price to juggling day-to-day life while selling your home, there are various reasons to buy or sell privately. Join me for a tour of a beautiful single-family home currently available for private sale in Corona Heights, plus top scenarios for selling your home off-market.

Finding Off-MLS Homes

Especially in a low inventory market, buyers are often curious about how to find off-market homes. For starters, you will want a seasoned professional to help advise you throughout the process. Landing an off-market home takes keen real estate expertise, strong negotiation skills, and deep knowledge of the local market, neighborhoods, and even existing homeowners. Working with an agent that belongs to a large brokerage with a majority market share like Compass is also essential for insight into exclusive brokerage-only private listings, as is choosing a real estate strategist with a strong network of agent relationships and an understanding of how to navigate a myriad of complex situations that may arise when buying a home privately.

While listing a property for sale publicly on the MLS provides additional exposure and can increase the potential sale price, there are valid reasons homeowners choose to sell privately. Some of the most common scenarios include privacy concerns, lack of staging due to tight move-out dates, and lifestyle factors such as avoiding the hassle of navigating public showings while living in the property, juggling family life, a busy career, or the property being tenant-occupied, etc. Fortunately, with vast experience, a solid local network, and proven sales strategies, I can help you evaluate the correct selling method for your lifestyle and successfully sell your home, on or off the market.
