What is a Real Estate Pocket and Off Market Listing?
When it comes to the real estate market, there are all sorts of different property listings out there.
A pocket or off market listing, also known as a private listing is a real estate listing that is not made public or shared on a market listing service but is instead shared only with a private network of qualified buyers. The term can refer to both commercial and residential properties.
So why would a seller choose to go this route? There are a few reasons.
First and foremost, pocket and off market listings offer a certain level of privacy that public listings don’t. If you’re a celebrity or public figure, you may not want your home listing to be made public. A fine art collection and personal luxury items like exotic cars are another reason for confidentiality. We protect the privacy of our discerning clients and don’t allow intrusions from unqualified parties.

Advantages of a Pocket Listing
There are a few advantages to purchasing a pocket listing.
Get a Better Deal
One of the biggest advantages is that you’re likely to get a better deal on the home. Since pocket listings are not being advertised to the masses, there is less exposure and therefore fewer bidding wars for the home, which means that you’re more likely to be able to negotiate sale price reductions.
Less Competition Among Buyers
With pocket listings, you can often get a home before it hits the market. This is because in lieu of public marketing, pocket listings are usually only available to a select group of prospective buyers. If you’re able to get in on the action early, you can bypass the typical competitive market and snag a great deal on a home that hasn’t even been listed yet.
No Crowded Open Houses or Showings
Another advantage of buying a pocket listing is that you can save time and avoid the hassles that come with buying a property that’s listed on the MLS. For example, you won’t have to deal with open houses or showings.
If you’re looking for a home, and you’re not sure if a pocket listing is right for you, it’s important to consult with one of our real estate agents. They’ll be able to help you weigh the pros and cons as well as provide access to pocket listings, and help you make the best decision for your needs.
