With inventory at near record lows and even overpriced homes seeming to sell quickly and with multiple offers, how are buyers supposed to find a home in the luxury market of Manhattan Beach?
In this day and age, with buyers searching online, and just about every bit of information being available on the home search sites the minute they come on the market, the answer may come down getting the information before others do…….so how do you get access to these off market homes, pocket listings, and upcoming listings?
The answer lies with finding the right local real estate expert…usually an agent that has worked in the specific market for some time with access to networks and information. We generally hear of 5 – 10 “off market” or pocket listings a week through various channels, partners within our company and networks with agents throughout the area. Other agents trust us with this information as they trust us and know that we often have buyers that may be looking for just what they’re selling. In addition we will often share our upcoming listings with these same trusted agents and it’s often a win-win for all involved.
With so many homes selling off market or prior to being listed, it may be the only way to have an advantage in this market. If you are interested let us know precisely what you are looking for fill in our Manhattan Beach pocket listing request, or contact us directly. Unlike traditional home searches it’s critical to not only know just what you are looking for, but to be ready to act the moment the home hits the market so we highly recommend getting prequalified if there is a loan and having everything in order and ready to go.
