Asking the question “what is a pocket listing?” can lead to discovering a flurry of unfavorable online reviews.But selling without the MLS – when done in the right way, can bring a number of distinct advantages. These include:
- Reduced Hassle: By listing your property with a niche group of the highest producing agents, you’ll eliminate having to give multiple showings to less serious buyers – saving you time and hassle. This is something you can also benefit from with a pre-MLS listing.
- Heightened Privacy: For professional or personal reasons, you might not want a listing to be marketed to everyone. Keeping a home off-MLS means your property will be marketed in the most discreet way possible.
- Helps Market a house that Shows Poorly: Some sellers don’t have time to renovate a property before it goes to market. But an elite agent has the ability to persuade the buyers they deal with to look beyond flaws and see potential.
