This blog article is a little different than any others I have written. If you listened to the podcast last week you will recall that some of the properties moving in San Carlos right now are moving off-market. This is happening more and more. Why? Inventory levels have been low and uninspiring. Additionally, before making a move in this economy buyers and sellers want certainty. People want to know exactly what they are going to get for their home before committing to their future house. Moving a home off-market eliminates this concern and all of the commotion that comes with putting a home on the open market. Additionally, some folks who may have casually been looking for a home suddenly find one and then instantly have to sell their home in a short amount of time in order to pursue their next home. This type of situation is another ideal candidate for an off-market transaction.
I’ve had a few of my clients ask me if I could put something on the blog to try and shake loose some inventory. Not a bad idea. The following is a list of buyers and sellers who may be open to working a deal off-market for the right situation. If you have any questions or further interest, please contact me. If you have a realtor, please have your realtor contact me.
