'Tis The Season For "Temp Off Market" Listings
This week and last, I’ve seen countless emails like this from real estate professionals:
” My listing is off MLS for the holidays, but still available.”
” Withdrawn in MLS, but seller wants to sell before Spring!”
” Not back on MLS until January, but actively showing. Motivated Sellers!”
” Off MLS for holidays, but can still show with some notice.”
During the past two weeks, in Marin and San Francisco, almost 100 listings have been withdrawn or temporarily taken off the market- but they aren’t really off the market.
Contrary to popular belief, homes DO sell during the holiday season. Last year, in San Francisco alone, there were over 350 homes sold from November 15th through the end of the year.
So how do you market your listing during the holidays when it’s off MLS and your sellers still expect you to sell their home before Spring? You use PocketListings.net. Why? On Pocketlistings.net any post can be searched, linked to, ranked, Shared, emailed, marketed, and seen by potentially thousands of people around the world. We also feed every post you do to our Twitter page (over 1800 followers) and to our Facebook (over 1600 friends).
Your sellers may go dark for the holiday, but your listing doesn’t have to!
