Pocket Listings – Unlisted, unadvertised lofts in Downtown L.A.

Many potential sellers of Downtown lofts have rental tenants that they do not want to upset, or are otherwise not ready yet to be bothered themselves or to commit to revealing the property fully to the public.  There is a type of listing for those who want to receive offers and sell the property without public listings and even without any showings to the general public.

There is one real estate team of Downtown Los Angeles loft specialists that has the largest number of fully prepared buyers under contract and ready to purchase.  As many as 36 buyers with financing pre-approvals are looking today for special access to private listings.  While most buyers are afraid or uncomfortable placing an offer before seeing a property, these special VIP buyers are fully educated on what to look for, know how to take advantage of special opportunities and are ready to place offers on Downtown lofts and condos.  These buyers are the most astute, and are excited to place offers on properties that give an exclusive opportunity to the buyer.

The biggest secret in Downtown real estate is that 45% of transactions in the past 3 years were unlisted properties, not on the MLS and not on the internet.  Most buyers and their agents did not know the properties were available for purchase.  Only VIP buyers had access to the properties.

Here are the type of listings that sellers can take advantage of to get offers without fully publicizing the property for sale:

  • Pocket Listings – a listing that an agent shows to their clients only
  • Prelisting – a listing for the purpose of gathering leads and momentum before listing on the MLS
  • Private Listing – a listing that is not advertised at all for the purposes of privacy or secrecy
  • Unlisting – a listing for the purpose of receiving the largest number of offers while maintaining the level of privacy desired by the seller

With nearly half of transactions taking place off the market, buyers and sellers who are not connected with unlisted properties are missing out on a major slice of today’s real estate market, including many of the best deals, fastest and easiest transactions.
