Finding your dream home can be tiring. Hours on end are spent scouring property websites, opening hundreds of tabs but never finding a home that matches your criteria.
Or, even if you do find the perfect home, there is always a risk that you will be outbid by another buyer.
Buying off-market increases your odds of finding the perfect home because it removes the element of competition; every home you see will be an exclusive. You will have access to properties that other buyers aren’t able to see.
This, in turn, means it’s more likely that you’ll find a home at a price you can afford. Instead of bidding against other buyers, if the seller decides to the sale, you settle on a price by coming to a mutual agreement.
Of course, you might still want to look on the open market, but registering to buy off-market just gives you more choice. Surely this can only bring you closer to the home you’ve been looking for?
There are those who believe that some of the best properties are sold without advertisement. Although there is no definitive proof of this, it certainly is true that many try to sell their homes off-market before listing them on the open market.
You might be wondering about the downfalls of buying off-market. In truth, there aren’t really any that are different to those that come with buying a house anyway. The main issue that can arise for buyers is the worry that their chosen home would have sold for less on the open market. This sort of speculation is unproductive, of course; the same home is as likely to have sold for more on the open market than it is for less or, even worse, to someone else.
When you buy off-market, you don’t have to deal with all this stress; for many, this is invaluable. Unlike the pressure of the open market, off-market sales are low-key and hassle-free. It’s good to make sure your finances are in order and that you know how much leeway there is in your budget so that your sale can be as smooth as possible.
At Invisible Homes, we hope that we’ve made the process even easier. All you have to do is create your buyer profile, complete with all your requirements. Then, sit back and wait for the off-market sellers to contact you. You decide whether you want to view their property and arrange with them what to do next.
