Call an estate agent to discover off-line properties for sale

14.04.2020

Are you looking to buy the perfect property, perhaps to extend your portfolio or to upsize to your dream family home, but struggling to find the right one on the usual property portals and agents’ websites? Have you considered that there may be unlisted properties which agents aren’t openly marketing?

Take the hard work out of your property purchase

Tod Anstee can help you. Their residential sales team not only markets a number of fantastic properties on their website, but also has several other properties within their portfolio that are being quietly marketed off-line. Numerous high-end properties in West Sussex exchange hands without ever hitting the open market, and the next one to be sold could be yours.

How do i find a house that is marketed offline?

Some vendors choose to market their properties “offline”; this could be to privately test the market, or maybe to secure a discreet sale with the right buyer. Whatever the reasons, these off-line properties often come with great deals, less public competition, and quicker sale times. For many buyers in West Sussex, an off-line property is the perfect choice. But if the properties are off the open market, how do you find them?

There are two main types of unlisted properties

  1. Descreet Sale – Where a seller has an appointed estate agent, but they do not wish the property to be advertised on the well-known property portals or agent’s website.
  2. Advance Sale – These are properties that will be coming on the market, but later in the year. This sometimes happens over the winter months, where sellers believe that the property will sell better in the Spring when the exterior is looking its best. And so, until then, the estate agent quietly markets the property allowing only a few qualified buyers to view it.

Tod Anstee offers a discreet buy / seller connection service

For each of these types of off-line situations, the trick to finding the properties is to call your estate agent and enquire directly with a senior member of the Residential Sales team. The best way to find the perfect property, is to therefore contact an estate agent and ask if they have any properties privately on their portfolio that match your requirements. When contacting the agent make sure you are completely open and honest about what you are looking for and how much you are looking to invest.
