Hidden Gold: Off-Market Real Estate Listings

Buying property is always a major undertaking in anyone’s life. All the more so in Beaumont, TX and surrounding areas current market — now that the whole idea of a “quick flip” is little more than a fading memory. Today’s 2012 Southeast Texas real estate buyer knows he or she should be buying for the long haul.

But how do you find that house – the one that just feels right — when you have already looked at all the real estate listings on the market and still can’t find one that fits the bill?

The answer could come from a source that is easy to overlook. It’s off the well-worn path you have already been down, and it just might provide the hidden gold you have been looking for. It comes under the heading of off-market real estate listings.

There is no standard form such offerings take, but they do often share one feature. The seller or developer usually wishes to maintain a low profile, and generally places a high value on keeping the offering and dealings out of the public eye. Sometimes the reason has to do with keeping publicized price levels at a higher than rock bottom level. International living.com reports that potential buyers may even be “required to sign a confidentiality agreement” for off-market real estate listing transactions. However, the tradeoff may be access to a premium home at a great price.
