Are you ready to move but just can’t find a property to buy? Do you keep losing out at closing dates at which the world and his wife seem to be offering? Have you exhausted all that the ESPC, Rightmove and Zoopla have to offer? Have you done all those little titivating jobs to get your current home ready for market and now it seems like an endless waiting game?
You’re feeling frustrated, right?
Well, we might just have the solution you’re looking for. maloco homesearch is our very own property search engine that will help turbo-charge our clients’ searches to find their dream homes and give them a real and meaningful edge over their competition. It will, exclusively and uniquely, give access to our database of the 90% + of properties that match search criteria but which never come to market. Did you know that last year over 10% of homes sold in the Dunfermline area never came to market but were as a result of off-market deals? Developed and tailored for the Scottish market along with our partners at Homesearch Digital Limited we’re really excited about what this new and unique service can offer. maloco homesearch is we believe a genuine game-changer. It means we leave no stone unturned for our clients.
So, what is it?
Let’s start with what we really mean when we talk about off-market. In simple terms, off-market homes are homes which fit the exact needs of a buyer, but which are not yet publicly marketed. An off-market property is where a seller doesn’t want their property name or address to be marketed publicly, on portals, on social media, through digital advertising, in windows of high-street agencies, in print or with a ‘For Sale’ board. Instead, this group of would-be sellers are willing to sell but want a lower key, less fussy service and they’re happy for us to match their property with buyers who are searching for a home similar to theirs.
A very smart estate agent once said, “Every home out there is for sale. It’s only the motivated ones that put ‘For Sale’ signs up in their front gardens” so in effect what we’re actually talking about when we say off-market is really “off-portal”. Imagine a world where an estate agent puts a buyer and a seller together pro-actively without using ESPC, Rightmove or Zoopla and before another soul gets to know about it? A world where that buyer can potentially access 90% more homes than are actually shown on the portals. In many ways it’s what life was before the portals.
Our goal is to make sure we leave no stone unturned in helping clients with their property search, and that we do everything we can to help open as many new doors as possible. Buying off-market increases the 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. Instead of bidding against other buyers, if the seller decides to sell, you settle on a price by coming to a mutual agreement. Unlike the pressure of the open market, off-market sales are low-key and hassle-free.
