Some homeowners prefer discretion and flexibility when it comes to the home selling process. There are and have been a multitude of different ways to do this in real estate…
PLN (Private Listing Network) – It’s a database within MLS (Multiple Listing Service) that’s separate from the SLN (Standard Listing Network). A home listed on the PLN would be visible only to agents and brokers who have professional access to the MLS.
“Pocket Listing” – This is when an agent is “holding” a listing in their “pocket” …meaning only the listing agent (and the seller) knows about it and exclusively shares information with those who may be interested in purchase.
“Office Exclusive” – This is similar to a pocket listing in the sense that a very select few people have knowledge of the listing. In this case, anyone who works within a brokerage office would have access to/knowledge of an exclusive listing.
Compass has tapped into a modern method of selling homes that allows homeowners to keep their privacy while selling: Private Exclusive.
So, what’s a “Private Exclusive”?
A private exclusive listing is an off-market home that can be shared by a Compass agent directly with their Compass colleagues (over 15,000 top agents nationwide) and their buyers. Property details aren’t disseminated widely and won’t appear on public home search websites. There are several benefits, including a strategic way to test the market…learn more on compass.com.
