In the Washington metropolitan area, the competition among buyers is fierce. Properties are selling fast and high, and many buyers are finding themselves in multiple bidding situations. Whether you’re actively searching for properties or are simply considering a home purchase, the best way to get a leg up on the competition is to be the first to know about new listings.
See New Listings Before They Debut on the MLS
Most buyers use the local Multiple Listing Service (MLS), a database of properties that are available for sale, to find homes. As soon as a property is listed on the MLS, it becomes available to the public. Learning about homes through email listing alerts is one method of keeping up with the newest listings, but it doesn’t guarantee that you will be able to find a home (and make an offer) before another buyer.
Fortunately, buyers in the Washington metropolitan area are not limited to the MLS to find properties.
“Coming Soon” Listings Not Yet Available on the MLS
Buyers in our area have the opportunity to view homes that have not yet made their debut on the MLS — and are therefore not available to the public. Often known as “Coming Soon” listings, these properties offer buyers the chance of a lifetime to truly consider whether the home fits their criteria without having to worry about losing their potential dream home in a multiple bid scenario.
Because many buyers are unaware of “Coming Soon” properties, you have the advantage!
