Pocket Listings: What You Should Know-North Shore Homes For Sale

Leave a comment

On Chicago’s North Shore Real Estate options like “pocket listings” or exempt listings have become a more mainstream option for quietly marketing a home for sale. If you haven’t already heard of these popular real estate terms, you probably will.  Here is what you’ll need to know as a North Shore home buyer or seller about this fast growing type and a few examples to review:

Pocket listing– an unofficial, off-market Property

Also known as a “quiet” or “off-market” or “exempt listing”, a pocket listing is a real estate property that an agent keeps tucked away. Though the seller may have a signed listing agreement with a real estate agent/broker, the property for sale isn’t officially listed in the MLS. Other traditional forms of marketing may be downplayed, too.

Example of a North Shore off-market property currently for sale:


Exempt or Pocket listings- what they mean for buyers and sellers

If you’re a North Shore seller, you may consider testing the waters with a pocket or exempt listing, even if it’s just for a week or two.

For buyers, it’s important to work with a local Chicago North Suburban agent who has established relationships with other agents in the community. That way, you can be certain that you’ll be made aware of all potential North Shore homes for sale.
