Off Market Sales Gaining Momentum
In the past I’ve talked about the ‘Omaha Shuffle’ which is the movement of long-term Omaha residents selling one property and moving to buy another or in other words a good old fashioned property transaction. A lot of the time these transactions are being done ‘off market.’ In the past few weeks I have sold two properties off market, one in Omaha and one in Point Wells. Though it wasn’t off market, and as predicted last month, 6 Tio Lane in Omaha sold very quickly – in fact, in just 7 days. ‘Off market' essentially means the property is for sale with little or no marketing, with the vendors wanting a discrete sales process.
At the moment, I have over 1000 people on my database, many of whom are active buyers. So when a vendor comes to me and wants to do an off market sale, I can quite quickly match the property to the right buyer and get the sale done. Currently available off market, I have a wide variety of properties. An entertainers dream I have a four bedroom, two bathroom luxury home. Open plan with wrap around decks and its own private pedestrian walkway to the beach. Price on application. View property video here. I have another at 271 Mangatawhiri Rd Omaha – a private paradise backing onto the “lake.” Three bedrooms, two living areas, 2.5 bathrooms. Price Range $2.2m to $2.3m. View video of property here. Also enquire about 35 Tuna Place, Omaha. Next to the tennis courts and close to a playground it features three bedrooms, two bathrooms and open plan living. Price $1.65m by negotiation. While in Point Wells, I have 2 Shearwater Place currently for sale off market with a motivated vendor, this modern and elegant home features four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Asking price is $1.775m. Interest rates remain low, Omaha is reportedly one of the best currently performing coastal markets, and is great time to buy or sell. Prices remain firm and quality properties are achieving great prices. Once completion of the new motorway extension from Johnstone’s tunnel becomes closer, property prices are predicted to rise further. For any of my off market listings, don’t hesitate to contact me. Or if you think selling your property off market could suit your needs, I’m always happy to discuss.
