Using Our Off-Market Property List in a Low-Inventory Market

If you are having trouble finding a home for your buyers in our current market, our off-market property database may be helpful to you.

Today we’re talking about a very unusual thing that only our brokerage has, which is our off-market property list.

My primary business is real estate investment. I buy over 100 fix-and-flip properties each year. In order to do that, I’m prospecting directly to sellers so that I can make them an offer on their home.

During that process, I’ve come across tons of sellers who will sell but not at a big enough discount for me to buy as a flip property. When this happens, the first option is to provide the owner with a traditional listing. If they don’t want a cash offer and it makes more sense for them to market their property, we will try to get a listing on the property.

It’s very common for the owner to tell us that they are interested in selling but they don’t want to sell to an investor and they don’t want to put their home on the market. However, if we can find a buyer internally within the brokerage, they can sell without going on the market.

Personally, going this route doesn’t make sense to me. I would list a property or sell to an investor. However, we get this request all of the time.  
The off-market database is very helpful in a low inventory market like ours.
When that happens, we first send the property to everyone on our Cameron off-market list. If you are on the list, you will get access to those properties.

Our off-market list is especially important because of the current market. We have a very limited supply of homes available. If you are working with buyers and having difficulty finding homes, this off-market property database is here for you.

We may not have the exact home that your buyer is looking for, but we may be able to help you out. After all, we are going on 20 to 40 one-on-one seller appointments every week, and a good majority of them end up in our off-market property list. If you bring them a reasonable offer, they will consider selling.

If you are not with our brokerage and you want to be added to our off-market property list, go to and enter your email address. That way, you can learn more about what we do, get added to the off-market property list, and get added to our private Facebook group, where we post these properties in real time.

If you have any other questions about our off-market property list, just give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to help you!
