What are 'whisper listings' in real estate? Red-hot housing market has them on the rise
Rising home prices threaten to overheat summer housing market
Realtor Sam DeBianchi gives an update on the ongoing ‘feeding frenzy’ in the housing market and explains how prospective buyers can still find inventory.
America's red-hot housing market shows no signs of cooling off with home prices rising by a record-breaking annual rate of 17.2% in March, according to the National Realtors Association.
As demand for houses shows no signs of abating, real estate agents have increasingly used a controversial practice known as pocket listings, or "whisper listings," to connect sellers and would-be home buyers.
A pocket listing is any home that goes up for sale but doesn't get listed on an area's multiple listing service (MLS), which is a private database that real estate agents use to share information.
