I like to do that when a team member has a "coming soon".... I'll post everywhere and I will do a Realbird website too for the listing.... gets Google juice before the syndication companies take over the first page of the SERP.... I have to work hard to get a few titles.... my getting there first is a big head start....

Our MLS forbids premarketing before posting in the MLS. Agents who do, can be fined. It's best for the client to obtain maximum exposure anyway, so while I'd love to do it for marketing me, it's not best for my client.

Yes.  Representing flippers gives me a great opportunity to market the listing before it comes on the market.  I usually start the second we close escrow on the purchase.  I use my site, my newsletter, AR, Realbird, social media, in person networking events and soon Buyer Hunt as well.  As a matter of fact, it's one of the key things I've learned from Katerina Gasset!

I used to but I kept forgetting to go back and mark them as closed. They also needlessly kept adding to the DB size (the same reason I recently made a market report change on my site too). Now I post that information on 3rd party sites (like AR) and blitz locally with plenty of social/print media.

We have five days to get it live on the MLS merry go round. If you have IDX, hard to make it live before the MLS feed trickles in to enhance with all the extra narrative, video embed and other bells, whistles. We produce the real estate video first so we can add it to the mls fill in the blanks. So yes, this goes live and we have sold a place before the listing showed up on the RTZ and our own three personal branded sites.

Not a big issue for me... doing this is more for double-ending a sale and I prefer not to be a dual agent. And our MLS does not allow us to market a home without an actived listings. Zillow and Realtor.com syndicate through an mls number in any event.

Yes, as a pocket. It is common here to market a new coming-soon listing few weeks before hitting mls.... since inventory is so low it does work.

We do this sometimes using the "coming soon" category in MLS.   However, it is really in the seller's best interest to expose the property to the widest possible audience of home buyer's so they are receiving a true fair market offer for the home.  In our market right now, multiple offers are the norm and a single lead from your website might not lead to the highest offer.

As others have mentioned you do have 48hrs in most areas, and some areas allow extensions of this but you would have to ask yourself who are you doing this for? Yourself or the Seller who you have a fiduciary responsibility to...if you design a method that can do both these things while marketing the listing yourself before allowing others to see it (which I believe you can if you structure it correctly) then its sounds like a good idea.

However your goal is only self-serving then you might want to double check your ethics and honestly ask if your method is serving your client or not.  Peter Mark  interesting post share Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, ePRO, CRS, RCS-D

We do this if your seller wants it.  We have a category called "Hidden Inventory."  This is a great place for us to put off market property, withdrawn from MLS but still under contract, or property with a listing contract that the seller still needs to get ready for showings. But it is always determined by the seller.  The seller needs to know he/she is limiting their chance to sell by not exposing the property to the full MLS and all the agents who may have buyers that the property will work for.

Our MLS allows us to pre-market with a signed Contract to do so prior to listing it in MLS and I do that. Pre-marketing helps my sellers get top dollar AND sell in the shortest amount of time too. Some folks are just too lazy to get the additional document signed and submitted to our MLS to do so!

It also gives us the opportunity to get the Google juice to our own sites, rather than Z or R.com!
