Secret New Builder Inventory
Since My Florida Lifestyle Realty (at Keller Williams Realty) as been posting Central Florida real estate new construction every day, we’ve noticed many of the local area builders do not allow their homes to go beyond the MLS. In Realtor® terms, they don’t allow IDX, which is our real estate data feed. The builders block their great listings from syncing to any of the search portals including Realtor.com, Zillow and Trulia, somehow making their listings a secret. Unfortunately, this also blocks their homes from showing on our website too!
These secret new builder inventory homes are listed and many are already complete and ready to go. Also, the new build construction homes are also really good deals! The builders offer incentives such as closing costs, appliance packages, and other great options to make it easier for you to buy a new home. That’s the good news! However, we can only advertise or show them directly from the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) only, since the IDX data feed is blocked!
We have contacted a number of builders already and asked why they are trying to keep their listings a secret. They don’t allow us to post their great listings online and share them with our clients. Currently, they have not yet responded to our inquiry on their “Secret Listings”.
So far, the only way we know to get around this known issue to set up a custom home search in the MLS for any buyer who is seriously looking at buying new housing construction now (or even some time this year). We’ll manually set up your custom home search in the Multiple Listing Service for you so you can get notified regularly of these great deals. The new listings are delivered daily by email and they are only the homes that match each buyers exact search criteria.
Yeah, we know, this is pretty old school! Until we can get the builders to think clearly and share their listings, it’s the best option we have so you don’t miss out on the really good deals on brand new inventory homes out there. It will save you from driving around from builder to builder searching for the good deals. We get notified of new homes every day!
