Exclusive Listings: A Pop Quiz

These two signs refer to local listings. One is on a website; one is on a yard sign:

What does the term “our exclusive” mean in a real estate context?

  • Only the listing agent can show this house or adequately describe its features.
  • These listings contain some special feature that makes them one-of-a-kind, and are therefore “exclusive.”
  • These listings are not for everybody; they’re only for those smart enough or rich enough to get them.
  • These properties have been listed on the MLS; any participating agent can show them to you and function as your buyer’s agent.

If you think you know the answer — or would like to know the answer, send me an email (marty@ask-marty.com) — or navigate over to this article that I posted a while ago.


Thanks for reading. If you are thinking about selling your home, please contact me. I can tell you what I bring to the table as a listing agent, and help you decide when is the right time to list.

When you are ready to start browsing homes or land in Dutchess, Columbia, and Ulster Counties, I encourage you to do so at my websiteAsk-Marty.com.

Because I am a member of THREE MLSs — Mid-Hudson MLS (Dutchess County), Hudson Valley Catskill Region MLS (Ulster County), and Columbia Greene Northern Dutchess MLS — you can search the entire region on both sides of the Hudson River. You can save properties that interest you and you can set the site to email you notices when new listings match your criteria. The site provides a great way for buyers or sellers to monitor a specific neighborhood or school district or type of property!
Best wishes,
