A “Coming Soon” home is generally a new listing that is not officially on the market or the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). A home listed as coming soon is expected to be listed for sale within 30 days. 

You Can Still Make an Offer

In real estate markets with limited inventory, sometimes listing agents will list a home as “Coming Soon” to try to stir up a little pre-market excitement. A real estate agent is typically not allowed to market nor advertise these expected “Coming Soon” listings directly. However, if you know about the pending listing, buyers can still make an offer.
