Yes, there are several ways of doing this.
Option 1: In the first phase, only vague details are issued about a property, e.g. "Office building in the Greater Basel area". The prospective buyer contacts the vendor and he decides when, and to whom, he grants access to all of the data.
Option 2: If the selling option "Not public" is chosen, the property is only visible to people who have been personally invited to the selling process.
