Home Builder with Whitehead Homes
I just completed a very nice home in Northlake (Georgetown) and I have had a ton of positive remarks. I told my agent to put the home on the market when I first started the home so it shows it has been on the market a couple of hundred days - not good. She told me the negatives of having it entered prior to completion but I thought it wouldn't be around until the end so it wouldn't affect me. The home is just now completed and when looking at the listing it is as if it's been sitting for a long time and it hasn't. My agent is wonderful but I just wished there was a way to start the time on the MLS at 1 day -- she told me the only way that can happen is to take it off the market for 3 months which isn't an option. darn ... I wished I would've listened to her when I started the home. Live and learn

Hi Louis,

I believe the 3 month period is inaccurate. Here in New Hampshire, after one month after a listing has expired, it has to be listed as new. I highly recommend that you stay with your agent as she probably knows your place the best, but do ask her to call her local MLS listing service to verify the time for your area. One month should put you at the right time to hit those folks whose children are ending the school year and are ready to make a purchase... we can hope :-)
