Check: Is That Canceled Sacramento Listing Re-Listed?

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

When I withdraw a listing from MLS and re-enter it as a new listing, that is done for one purpose and one purpose only. To reset the days on market. I am not the only Sacramento Realtor who realizes how buyers tend to gravitate toward new listings and ignore older listings. A home can be on the market for 6 months, come back as a new listing at the RIGHT TIME and bingo, it sells in one day.

However, with that comes a downside. First, we have the agents who call sellers to drill them about what did their lousy no-good agent do for them that she could not sell the house. Which drives sellers nuts with their aggressiveness, not to mention clueless behavior. Agents: don't go chasing canceled, expireds and withdrawns without checking to see if the home has been relisted. Further, contacting another agent's seller without permission is a violation of the COE.

Second, we have agents like the one I enountered a few days ago. You can read more about this in my personal blog today at this link: Why Did You Cancel the Listing?

Aloha, Elizabeth- - -I learned long before entering real estate,  "assume"  is dangerous.  Not all multiple listing services allow resetting of days on the market but when/where it is allowed, the practicedoes not negate any stupidity of the function of the real estate. Oh, well. Or something like that.

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents, we can not reset the days in MLS, we used to be able to but not any longer. Now, we can withdraw unconditionally, wait 60 days, put it back on the market with a new MLS number.
Sometimes, I wonder about agents, why wouldn't she check the listing by address?

Elizabeth- I'd imagine that you and the other more experienced agents have to have the patience of Job when you deal with agents who don't know the ropes.

Good morning, Elizabeth... that relisting game was stopped cold by our MLS some years ago. If a property is withdrawn, it must be withdrawn for 90 days to take the DOM count back to one day. 

The vultures who immediately start calling withdrawns and expireds are really annoying, however. So often, I see a home relisted with their current agent or a new one within 24 hours and they should wait to see what the situation is before starting to call anothre agent's clients.

Elizabeth, our MLS has made it hard to reset the days also.  We have to expire for 30 days, then relist.

Beth Atalay Our MLS made a compromise. We can reset the days on market but not the cumulative days on market. But few people even know what that means, LOL.

Kathy Streib I try to show patience with newer agents because everybody was new once. What can be irritating are the agents who pretend that they know what they are doing and don't ask for help.

Nina Hollander Our practice is to cancel the listing and then relist it by signing all new listing paperwork. I can't count the number of times that jealous agents in Sacramento flag my listing and accuse me of not getting new paperwork signed so poor MetroList is forced to ask for and review my paperwork. One thing former escrow officers know how to do is maintain impeccable paperwork, LOL.

Joan Cox If we want to reset the cumulative, we need to wait 30 or 45 days, don't recall exactly because I don't reset the cumulative. Just the front end, the days on market that shows in MLS as dual numbers, like 0/95.

Elizabeth, how funny, periodically I do the same on my vacant lots but forewarn my sellers to get ready for the harassment:) some of my sellers are funny because they make the strong agents squirm by asking them so do you look at the active listings???Endre
