Question by Mike: Home for Sale…not Listing in MLS?
There is this house that I saw a few weeks ago on the internet, and it seemed very nice. I noticed it’s no longer in MLS but it still has a lock-box on the front door with a “Home for Sale” sign on the front lawn. Could there be a possibility that the home is still for sale? Or perhaps the new owners just haven’t moved in yet? I called the listing agent…thought Id ask the board as I wait for his call…thanks!
Answer by Landlord
It is either off the market, or an offer was accepted for it. The lock box is often left for the selling agent to present the key. The sign is left up as long as they can get away with it because they want people like you calling, so they can sell you a different house.
