Why do homes show as for sale on the Internet, but are already sold?

Check out our latest video in our Frequently Asked Real Estate Questions series.



Often homes are sold, but under a contingency period which may last a few days to much longer for buyers to conduct their due diligence or even to obtain their mortgage. As a result, some sellers ask for the home to be continued to be marketed although they often then reject showings because they have not kept the home in show ready condition. However on third party sites such as Zillow, Trulia and the homes shows as still being for sale. This is one of the reasons to work closely with a Realtor who knows the fact from fiction and who represents you and will help you find the information which is important and analyze it. 

One of the benefits of the internet is there is lots of data available, and one of the problems with the internet is there is lots of data available. You need to understand it, and know what is important and what is not.
