Is it possible to see the listing history of a current house, SINCE THE LAST SALE date?

I know I can view history of a house and when it was sold, but is it possible to see if it has been taken off the market and put back on without selling?

Thanks

    Zoopla sometimes shares this kind of information with links to which selling agent advertised it.

    There's no single point of saying "Here's the address, here's all the listings."

    You might be able to find previous listings, but they certainly aren't guaranteed. All that's officially kept is the LR listing of previous sale dates/prices (and not all transactions are recorded there).

    Thanks for the replies.

    So in short, 5e answer is no/potentially.

    This means anyone selling a property could list it and if they don’t get the price they want in 6 months or so, take it off the market for a bit and resist? That means potential buyers wouldn’t be put off by the length of time it’s been on the market...

    Ours was in the market two years ago. If you put my address into Google it does pull up the old listing on Zoopla. We took it off after 3 months because we changed our minds. It's probably about to go back on again in February. We just weren't ready.

    Every listing is possibly recorded on sites like zoopla if it sells or not. But If people have been watching the target market for a year or 2 they will possibly just remember it anyway.


    And the EA may tell them!

    I know when I first put my house on the market, one of the questions on the seller's information form was whether there had been any failed transactions within the last twelve months - and to give details, if so.

    There are many, many reasons why a property may be withdrawn from the market and then put back on again, which aren't necessarily to do with the seller not getting the price they wanted.

    As regards the length of time before a house can be relisted as a new instruction, there are rules about this: https://hoa.org.uk/2017/02/the-new-rules-for-selling-your-home-on-portals-like-rightmove/

    And yet prices going up and then back down to be listed as reduced and bumped still seems to happen.

    Quite simply, no.

    Even if such information existed, what possible use would it be given there are 101 different reasons why a house may be temporarily taken off the market?

    What possible use? You’re joking right? More data is better than less data. iIf you know a property has been on the market for 1 month, rather than 11 months on the market, 4 months off and then 1 month on the market again, you might not look at it in the same way...

    No, as I said, there could be 101 different reasons why the property was taken off the market and you would have absolutely no idea what that reason was. (E.g. joint owners breaking up, joint owners reconciling, owner losing their job, owner getting new job, owner becomes pregnant, owner has a baby, owner has serious accident, owner dies, owner can't find suitable next property, owner's onward sale falls through, the list goes on...)

    What exactly do you perceive to be the benefit of knowing a property was "4 months off and then 1 month on the market?"
