    History of house on market

    History of house on market 13th Jan 20 at 4:11 PM
    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    There are many, many reasons why a property may be withdrawn from the market and then put back on again, which aren't necessarily to do with the seller not getting the price they wanted.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 exactly do you perceive to be the benefit of knowing a property was "4 months off and then 1 month on the market?"

    I fail to see what's wrong with that. We have some people locally who listed their house last spring, took it off in the autumn and now it's just appeared again. Yes, higher price too.

    I think they're a bit premature. Here, it looks lovely in May, so early summer's the best time to sell. Right now, the roads are full of mud and !!!! and like rivers in places, so with a lack of colour, other than grey and brown, it's less easy to sell the rural dream.

    But whatever time anyone looks, the same question will be asked: 'What's this property worth to me?' and it's the only one that matters.
    You have been warned!

    The longer its on the more desperate 'Some' will be and more willing to take a lower offer so it could be big advantage to the buyer, Its how WebuyAnyHouse companies tend make a profit.


    Many will just tell you go do one, and will gladly sit for months and years for the price they want, but you don't know until you try.

    Because usually that indicates people in denial about how much their house is worth, PropertyLog is also useful as a seller sentiment gauge, but of course there are ways to list and de-list to avoid the asking price history from being too obvious. Most properties listed at sensible prices don`t jump off and on the listings for years/months IMO.
