Finding Canceled & Expired House Listings 101

Finding Canceled & Expired House Listings 101

Time is money. Expired house listings are a great lead source for real estate professionals. But the traditional ways to find expired real estate listings are outdated, time-consuming, and inefficient, leaving real money on the table. Whether a listing is canceled, withdrawn, or simply expired, validating that lead means a lot of legwork. Searching through the MLS is the first move, but act too soon due to lack of information, and there could be legal implications. It’s a delicate balancing act.

Different Types of Real Estate Listings

While Target Trace™ can help pinpoint essential information for expired house listings – especially the all-important owner contact details – it’s also effective for all different types of real estate listings. Most agents and real estate professionals would breathe a sigh of relief at spending less time searching through multiple types of databases and public records trying to find ownership information, property and contact details associated with expired real estate listings. With Ivy Data, all it takes is an address and the exclusive Target Trace feature does the rest, for just pennies per match. No match, no charge. Real estate agents will be able to trace the information they need for finding homes with a withdrawn status.

Expired Real Estate Listings

There are many reasons for expired real estate listings. Any number of factors such as overpricing, poor staging, market oversupply, inefficient marketing, and inexperienced real estate agents can result in expired real estate listings.

Withdrawn Status in Real Estate

Withdrawn listings in real estate don’t always mean the house is not for sale. For homeowners, selling their home is a stressful and time-consuming process, requiring a lot of work keeping everything ‘showing ready’. They may decide to sell for personal or financial reasons – from downsizing, to job transfers or any number of circumstances. Low interest in the listing, overpricing, deciding to make some upgrades, or giving the listing a rest so it doesn’t sit on the market too long are all reasons why you may encounter a withdrawn status in real estate.

How to Find Expired Real Estate Listings

Public records, buying lists from different sources, creating scripts for emails, calls, and letters can also work when you’re trying to find expired house listings, but they are definitely hit and miss, and take up valuable time that could be better spent elsewhere – making money! All of these methods, along with social media ads and other marketing strategies, can help find expired real estate listings. But the truth is that without a faster, more efficient way to generate qualified leads, agents are leaving real money on the table.
