Ask your Realtor to find out the history of the listing and if there is anything going on with the property.  Do not guess.  ASK.

Good Luck on your offer!  I hope you get what you want!  That's funny, my kids go to Mustang and we live in Yukon.  We've only been in the area a few years and can recognize that the fued is strong!  Lol!

There are several reasons for this. The agent might be putting the home on the market under a new MLS number so it pops up on any "new listing" searches. There could have been a mistake by the person putting the information into the MLS and had to cancel the listing to redo. The Seller may be totally undecided as to what to do. In this case the listing agent needs to get a better grasp of the Seller's needs.

I found out why.  the couple had a baby, took it off market for first few weeks, put it back on, discovered that was too much and waited few more weeks.  probably writing an offer on it with our realtor today.  am nervous.

Yes, Connie  I am from Mustang.  and I do have a shirt that says this, but my kids go to Yukon.  however...they aren't in highschool yet so when we go to homecoming we sit on mustang side and i wear it under a hoodie.  I know who has the best team! and plan on moving in town soon! if our offer goes through!!!

I would call and ask the listing agent, make careful notes.  In our MLS system there is a 'history of listing' or listing archive that might answer that question. Otherwise, it is not uncommon for a buyer to change their mind to yes, no, yes which could cause the change in status.  This would be the most common response but call,pursue the issue until you have the answers you need. It is called 'full disclosure'.   Another reason is that the owners could be in the midst of a re-finance or finding possible repairs that might be needed where showing the property could be inconvenient.  Ask, ask, ask.  Most often you will get the right answer.

I have seen two such cases in Sunnyvale, CA over the last two. In the cases I observed, my belief was that the listing agent was manipulating the MLS. I will use one case. In this case, the home fluctuated violently in price - it started at $1.1M, then went yo $1.0M, then $650K, then, $900K, then $1.0M again. The put-in/pull-out did two things: i) the listing was noticed by many people (it spanned more price search options) and ii) it reset the superficial DOM (days on market)  field in the MLS (novice buyers will be misled by the DOM since most do not understand nor are told by their agents about  continuous days on market).
My personal view is that in many cases this is just agents being agents in desperate times. I do not know about the specific listing you reference in your post.

Many reasons as all have said. Sometimes sellers are "fishing" and not really sure they want to sell. They may have changed the price thinking there were so many calls or showings that price was too low. Best to call the Realtor.

It could be that there was a mistake in the listing or the listing feed syndication.  As suggested below, the seller may not have wanted showings during a particular period.  Especially during the holidays, most homeowners would rather not have the interuptions.  The sellers may even be discouraged and might be a little wish-washy. 

But, if you are interested in this particular property I can look it up for you.  Just email me the address.

Since we have no knowledge of the property, the best thing will be to call the agent.  These on/off situations happen for a variety of reasons, some are errors in storing the data prior to listing day when one clones a listing, other times is delays in completing work, or as it was mentioned by Christine, it could be that the sellers are seeking a loan modification or re-finance.  Just call the listing agent to find out what happened.  Good luck!

All good points from Connie. In addition, if a client decides to refinance their home, it usually cannot show up on any MLS as for sale so clients will pull them off the market during that process.

There could be a number of reasons, the sellers might have had some activity going on and wanted no showings? or perhaps a repair was being done, perhaps a legal issue with the sellers (messy divorce deciding terms of listing etc).  If you're really interested in the house, just contact a Realtor to be your buyer's agent, or the listing Realtor about the house and ask about the on/off thing.

on additional note...Like your screen name! guessing you must have grown up in Mustang! saw somebody wearing a shirt that said that for homecoming football game!- literally laughed out loud!!!
