Can we get information on expired listings?

We are looking at houses now, but many of the listing that appeared 2 or 3 months ago no longer appear and I don't believe they were sold.

When a buyer asks me about an expired listing, i always call the last listing agent unless i know the scoop and talk to them about the position of the property. Many times you will find the property can still be bought. Just did that today for a client who i couldn't find a active listing for that fits their criteria and i was successful!!!

Be sure to call a real estate agent.  Sometimes the listing has expired, sometimes the seller withdraws the listing from the market.  A real estate agent should be able to tell you what's going on with most houses in their area.

There are many reasons why you may not find the listing that you saw a few months ago, besides a listing expiring, the seller may have taken the property off the market, the home went into foreclosure and the REO has not decided to list the property or a contigency may be in effect.

A Realtor can help you research the properties and tell you what happened and search for any additional properties within your criteria.  A good realtor is a valuable resource, which should be happily available to provide you with MLS feedback and suitable property listings.  Please remember, that only a Realtor can access the MLS listings and although many sites on the internet are valuable, they cannot access the MLS nor provide you the research and data information that a Realtor can.

Should you need any assitance or have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!

You can, but not on Zillow.  Zillow is not a licensed real estate company with access to local MLS data, and is not a substitute for a local agent with access to local data.

You should hire a good local Realtor who will have access to real-time data on available properties.

If they are expired and not relisted its generally because the sellers are not interested in relisting right now. What I would suggest is work with a realtor to identify the ones you are interested in, that are no longer on the market and the realtor can call the sellers up to see if they are going to put the home on the market or if they have rented it which many do when they can't sell. Many sellers pulled their homes from the Multiple Listing Service for the holidays and intend to put it back on the spring market. Talk to your realtor. Best of luck in your search.
Love the Minister's treehouse there!

Absolutely, any local realtor would be able to pull up information on any property you may be interested in as long as it's in the MLS.... Active, Withdrawn, Expired, etc.  Hope this helps.
