Is it normal for a house to be taken off the listings before the closing date?

we have come to an agreement and signed the papers to buy a house, our credit union is sending out an appraiser this week.  I noticed a few days ago that the house is no longer listed.  Is this normal for a house to be taken off the listings before the close date?

In Louisville, house would probably be on MLS but shown as pending.

Depends on where you are in the country, on our MLS, it stays up, goes either  contingent or pending. Contingent means the owner is still willing to show it even though its under contract, pending means its under contract and not available for showing and has passed its due diligence date.

As long as you are under contract I would not be too concerned.

Yes don't panic, if you have an offeron your property it has to go into the pending status and that will trigger a removal from certainn web sites.

The listing agreement probably expired, so the listing agent would then not be able to advertise it any longer. That does not affect your sales contract between the seller and buyer.

MLS listings will show 'active' homes. If your home is under contract, then it is pending and will not show up in listings.

Congratulations on your home!

Zillow is not a member of the NWMLS. It relies on feeds from individual firms or individuals. It really pays to use a couple of websites to search and watch for your favorites. There are a number of reasons why it could have left Zillow; John has identified one of them.
As a buyer, I'd suggest being excited that people using Zillow exclusively no longer can see it.

Some sites don't show homes that are in pending status or require you to do an extra step to display them. So depending on the site, yes it's normal. John Hurlbut, ABR, GRI, CFS John L Scott Real Estate
