Who listed our home for sale after we purchased it?

Our home listing shows that it was offered for sale a month after we bought it, and taken off the market four months later.  We didn't do this, and it says the source is Visual Tour.  How do we find out who was trying to sell our home with us in it?

Technology is great- when it works, but there are instances where information on-line is not always accurate.  Visual Tour has started taking note of expiration dates and deactivating tours that expire. 
Best of luck in your new home!

Real Estate Agents listings are syndicated to many other websites. What probably happened is, the agent who had the home you purchased listed for sale, the agent probably never notified Visual Tour that the home is no longer for sale. Visual Tour is set up to automatically notify Zillow and many other websites of the homes that are for sale on Visual Tour, this is a service that the agent paid for. Since Visual Tour was probably never notified, Visual Tour's website still thought your home was for sale, until the tax records updated Zillow of the recent sale.
