Zillow pulls data from third party sites. Therefore sometimes the data is dated and not accurate. Your best source of info/listings is going to be from your local Realtor. Tell him/her what type of property you are looking for and they can set you up on an auto search that will send you ONLY properties that match your criteria as well as ONLY properties that are available for sale. Please check my Zillow profile for more info.

It may be in your best interest to contact a local Realtor who can create a MLS search for you.  You will receive immediate alerts which notify you about a property' listing.   With this information, you can move quickly on a property if needed.  If you are out of state, a Realtor can assist with long distance transactions.

There is such a shortage of homes in Las Vegas that there are usually multiple offers right away and the properties sell very fast. They go into Contingent (Under Contract Pending Financing Requirements and or inspections) status so they still show on the site as still for sale. Many of the large investors will pay above list price and waive appraisal conditions also. You will need a very experienced agent in the current Las Vegas Market.  I hope this answer will help.
Thank You

Hello,

I am not sure what your exact question is, but let me try and hit a few areas that may address the problem you are having with home status issues.  First, In Las Vegas, if a home is placed in "C"  (AKA "Contingent") status, it will often still show up as available on aggregator websites like Zillow. Once the property is placed in "P" (AKA "Pending") status, it no longer shows as available.  There are a number of reasons why an agent might put a home in Contingent status including contingencies for inspection, or loan approval, but most often for Short Sale approval.  Secondly, the market is moving so fast here that a home can come on the market at 9AM and be in Escrow by 10AM.  Of course that is extreme, but it is not unusual to see 2 or 3 offers literally within minutes of a home hitting the market.  Which means that when you got the information it WAS available, but by the time you inquired about it, it was gone.

Looking for a home on some sites is sort of like trying to have a conversation with someone across a canyon.  What you are getting is an echo of what the person is saying, which is sort of what you get with some of these aggregator sites.  The info is not updated real time so it is only an echo of what happened or a snapshot of the earlier in the day.

If you want the most accurate and up to date information, you need to plug into the source... a Realtor.  For instance,  I set up a searchbot for my clients for properties that exactly fit their criteria.  This searchbot reaches out and queries the MLS every 15 minutes and sends an email to you when a home is found that fits those search parameters.  This means that you receive an email within 15 minutes of a home hitting the market.  It doesn't get any better than that.... unless you get the info before the home is listed.  This "Early warning system" is what it takes to be able to get a bit of an edge on the competition, as Demand is still way outstripping Supply and shows little sign of letting up.

Hope this helps.  Best of luck, and thanks for reading.

Zillow is not a member of your local MLS.
To get a current listing status use a local real estate website that is a member.
