It's data sources might not be sending the correct updated information on the status of a home or the listing agent is not controlling the various advertising portals they use. It does make it frustrating for buyers when there is a shortage of homes in knowing which websites to use for research. Homes are either posted in the MLS or are For Sale By Owner. Realtor.com or Redfin.com are popular sites to seach MLS listings while For Sale By Owner sellers may not advertise any more than a sign in the front yard, or possibly on websites like Craigslist.com or ForSaleByOwner.com Mon, 26 Nov 2012 17:41:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Everything-is-sold/461781/ 2012-11-26T17:41:00Z You have a good point, there ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Everything-is-sold/461781/ You have a good point, there are a lot of inactive/pending/already sold listings on Zillow.&nbsp;&nbsp; The update of all listings is the responsibility of the agents providing the listings.&nbsp; Some are very timely, some not so much so.

The site is a great source of information but like I said it would be nice to find something still for sale.&nbsp; I do agree with you on why isn't my realtor sending me a good active list of properties in the area. That I am starting to have problems with.&nbsp; How in the heck is everything sold all of a sudden in this market?&nbsp; I think big money is moving in on rentals since the banks are only paying 1 percent on our money, it's smarter to buy a $300,000 house and earn $1500 rent the first month compared to a years worth of interest at 1 percent ($3000 a year)&nbsp; Thanks for your input.<br/><br/>Take care AL Fri, 28 Sep 2012 14:55:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Everything-is-sold/461781/ 2012-09-28T14:55:00Z
