Expired listings surge across Massachusetts as 2009 ends

Insert:  EXP & CAN Listings Last 10 Weeks of 2009

Fireworks weren’t the only thing exploding across Massachusett last night:  more than 2,200 MLS listings expired causing the total of “failed” (expired & canceled) MLS listings to surge to nearly 9,000 since November 29, 2009.  Over 16,000 MLS listings failed since October 18, or 15 percent more than the 13,800 MLS listings sold during the same period.

As we have written in the past, expired and canceled listings represent a “commission-free” holiday for both home buyers and sellers.  But if you’re a home seller, the end of a listing contract can also present complex decisions about what to do next.  That’s why we invite you to join one of the virtual discussion groups in our experimental social networking site, or participate in one of our upcoming “FSBO’s on Steroids” seminars / webinars.

If you’re looking for another listing agent, rather than attempting a “for sale by owner,” The Real Estate Cafe can analyze recent MLS data to help you identify the best qualified listing to market your home.  Call 617-661-4046 for more information about our Listing Agent Report Card.
