It is really best to ask your real estate agent this information and any other pertinent info. Gve me a call and I would be happy to look up that info for you. I have lived in St. Peters for 25 years and am pretty familiar with the area. My number is 636-448-6425 and I work with Coldwell Banker Gundaker, the largest real estate company in the St. Louis Metro Area.

Missouri doesn't require a buyer client relationship to give out days on market

I am curious: which states is it OK to give out this information without a buyer/client relationship?

Speak with your real estate professional. They will have this information for you.

OK, now the days on market (DOM) or continuous days on market (CDOM) number in or any of the on line home search programs or on the reports that you will pick up at a Sunday open house, will tell you the days on market that the home is currently listed at, HOWEVER, if the home has been taken off the market for 60 days or longer, the days on market will revert to zero and the count will start over. A realtor will have to go back through their system to see if the home has been listed previously and how many days it was on the market before. If a home changes agents or is withdrawn temporarily, the days on market may take a break, but will continue on, when it comes back on the market if it does not go off the market for at least 60 days in the St Louis market place.

If it was listed by owner and not in a realtor's data base system (MLS), then only the owner will know the true number.

And yes, some agents are OK with providing you with information now when you are "just looking" recognizing that you are researching the market now and may not be ready to do anything for some time. Our hope is that when you are ready to do something, you will remember those of us who are helpful and will seek us out to help you then. I have people in my system who have been researching the market for 2-3 years while they are waiting for someone to graduate, get married, for a promotion to happen, etc. At the point that their particular "life event" happens, they will have researched the market, know what they want and where to find it, have a fairly good idea of the current price point for what they want (and in many cases we will have already visited the area and looked at the floorplans and neighborhoods to validate what they have seen on line so that they will know the great deal when it pops up and when they are ready to make their move). I've had others who I've helped who have never come back to me for anything. So please don't think that if you ask a realtor for assistance you are making a long term commitment to that realtor or locking yourself in with that realtor forever. You can find out a lot about a Realtor by how they respond to helping you wtih getting answers to minor questions like the number of days on market for a listing that's not their own when they aren't sure if they will be keeping your business or not after they answer the question.

The information is easely access by any real estate agent. She/he should be able to print the complete history report of the property.

A real estate agent can do a history report for you which will tell you how many days it has currently been on the market, price reductions that the sellers have made, and if it was previously on the market.

My office is located in St Peters and I would be happy to email that information to you. You can contact me at or

You can ask your agent. What do you believe this information would tell you?

Barbara -
Your REALTOR can give you that information and can compare other properties in which you are interested at the same time. Hope you're working with a good one.

At the bottom of the MLS listing which unfortunately only agents can access it tells you. I get a lot of calls for that question. Just call an agent and ask if they will tell you. Good question.

It should be listed on the paper given to you by the Realtor - look for the number by "CDOM" or "DOM". If you aren't already working with a Realtor, I do work the St. Peters area and I would be happy to help you with this. You can contact me through my web site.
