I have a listing that went pending, had a sale fail and I want it active again, do I have to start all over?

Withdraw it and then refresh it on a RMLS change order form. This gets you a new ml number so it shows up as a new listing. Most agents are doing this as a regular part of their listing so it shows up as a new listing every 60 days and that is what buyers look for new listings.

Where's your listing at?? I'm always on the lookout for good properties to tour . . .

Switch RMLS Status back to Active.

You might want to get permission to withdraw the litsting form your seller and than re-input it. This creates a new status and it bursts all the IDX systems and automated searches as a new listing.

This can be a big help in this market. Sorry about your sale fail but I can not say that is not a large percentage of files right now.

You sold it once and you will sell it again I am sure!

Just change the status to "ACT" again. It will pop-up on the MLS as Active or even as BOM (back on Market) for a day or two. Also make sure that your contract date has not already expired before doing so.

Hope that helps.

Best of Luck,
