Hi Ronald-- Everyone is correct that any member of the MLS (SANDICOR for San Diego) can search out this information. Another option for you is to go to

Go to the buyers tab---- you will have a choice to contact a realtor or to have a courtesy account. If you do this I think you will be able to drill into MLS information at your own selection.

Then, of course, any of us would be happy to further assist-- This is, however, a way you can initiate the data collection by yourself. Best wishes!

Best thing is to bypass a realtor and work directly with your local wholesaler, they are on top of expired listings. I get these all the time , I approach the homeowner after the expiration. Typically putting th e property on a lease purchase agreement, with terms favorable to the seller.

How can I find out why a pending offer went back on the market? Is there anyway to know if prior inspections were done on the home?

All listings in the MLS can be found by either the address or MLS number. The easiest way to find the status of an expired listing is to do a search by the address, because it may have been re-listed with a new MLS number.
Realtors can search for an expired and find the history of the listing which may indicate why it expired.
Are you thinking of contacting the owner and making an offer directly? In that case be aware that most listing contracts provide compensation to the listing agent from buyers who may try to negotiate outside of the listing term.

The best way is to partner with a Realtor who will can do the research for you, because a lot of the expired listings are short sales that went into foreclosure, or foreclosures that went to auction. You have to know how to look for them and you have to be able to do research on them to know if they are a traditional seller who just gave up trying to sell becuase of overpricing or received no offers for some other reason. I do work expired listings and would welcome a partner to handle the ones I do find. You can contact me through my website

Hi Ronald,
If you are looking for an expired listing its probably easiest if you ask your realtor to pull the info. Its really easy for us to go onto the MLS and locate that kind of info.
Hope that helps, Filly

Hi Ronald,

Usually once a listing is expired, and has not relisted, the seller has most likely decided not to sell the property.

If you need the information for some reason, ask your agent (or an agent you know) to pull the information.

Know that sometimes the listing agent will delete key information from the listing after it expires to protect their former client's privacy.

Best of luck to you,

Hi Ronald,

If you know the address, you can still search it through google, or any of these property sites (Trulia, Redfin, SD Lookup, etc.) first, & see if it shows up. If you don't know the address, but have the MLS #, I can look it up on our MLS directly.

Is there something I can help you with?
