There is a Long Island real estate listing that is listed as active; but I'm told it's ben sold. Several days later, when I check the site; it says the information has been updated; and it's for sale. How can I check whether the agent is telling me the truth, and whether it's for sale or not.?
Hello and thank you for using JA! My goal is to provide you with excellent service and help with your legal problem.
It is possible that the agent has not updated the status of the listing to mark it "Pending" yet. Listings go from "Active" to "Pending" to "Sold" in that order. So if you don't think your realtor is being truthful with you, you can call the local MLS service directly and ask them what the status is. You can also just contact any other realtor and ask them to check to see what the status is.
As an aside, I have been a Realtor for over 13 years....
