Are sellers getting tired?

Fifty-two listings expired yesterday, the last day of June. I believe that’s a high number, even for June 30th, and although I’m sure we’ll see most of these houses come back on, I wonder whether sellers have decided to take the summer off. A revision of an expiration date on a listing is free, a renewed listing costs $75 so I’d think that, if these sellers intended to keep their houses on the market during the summer, their agent would have renewed yesterday rather than pay an extra fee today.

Or maybe its the agents who have grown tired of showing over-priced listings that won’t sell.

    Many friends of ours are home this summer, eschewing the normal vacation spots, finding it hard to justify the costs, etc. If I had a house for sale, I’d throw caution to the wind and go for the free revision. Hey, you never know when the right buyer might come along. Look how easy it was for Mr. 58 Dawn Harbor.

      I agree, BackCountry – I have a ton of buyers right now, all still looking and most with the desire to be settled in before September. A house not shown is a house not purchased, even if the reverse isn’t necessarily true.
