I was just wondering if there is a way for homeowners to see a listing agent's unsold/expired listings?

We can pull them up on the MLS, but I don't think there is any other way to get an easy list of them.

Other members of the MLS can, but I don't know how homeowners would.

Public, no. Agents on MLS, yes.

The beneficial utility of the data is subject to detailed analysis.

In my local MLS, we have three categories one would need to access:

-Expired.

-Cancelled.

-Withdrawn.

The only access to those categories would be via a member/subscriber/participant of MLS with full access.
Years ago some agents would "Withdraw" listings a day before expiration, so they could brag, "I have never had an expired listing."


Making the information helpful and relevant can be quite challenging. Context is important.
-Agent changes firms, so cancels all current Active listings, to re-enter under the new firm. These cancellations will show as Unsold. One needs to recognize that situation.
-Client decides not to take that transfer. Listing is cancelled. Is that a failure?
-Listing expires while under contract.
-Owner is nuts, and agent doesn't realize until the listing is entered. Unsold.
-Unrealized title issues.
-Years ago, I had a client swipe my photos of his listing from MLS, post on Craigslist, and rent the house out from under me. Twice. LOL

Oh...that still happens.

I reported it when it showed up as "no showings" months after the seller breached on my buyers and decided not to sell a day before closing.

Thank you for this. I really appreciate all of the information that you share and I really wish you were a realtor in my area.

I was thinking more information (including expired listings) would be useful in choosing a listing agent. For example, if his/her listings expire in one neighborhood, maybe there's an issue with his/her network. Or if he/she has a bunch of expired single family homes, but really sells alot of townhouses, that would be useful.

Now I can see it is not so simple.
