It is better to simply stop showings temporarily with Showing Time or whatever showing service you use because your clients will be called by many agents thinking the listing has been terminated, even if you have only withdrawn it, unfortunately. We have seen an increase in this problem recently!

As a home seller you have the opinion to close the showing schedule. This means the property owner has to contact central showing and ask them to make available date for scheduling unavailable to further notice. What takes place when this happens is agents nor potential clients are able to schedule to view. Don't feel a need to have to give a reason for why you are choosing this action. At times homeowners need a break. Happy selling

Do you still want it Active, just no showings permitted? You can do that by going into your listing, choose “edit” and under the showing information tab you choose “Temporarily No Showings” in The yellow “Showing Instructions” box.

It depends on what you need to accomplish. Do your clients need time to make repairs or updates? If so, then withdrawing it, with plans to relist with new pictures would make sense. You can add that information in the agent notes and this should be discussed with your clients as well. Do your clients need a short period of time (less than a week) for another reason, indicating no showings until in agent comments, along with making the change in Showing Time will work best. Are your clients reconsidering whether to sell? Ask them if they want to withdraw the listing and explain the pros/cons of this. Whatever the situation, follow your sellers wishes and confidentiality, complete the appropriate Listing Agreement amendment with sellers signature, put appropriate notes in the agent comments that help agents know whether to continue to consider the property (that's all we need to know), inform ST so they can assist you better, and keep the MLS listing updated accordingly.

If you withdraw they agents and buyers may wonder what is wrong with the property. Where as, sometimes sellers just need a break. I suggest you temporarily stop showings on showing time side or what ever showing service you are using. You can also put "currently no showings" in the instructions section at the bottom of the page. You could also type in "currently no showings" in the agent remarks section of your listing. But...your comments may or may not be adhered to, as some agents don't read them....or care.

Depending on your reason for not showing I would just block off some time on the showing service so no one can view the house. If you change the status you have people coming up with their own conclusion about what's happening with the house.

I’ve seen agents put that in the “agent remarks”, then update the showing request service to block out a period of dates and times so that another agent cannot even request a showing through the service. I hope this helps.

Yes use withdrawn then you can activate at a later date and it saves the information.

That's correct, there is no HAR MLS listing status for 'Temporarily not showing'. Yes, 'Withdrawn' is the closest thing. The definition of 'Withdrawn' provided by MLS is "Used when a listing is temporarily taken off the market but a valid listing agreement still exists. Showings are not allowed while in Withdrawn status".

However, with the 'Withdrawn' status, the listing agent can leave a note in either the 'Agent Remarks' or the 'Public Remarks' as to why it's temporarily not showing. For example they can write "Home is temporarily withdrawn while seller renovates. Will be back active sometime this summer"

You can put it in withdrawn status for some time. And put in agent comments also not showing temporarily.

How long will the listing be inactive? If a day or two then just offer showing when available again. If longer, I would contact Broker for advise or office manager.

Withdrawn can be used or you can place in agent remarks that showings will not be accepted for a limited time such as a new mother at home. You could continue to do virtual showings

Yes, as long as it is not to keep from terminating. If the pull is due to repairs being made, or an emergency that requires no showings, temporary issues only.

It depends on what you're looking for. If you plan on listing at a latter date use the "Coming Soon" status. If you are removing the listing (perhaps to modify the information on the listing), just make your changes and update the listing on the MLS accordingly, without withdrawing the listing. Only use "Withdrawn" status if, in effect, you plan on removing the listing from the MLS.
