Sometimes in the process of selling of a home, things come up. Can you believe it?

There are good reasons for temporarily taking a property off the market. For example, the owner may decide to take time to improve the property, or a life event could take someone out of town. Whatever the reason, here’s how to take a listing off the market temporarily.

Changing a Listing to Temporarily Off Market

From the menu, click on Add/Change and select Change Listing. This will let you click on the listing you need to temporarily take off the market.

In the bottom left corner, select Take Off Market (Temporary), type in the Temp Off Market Date and click Save.

Now your listing will immediately be placed in Temporarily Off Market Status.

There is no maximum time limit for how long a listing can remain in Temporarily Off Market status. However, you will want to review the time frame with your Seller and Broker. Keep in mind, if the listing’s expiration date passes, the listing will automatically change to Expired status.
