When Real Estate agents take a listing it is usually for a 6 or 12 month period.  Of course, this can be any length of time that the owner wants as we have seen it as short as one month when the owner really wants to get it sold right away.  After this set amount of time when the property does not sell it goes off the market and is considered an "expired listing."  Be prepared when this happens as dozens of real estate agents who's sole job is to call on expired listings will start calling you non-stop the morning after the home expires.

Everyone from real estate agents to home buyers are talking about the low inventory of housing in Southern California and how frustrating it is to find a suitable property at a reasonable price in today's real estate market.  A lot of times these hidden gems may be out there but not visible on the open real estate market and hidden from being seen anywhere on the Internet.  Sometimes the best deals are those that are on "hold" status for one reason or another.

A real estate agent will put a home "on hold" for a wide range of reasons.  Sometimes seller's will have some kind of an emergency come up and still want to sell the home but are unable to cooperate with showings during a short period of times.  In other cases we see a lot of short sale and bank

If you are in the market to buy a home but looking to leverage your cash you may want to consider seller's who are open to doing a seller carry back.   What exactly is a seller carry back?  Instead of going through a traditional mortgage to buy a home the seller of the bank becomes the bank, in essence, and provides the buyer with an interest rate and terms for the amount that is to be borrowed.  Typically, a certain amount of down payment will be required in order for the seller carry back to work, in most cases this can be anywhere from 10 to 20% of the purchase price.
