This is a fairly common question; one that is misconceived. MLS updates policies, rules, and regulations to curb unethical agents who think they can trick the system. Being honest, ethical and professional is the best way to be successful in real estate.
In order for your property to show as zero days on market, the address needs to be off of MLS for 60 days. The cumulative DOM reset policy for new listings has been updated. When a listing has been off the market in one or more of any of the off-market statuses (not just Expired or Canceled), uninterrupted, for at least 60 full days immediately preceding the entry of a new listing for that property, the Days on Market from the old listing will not be added to the new listing.
However, since MLS retains all listing data for all previously listed properties, the total days on market will show under the ‘property history’ feature. With this being said, waiting 60 days to reset the DOM counter makes little sense. Any reasonably intelligent buyer’s agent will do a historical search on MLS on behalf of their buyer client.
If your property is relisted on MLS before the 60-day mark, it will still show up on MLS as ‘new’ for a few days. This is what counts when marketing real estate to consumers.
