Rose Rider is Just a Rose Rider
In addition to following multiple Twin Cities neighborhoods for various clients, I also watch home sales near where I live (natch).
So about 10 days ago, when the “Sold” rider** disappeared from the vacant “For Sale” home down the street, I assumed that the deal hiccupped on inspection, and the home was switched back to “Active” on MLS.
Until I drove past today and saw the “Sold” rider once again.
The explanation? (confirmed by a quick check of the home’s MLS archive history): the wind must have blown the “Sold” rider off, and neither the listing agent nor the moved-out homeowner noticed for awhile.
**A sign rider is a sign that hangs below the main “For Sale” sign.
Common examples include the listing agent’s name, the time of an upcoming open house, and any special features (like lakeshore).
