A reader “tips” us off to a trick for finding a listing’s DOM on the MLS:

“If you want to see the date a home goes on the market. Do a search for open houses, it will give the “DOM” days on market. That does not help if they take it off and then put it back on though. I was looking the other day and there is one on there for over 220 days.”

Obviously not perfect, but a nice little trick. For example, condo #504 in the Marquee (a building we love) is having an open house on this weekend, has been on the market for 56 days, and is touting “1/2 yr of FREE HOA DUES!”.
∙ Listing: 151 Alice B. Toklas Pl #504 – $669,000 [SF MLS]

    If you want to know the Days on Market (DOM), you don’t need any tricks.
    Just go to ZipRealty, they include the DOM in every listing. They also tell when & how much the listing was reduced, if applicable.
