Under Contract Show - Still in the Due Diligence Period but, Under Contract.

Under Contract No-Show - Either beyond Due Diligence or Seller is Under Contract and wants no more showings.

I use 'Sorry, Too Late' on my sign toppers and in my marketing.

Ours are Active, and the next one is Contract, and the next one is Sold.

When we have an accepted offer, before contract (which could take weeks here to get to contract), we are supposed to put a comment in MLS that there is an accepted offer. Not everyone does so, so it's sometimes tricky to know what's still really active.

The MLS is one thing but agents sometimes use other terminology. Here it's pending or contingent on the MLS but some say a property is under contract.

We have "Active Under Contract" which is the new way of saying "Contingent, Backup Offers Only".  We also have Pending, which is the one I prefer because it stops the days on market clock.

 

Either way, no one will show the home.

Listing is an under contract-show during the due diligence period. Once due diligence ends it becomes an under contract-no show. Next step is closed.

I do nothing on my signs until it's been through due diligence... superstitious about jumping the gun.

You Tell A Buyer On The Phone, In The Office, On Line "That Listing Is Under Contract". And They Ask What's The Heck Does That Mean... Is It For Sale Or Not? "Not Available"...But It Still Appears Online With The MLS Banner "Sale Pending"... What's Up With That?

In my market, it is either pending, pending with contingency, or backup.  Backup is supposed to be used for short sales under contract but many agents misuse this category.

We use all of those descriptors inconversation. On our MLS it is Pending or Pending-Show for Backup. In the case of the buyer needed to sell in order to perfom, it would be Active-Contingent.
