Once a home goes under contract, the seller may elect to not allow any more showings. Whether or not this is the case in this situation is not something I can speak to because I don't know the seller nor the details of the listing agreement between the seller and the listing broker.
The title search is part of the closing process and contingencies of the contract, but not reason enough for the property to continue to be shown.
Perhaps you (or your Buyer's Agent if you have one) should contact the listing broker and explain that you're very interested in the property and would like to see it and that you're guessing the seller wouldn't mind more interest and a potential back-up offer in their hands.
Most likely, since an offer has been accepted and they are under contract, the seller has asked the Listing Agent not to show the house anymore. Most sellers don't want to keep showing the house when they are under contract because they feel there is really no point. However, when I have a listing, I put it in Backup status until the buyer has removed all contingencies. My sellers still show if the house is in Backup Status and not Pending Status. This way, the seller can accept Backup offers in case the contract in escrow does fall through. Not all Realtors do this though. If you really, really want to make an offer as a Backup, have your Realtor contact the Listing Agent and see if they will take a Backup Offer 'subject to interior inspection'. In this instance, you would be making an offer without seeing the house. If the original contract falls out of escrow, then you could be 'next in line' and then you can see the house and see if you want to move forward with your offer (since it is 'subject to interior inspection). Just a thought...depends how badly you want to make an offer. Other than this, you should look at your other available homes for sale that are not in contract. Again, it is the seller, not the Realtor who decides whether to show the house or not as it is their home.
If the deal falls through, your agent would be the first to know so keep in touch with them.
