Here in Florida, it common wording is "UNDER CONTRACT or PENDING SALE". I know in California, for instance the status is commonly know as "IN ESCROW".
The better ways to find out the details- if one really needs to know... Is to contact the agents familiar with the transaction and get the scoop.

It will show you all the homes on the market, not just Boca Executives listings so you won't miss a thing. If the home has a contract it will show CTG. This means there are still some contingencies like the inspection or loan commitment time has not yet passed. While I would not suggest to get excited about a home under contract, you can save these listings on this website and request notifications if the deal fall through. It's extremely user friendly but dues require you to sign up and provide your email and a phone number. Once the home is fully ready to close, the broker will change it to pending. This website does not show you pending homes. Hope this helps.
Congratulations on finding a new home. In South Florida, when it's under contract it is either:
You Realtor can advise you on which property you have questions about and will be able to tell you which property is in escrow. Or, You can search on my site, and it only shows active available listings here in Boca Raton.
Good Luck, Sherbear
When the property goes off the market and the broker is looking for a back up contract" just to be sure" they will tell you that the property is under contract pending approval and it is in escrow .
The question to ask is the property in escrow looking for third party approval? If not than you know it is a cash sale and your chances are slim to none in buying it. On the other hand being in escrow or just under contract does not mean a lot these days a contract could fall apart for many reasons and a back up offer particularly with cash could be great contender. Anyone can have a home in escrow but it does not mean that it is sold only when the fat lady sings and the closing takes place.
