Hey Robin,

For the most part, Anna's answer was correct. However, you always need to add the qualifying word, "Usually". Because in this real estate market, a lot of homes go "Under Contract" and show as "Pending" only to fall through before the closing. Then that home will usually be brought back on the market.

If you have a particular home you are interested in, I can look it up for you. Just let me know. My cell is 975-9330!

Pending, generally means the property is under contract and the parties involved are going through the steps that will lead it to the closing table.

"Pending" means there is a contract in place on the property that may have contingencies that need to be worked through. Common contingencies are: financing, inspection, presentation of documents, survey etc.
