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!
