Off the market means just that.. When a property is off the market the seller no longer is selling the property for whatever reason.. Sometimes it is because of title issues, or a possible squatter has taken over the property, it could be a short sale and now the property was foreclosed and will re-list as a foreclosure, also it could be as simple as the seller may not want to sell anymore. Off the market properties can be for many reasons.

When a property is off the market you will have to wait till the seller is ready to place the property back on the market.

Sometimes it takes the property off the market because it has an end date for receiving bids. On the other hand depends on whether the Bank requires to make any arrangement that property can temporarily put out of business.

Typically off the market indicates the seller no longer has the property available for sale at the present time. A bank may take a home off the market for a variety of reasons such as problem with providing clear title, legal claim from the previous owner, or a physical condition of the property that needs to corrected. Best suggestion is to call the listing agent to find out when the home will be back on the market.

Depending where it says it and how it could mean 2 things. In either case a call to the agent would be needed to know if it is under contract and expected to close or it means they gave up selling it for any of a number of reasons. Often there was something found they need to deal with before relisting it.
