Probably the best way and fastest way to get that information is to look for a Realtor that is attentive to details.. yes details.. If they pay attention to details they would have seen that the question was asked: Mon Mar 30, 2009.

Hi Primitanya,

The best way is to Email me with the property tht you want to know about and I will give you a status update.
If it is in East Brunswick and the surrounding areas, I can get you that information in a flash.

Best way to check on the status of a listing is to call the listing agent and have a frank discussion.

The issue that clouds this is that most listed properties that go to contract remain "active" listings until their contingencies are met...inspection, financing, legal review, insurance, HOA doc. review etc.

Thus, these properties can remain on the MLS as active, active with contract, pending, etc. after they go to contract. This information is usually between the customer and their agent and doesn't go beyond the above mentioned classifications.

With distressed sales it becomes even more dicey because banks will sit on offers for weeks/months, keeping people in the dark.

Unfortunately the best source for accurate information is likely via the agent(s) associated with each transaction.

Hope this information is helpful.

Your Realtor can help you with this information, simply give them a call. If you do not have a Realtor yet, click on the "Find a Pro" link at the top, type in your target city and interview the Realtor's on the first page.

Best of Luck.

In my opinion this should be public information. I don't understand why we have to contact a realtor for houses under contract.

Once the status changes from Active to Under Contract, the listing no longer shows up on the public sites. The exception is if the status is US, ie, Under Contract Continue to show which is used in the Garden State MLS (and likely others....). In this case, the listing continues to show as Active on the public sites.

The best way to get clarification on the status of any listing is to contact an agent. We have access to the MLS and can see all listings, regardless of status.

Best,

When a property goes under contract, the realtor must notify the MLS who will publish it as under contract. Any realtor can can look that up for you!

Hi Primatanya,
The best way to have all information and assistance that you need in your house hunting process is to contact a local realtor who will take you through the whole process. A local realtor will not only help you with questions about any property, but also, he/she will help you find a house that fits your criteria.
A realtor is a specialist of his/her neighborhood. He/She knows all about the neighborhood, including school information, and market trend.
Contact your local realtor association, or ask a friend and/or family member for a referral. Also you can interview some of the professional realtors who are trying to help you by answering your ticket on Trulia.
Don't try this alone. Help a realtor Help you throough.

Good luck.

Prima,

I am not aware of any that show "under contract". Since Realtor.com is powered by the MLS, what you will find is that once a property is placed under contract, it will dissapear from that website within the next 72 hours (usually sooner).

Chances are you will need an agent to look it up in the local MLS for you. Good luck with your search.

Per the others - this isn't available on any normal public web site. It is only view-able through specialized Realtor-only systems like Trend. So ... talk to your agent and they can look it up.

Your best way to get this info is thru your agent. Some mls systems will have a classification of pending or "active with contract" . Some times further info is available (ie a strong offer or out of review) again your agent will likely have more success getting this info.

I am not aware of any site that will be able to tell you about all the homes that are under contract. Individual Realtor websites may for the listings that agent has. Your best bet is to contact a local agent.

If you have a specific address, you can post it here and an agent affiliated with the MLS board will probably answer for you. Otherwise, as stated, work with your own buyers agent and he/she will be able to update you on all the properties that might interest you that go under contract.

Primatanya,

There's no link or address of a property to give reference to. Generally speaking Realtors have access to the local MLS. This is the most up-to-date resource for checking availabilty of homes. If you are working with a buyer's agent then he/she can prove to be an invaluable resource to you.
