If you're working with a realtor, and are serious about making a move on a property that catches your eye, you should make sure you have discussed the type of offer you are willing to make, have your pre-approval letter or proof of funds handy and ask them to put you on a daily email update that sends you real-time new listings straight from ARMLS so that you are prepared to make an offer quickly.

If you are referring to the MLS status "Temporarily off market" (TOM), there could be numerous reasons. The most likely in our current market conditions is that it has received multiple offers already and the agent has removed it from active listings so that the existing offers can be reviewed. Some properties are getting dozens of offers. TOM allows an agent, with the seller's permission to remove the listing from active so that the seller doesn't have to continue with additional showings while reviewing the offers already submitted.
Other reasons for TOM could be that the seller has guests, or is having work done to the property and simply doesn't want showings during that time.
If the property is under contract, it will be marked either pending or AWC depending on whether there are outstanding conditions or contingencies to be settled.
I hope this helps you.

It can be issues with seller and agent too, however less likely in this market.
Most likely the property is under contract. Currently many properties are under contract within a couple days of being listed. Are you referring to â€œtemp off the market, AWC or pending? It also depends what site you are looking at for the status. If you would like I can get you set up on an MLS portal so that you have the most up to date information. Have a nice day.

Listings could be temporarily put off the market for several reasons: the Seller (if they are still living in the house) does not want to show the property during a certain period of time for various reasons. Even if they are not living in the house, and find out that they may have to complete some extra work on the house, they do not want to have the liability while work is being done on the house - so the Sellers choose to put it off the market.
I hope this helps,
