Under contract simply means that all parties are in agreement with respect to the sale/purchase and the contract was executed--signed by all parties; deposit money was exchanged--the deal has not yet closed at this point and no transfer of ownwership has yet occurred.

"Under Contract" generally means that the buyer and seller have agreed to the terms of an offer and have both signed it thereby making it a binding contract. If you are working with a licensed Realtor it is always best to consult with them directly and for legal advice consult a licensed attorney.
Best of luck to you

Kent and Anna have it covered, but I wanted to add that the term "Pending" is used interchangeably with "under contract"
