Asked by Nervous, Riverton, UT Tue Aug 11, 2009

anymore! Does this mean the house sold right under our noses last night or do they take it off the listing when someone makes an offer?

You will definitely want to call your agent. There are different reasons for the status to change from active.
The listing could be expired. The Sellers may have decided to withdraw their listing. Your agent can check the history on the MLS and call the Listing agent to find out what is going on.

Give her call now. Good luck.

I can definately understand your nervousness. However, when you say that it doesn't show up on the MLS, what website are you looking at, and also, did your realtor present the offer? If the number for the listing doesn't show up anywhere, the reason can be discovered by your agent using the MLS and checking the current status. ALl listings have a current status that may not be available to the pulic. The Key is your Realtor! You don't say that you are using a Realtor. Did you make the offer yourself? All this needs to be discovered before all your questions can be addressed.
Good luck to you, and if you need help, well . . . . :)

I would call your agent. The public side of the Wasatch Front mls does not show homes that are withdrawn for any reason, or homes that go under contract. The home you made the offer on might have already been under contract or in the final stages of negotiation when you made the offer....or keep your fingers crossed that You are the offer they are accepting and they changed the status on the mls!
Good luck!

In our MLS we do not remove the house from the active until we have a signed and agreed upon contract. You should ask your agent as custom may be different in Utah. By the way, if the "dream house" did go under contract, be sure to ask to have your offer considered as a back up offer. A lot of contracts are falling out for various reasons, including financing, and it would be best to not give up right away. Good luck, hope you get the house of your dreams!
