An additional point about DOM.

DOM means "Days on Market"--how many days that house has been listed. It can also refer to average days on market--for instance, perhaps that average days on market for homes in Fairfax is 56 days. For accurate statistics, see http://nvar.com/monthly-sales-market-data-reports/august-2011

DOM for individual properties can be misleading. There's also DOMP--days on market for the property. A property might be put on the market, not sell in 180 days, be taken off the market, then put back on. A quick look might suggest that the property's only been on the market for 10 days. But DOMP would show not just the current 10, but also that previous 180.

A house with a significantly higher DOM than comparables can indicate that the house might be overpriced or doesn't show well.

Hope that helps.

DOM = Days on Market
NSP = Neighborhood Stabilization Program (more info here: http://hudnsphelp.info/)
status pending = under contract

not sure what the agent means by "NSP non proof" - I would contact the listing agent for specifics on that one.

DOM means Days on the Market (how long the home has been for sale). NSP non proof means Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funds that Fannie Mae uses to assist Non Profit groups in purchase of Fannie Mae owned properties.
Status pending means the property has an accepted offer and is pending sale.

Hope this helps!
