There are 2 types of categories for that now in our MLS

UCB=Under contract accepting backups (seller has accepted an offer, but is continuing to market and accept backups)
Pending=Seller has accepted an offer and the are going through the normal process to proceed to closing

Hope this helps! :)

Again, in this specific case, the property has a contract of $105,000 but is proceeding to a bankruptcy sale where higher and bids may be accepted.

Under Contract or UCB - The buyer and seller have an agreed upon contract but the seller is still taking back up offers on the property. You will usually see this on a Short Sale. The seller has signed the contract but in the case of a short sale the bank must approve the contract as well.

In the case of my listing...my sellers wanted to continue to market the property and take back up offers during the buyer's 10 day inspection period. As it stands this property is back to Active. The buyers did back out 1 day later, they got cold feet. The house is beautiful and in excellant condition.

Under contract means that the seller has accepted a willing, able and qualified buyer's offer. The seller however can continue soliciting offers which will be kept as back up offers.

The Seller has accepted a Purchase Contract/Offer, and it is now "under contract".

When a property is "under contract" the Seller has accepted an offer and both parties have signed a Purchase Contract. After an offer has been accepted and both parties executed the purchase contract, the Buyer has a 10 day inspection period. Generally, listing agents will leave the listing as "under contract" instead of changing the status to "pending" during the inspection period so they can take back-up offers in the event the current Buyer can't secure financing or cancels the contract for other reasons.

When a listing is "under contract" someone has placed an offer on that property and the seller has accepted that offer. The Seller can still accept back up offers in the event that the current buyer cancels their contract.
