The MLS is the only database of reliable, timely, accurate, relevant, comprehensive data. AND it IS the database for which REALTORS(R) have reponsibility. Data apppearing anyplace that is not a real estate professional website such as Trulia, can be fabricated. altered, spindled and mutilated as the website onwer(s) choose.
If your time has value, you should rely on the MLS for factual data and the other wesites for entertainment. and "Why?' should cost extra.
It may be because it is AWC- Active with Contract, meaning there is a ratified contract between the Seller and Buyer, but the seller is accepting back up offers until the contingencies are removed. It is not listed as a "Short Sale" so the contingencies are probably inspections and financing.
I feel an informed client makes the best decisions regarding their real estate needs. Let me know if I can be of assistance.
