It looks like most of the FHA approved condos in Orland Park have expired. Does that mean they no longer are FHA approved?
I recently dealt with a complex that said expired on the Hud.gov site, but the association said it was just approved. It would be wise to have your Realtor call and ask.

If a condo sale is pending and the price listed is 170,900 on trulia is that the price it was sold for.
An agent in the area can tell you about the home. In my area when we report it as pending in the mls we do not let the public see what the sold price is till it settles.
