What does it mean when it's preforeclosure and a contract on a house?

It means that the seller hasn't paid their mortgage in a few months and their bank is about to take the house back. If they sell before the bank takes it then you will get a clear title and you don't have to worry about paying their delinquent debt.

Preforeclosure.......seller is trying to sell before the house is actually sold at auction. They've either been given notice or posted for forclosure at that point.

Contract on a house.....that just means it is now under contract.

Please write me off forum (I answered the question about the house you are referring to earlier) at It's so much easier than trying to explain everything like this! I promise you, no pressure.
