It a seller's market when deals frequently make it to closing, agents are reluctant to show houses with contracts; HOWEVER, in the current market, with many acceptable offers falling through, in good agent will show a house with a contract if she has an serious buyer just in case the deal doesn't work out; that way the buyer doesn't have to come back out and can make a quick decision.

This depends largely on the individual situation. If the sellers are willing to allow it to be shown under contract, we feel, most agents would be receptive to showing a potential buyer property that is under contract. Further, if it's the right place, submitting a "back up" offer would not be out of the question either.

It depends on the agent, the Buyer and the house. If the house is exactly what the client is looking for and they haven't found anything up to that point, the agent may feel it is still worth the time to show the house (with the Seller's approval). The Buyer's agent can contact the Seller's agent and let the agent know the Buyer is waiting in the wings - just in case the deal falls through. IF the original deal falls through, the Buyer can proceed with an offer.
