Active just means that the property is available. Remember, a lot of websites aren't governed by a board, so they can leave properties that are sold or pending up as "active" and you won't know until a real estate agent looks into it more.

My advice, find a good buyers agent that you feel comfortable with. He or she will be able to send you properties that are on the market. Work with a professional, get professional results.

Active is the status you will want if you are looking for properties on the market. Pending means there is an offer on it and should close soon, no more showings. Withdrawn means it is not on the market any longer and Sold means just that..... Sold.

It means it is still available for sale and the seller is accepting offers.

Active is a status which means the property is currently available for sale, as opposed to pending or closed.
