The truth be known - this is more than likely an agency's inability to utilize Trulia to its fullest potential. If they do not claim a listing that is fed from another source, such as their local MLS - you, as the interested party see Unknown as the status. This also happens if they allow the list to expire on Trulia (not from the market).
It has nothing to do with it being Under Contract, Sold, Active or anything of the sort as some agents will lead you to believe. Hope this helps clear any confusion or misleading information you are receiving.
Mom, you must tell us more. Where do you see status unknown, on what site, what listing?
I'm having an open house Thursday 11-1 PM. and on Sunday 12-4 PM. Please come by and say Hi. 40 Westland Rd, Cedar Grove. Elmwood turns into Overlook, bear left to Westland then tpo corner of Forest, Ced Grove. Maybe we can figure it out.

If by "status unknown" you are referring to a description I would venture to guess that (1) it is a bank owned property wherein the condition in unknown (2) an estate whreein the sellers did nto live in the property an cannot be 100% sure of it's condition or (3) it is an investor owner property where they typically decline the fulfillment of a seller's disclsoure (not required) simply because they have not lived in the property.
Love and Peace,

Hi Willsmom, if you saw this on a Trulia listing, then send it along and we'll explain what you are seeing. It is likely the Under Contract status - the status designations are A(Active), A*(Attorney review-ie, accepted contract being reviewed by attorneys), UC(Under Contract), X(Expired), W(Withdrawn). T(Temporarily Off the Market), and the very happy state of S(Sold!).
There is no status that I have ever seen that is unknown. There is a contract that sellers sign and its a legal. Therefore, unknown is not a term we use. It's either A-active; UC-under contract: or S-Sold. Where did you see unknown?
