Under contract means the sellers have accepted an offer and the buyer is waiting on financing.

You could submit a backup offer in case buyer 1 does not complete the sale for any reason, you would be next in line. You will need to find a lender and get a pre approval letter before doing this. You can find a reputable lender and get a pre approval quickly,

I like The Lenders Network they're usually able to find you a lender that'll give you a approval letter quickly .

Good luck!

In Maine, it should be shown as under contract in the MLS within 5 days. Perhaps they had verbal agreement (which is not binding) but waiting on final paperwork.
