Hi Jazz,

When a property goes pending it means that the seller has accepted and offer but there are terms in the contract that may need to be still resolved for a closing to occur. Some examples of this is...
Inspections, loan commitment, appraisal, insurance...

You could approach the seller or Realtor and ask if you can write up a back up offer, there always is a possibility that the contract could fall through and your back up offer would be next in line.

Good Luck

To post your home for sale by owner on Trulia, click the link below and select Submit listings for sale.

You will be redirected to our partner site, Zillow. Once you activate your listing on Zillow, it will appear on Trulia within 24 hours.

When you do list your property, please note you will have the ability to create a new listing and submit the updated information of your property. Once the listing is sent to Trulia, the new information will override the public record information at the top of the page and potential buyers will be able to see the updated information displayed.

For future reference, you can feel free to contact us about this type of inquiry through our contact form here:

Thank you for using Trulia!

One is cement construction and the other is stick built. Think back to the story of the 3 little pigs. You don't want straw, you don't want twigs, you want bricks! Why? Because nothing eats cement and it is strong, hard and durable. This way when a hurricane comes, you do not have to worry about the huffing and puffing and blowing your house down. ... more

Foreclosures posted here are not for sale, at least in most cases. RealtyTrac sells subscriptions to their data, not homes. Most homes in Foreclosure won't appear for sale anytime soon. Some will get worked out, others may get listed as a short sale and some will eventually complete the foreclosure process and either be sold at auction or be listed by the bank and placed for sale. ... more

Realtors have to abide by laws and must refrain from answering questions like this. The internet has many resources to search for statistics. You may also want to visit the local police department as well as speaking to neighbors in the areas you are interested in. ... more

FYI -- Trulia is not a real estate company. It is a marketing site that pulls listings from many different sources. If it's a listing for sale, then you should address your concerns with the LISTING AGENT.

Also, most Contracts to Buy give the buyer the opportunity to do their own due diligence before closing on a property. If you discover facts about the property during this process that you don't like, then you terminate the contract. Period. No need to get "lawsuit happy". If you discover it's not really on a private beach, then do not move forward with the contract!

Diane Christner answered:
A good real estate agent is very familiar with the neighborhoods where he or she shows properties. But because of the Fair Housing Act, the agent can't legally share all of that information with you. Many customers ask about "safe" neighborhoods but the definition of safe is subjective, your definition of safe may not be the same as another person's, and answering questions about "safe" neighborhoods may actually put us agents in violation of the Fair Housing laws as it may pinpoint a certain class of people. That's why we real estate agents should not be commenting on safe neighborhood questions other than to point you towards local police/sheriff offices for statistics or demographic web sites that track crime statistics such as ... more
