What do the statuses mean?
Explanation of Status
Active (A): The active status is for properties that are offered for sale and have no accepted contract on them.
Active Under Contract (AC): The Active Under Contract status is for properties that have an accepted contract and the seller has instructed their agent to keep marketing and showing the property in an effort to obtain a backup offer.
- With Kick-out. For properties that have an accepted contract with a contingency that may allow the seller to terminate the current contract in favor of a backup contract.
- Without Kick-out. For properties that have an accepted contract and the seller has instructed the listing broker to keep marketing the property in effort to secure a backup contract, regardless of their ability to terminate the current contract.
Canceled (C): The canceled status is for properties that have been withdrawn from the MLS and the listing agreement has been terminated. Please note that these listings will not expire.
Expired (X): The expired status is for properties for which the listing period has expired.
Pending (P): The pending status is for properties that have an accepted contract and the seller has instructed their agent to cease marketing and/or showing the property. This property may still have normal contractual conditions (i.e. inspections, financing, etc.).
Closed (S): The sold status is for all properties entered in the MLS that have been sold and closed.
Hold (H): Hold is for properties that have been temporarily removed from the active status and are still listed with intention of returning to active status in a short period of time. See Article 16 of the NAR Code of Ethics regarding solicitation of these listings.
Withdrawn (W): The withdrawn status is for properties withdrawn from the system prior to expiration, but still subject to some listing broker rights. Listings will remain in this status until they expire and will move to the expired status. See Article 16 of the NAR Code of Ethics regarding solicitation of these listings.
