NOW UNDER CONTRACT…

The following properties are now under contract, but that doesn’t mean they will stay that way. It is not uncommon for homes to fall out of contract during the option period for any number of reasons including inability to negotiate repairs and, commonly, buyers remorse.

If the status is listed as Pending Continue to Show, this may mean that the sale is contingent on the sale of another house or for some reason the listing agent feels that this deal may need a backup contract, just in case.
