Pending Status Alternatives

The answer can vary depending on what your seller intends to do about showings:

  • If the seller will continue to show the property and take back up offers you can add a contingency to the MLS database (go to:  change | add/remove contingency).  A property that is active with an u/a show contingency added will continue to show up in search results and be sent to syndication sites such as realtor.com, iberkshires.com and the Point2Agent sites, including Trulia and Zillow.
  • If the seller will not continue to show the property then it must be listed as pending in the MLS database.  Please remember that you act in the best interest of your seller but this does not allow for violation of rules and regulations or policies to accomplish their requests.  All status changes must be reported to the MLS within two (2) business days of obtaining all required signatures.

Please contact Board Office staff if you have any doubts!
