The information on this page explains what the Spokane MLS Status of each listing means on the Spokane MLS Property Search just under the photo slide show and above Property Description. We hope this page will help our users have a better understanding of each status when they see it on the listing pages. It is important to understand that the Status of each Spokane MLS Listing can change hour by hour, day by day depending if the seller has accepted an offer on their listing from a buyer. When a seller and buyer have entered into an agreement by both parties the purchase and sale agreement is considered Mutually Accepted and at point will change from Active Status to a Contingent Status.
Normally when a Contingent Status is removed or changed the Spokane MLS will change the Current Listing Status to: Pending which are also posted on our website for our users convenience and accuracy of our Spokane MLS Listings. You can search the Spokane MLS SOLD Homes by going to our MLS SOLD Homes page.
You can also see the Sold Status on our Spokane MLS Market Report Updates page which shows the Spokane Multiple Listing Service (MLS) Active, Under Contract, and Sold Properties with: Address, Sold Price, Sold Date and DOM (days on the market) on 3 charts. MLS Market Report Updates.
1. MLS Listing Status: Active >> This means that the property is Active and is still For Sale if the listing is still on our website. The Listing Status information comes directly from the Spokane Multiple Listing (MLS) when the new Spokane MLS Listings are downloaded daily from their database to our SpokaneHomesForSale.com website.
2. MLS Listing Status: BOM >> This means that a property was recently in a Pending Sale SOLD status in the Spokane Multiple Listing (MLS) but for some reason the sale did not finalize or close and came back on the market. Sometimes this is caused by buyers financing not going through or the home inspection was not agreed to between the seller and buyer etc.
3. MLS Listing Status: Chg Price >> This is to let potential buyer's know there has been a price change recently. The price change is normally when it has been lowered but sometimes you will see that the price has been increased. You will notice on our website that we have a Red Arrow for lowered prices with how many days ago it was lowered. We have a Green Arrow to show if a price has been increased with how may days ago it was increased. Increased prices will normally come from new construction homes, or if a seller has made some new major improvements to the home. Let us know if you have other questions about price.
4. MLS Listing Status: Ctg-Inspection >> This means that the property has recently become a Contingent Sale but the buyer is in the process of doing their home inspection.
