Differences between under contract vs pending

Buying things is normally a pretty straightforward exchange: a seller puts a price on something, a buyer pays the price, and the seller gives the thing to the buyer. Of course, real estate doesn’t work quite so simply. There’s often more than one potential buyer in the mix, prices get negotiated, and even when a buyer and seller agree to terms, the house may not be sold.

That leads us to the issue of under contract vs pending and what those terms mean in real estate.

Sale pending vs. under contract both refer to periods when a buy and seller have agreed to terms but before the house is officially sold. At a glance, when a home is listed as “pending,” that means the home is in the final stages of a sale. If a home is “under contract,” there are still a few details that the seller and the buyer are waiting to finalize (such as appraisal value), before the sale can continue into the pending sale stage.

Listing agent vs selling agent: What’s the difference?

Real estate transactions, in some ways, can make you feel like a big Hollywood star. There are people taking pictures of your house. You may have staging that you need to do. People ask you about how you live and what your area is like. Yes, the best agents know how to give their clients the celebrity treatment.

But when it comes to choosing agents and understanding their different roles and responsibilities, what’s the difference between a listing agent and a selling agent?

Simply put, a listing agent (also called a sellers agent) helps clients put their properties on the market to be bought by a potential buyer. Selling agents (also called buyers agent), help clients who are looking to purchase a home. However, there’s a lot more to what each real estate agent does than just that. 

To clear things up, let’s take a look at listing agent vs. selling agent.
