CTG – contingent. There is a signed and accepted offer. In other words, there is a legally binding agreement between the buyer and the seller. Yes, it`s true, UAG and CTG status in MLS essentially mean the same thing – that there is a signed and accepted offer between the buyer and the seller. If a property is allegedly under contract or conditional or contractual, active or contracted, or has a signed offer, it means the same thing. That is, there is a signed and accepted offer between the buyer and the seller. And that means the property is not currently for sale. This is typical of an accepted offer to have contingencies. Standard quotas include domestic and parasitic controls, mortgages and (for condominiums) and budget audits. Contingencies offer a buyer the opportunity to terminate a transaction. This means that a property below the accepted offer could eventually return to the market (BOM). Under accepted offer does not always lead to SALE (SLD).
However, keep in mind that if a property is under accepted offer, there is a legally binding agreement between buyer and seller. Other potential buyers cannot cancel an accepted offer – this is a legally binding agreement between buyer and seller. Why are some properties with accepted MLS offers labeled UAG and others as CTG? Good question. The decision to list a property with an offer accepted in the MLS as a UAG or CTG is always a judgment call for the seller concerned and it is the seller`s decision to make. The choice of CTG is a way to signal to the market that there are one or more contingencies in the accepted offer that must be met and that the property could be put back on the market. Of course, this can also happen for a property marked in MLS with the UAG designation. It is important to remember that UAG and CTG essentially feel the same way, namely that there is a signed and accepted offer between the buyer and the seller. It`s up to the salesperson to know how they feel the most. In most cases, deciding how to mark the status will usually be on what the broker recommends. There is nothing more disappointing than finding a home that you find charming just to discover that it is under contract. Although someone may have hit you and made an offer, that doesn`t mean you`re out of luck! There are countless reasons why the transaction could fail: the buyer`s financing does not manifest itself, there are problems during due diligence, or the buyer has not been able to sell his home. This is not the case if you had marked the house as an agreement.
When a house is marked under agreement, the days on the market clock listen! So, in the example above, if the house is marked as UAG and put back on the market, the time of the market would read 45 days. Evette is just your average HGTV fan who dreams of having a home worthy of being in one of these shows. If she doesn`t write for HomeLight, she works in her local real estate agency. In their downtime, you`ll find them looking for the next great hiking trail in their area. In principle, an ongoing sale of real estate is much closer to sale than a contract-compliant property. Why is it so important? I have never met a buyer in twenty-four years of business who has not asked “how long the property is on the market”.
