Listing agent says home is closing, MLS says "Active" and status has never changed.A few weeks ago we found a home we were interested in. The listing states "possible short sale" in the private remarks. The listing agent told ours that we couldn't see the house because it already has a contract on it. Since the status has never changed from "active", our agent contacted them again last week to see if maybe something fell through. They said it was closing Monday of this week. The house STILL says it's active. It has not once changed status in the 100 or so days it has been on the market. The other short sales with contracts that we've seen are listed as "active - contingent" and the contingency usually states "lender approval." This one doesn't even say that.I'm really confused by this. Shouldn't the status be changed to at least contingent? Maybe something else is going on here that I don't understand, or maybe she just doesn't mind wasting everybody's time. We are first time home buyers and this entire process has been pretty frustrating so far. Over half of the homes we've had our agent call about already have contracts, even though they're still listed as active. At least with those, they are changed in the system a couple of days later. I don't know if this matters or not, but I am getting this information straight from the MLS, not Zillow or similar sites. Any thoughts on this?
