Tired of searching the Phoenix real estate listings and finding homes you like only to discover they’re already under contract?
No longer do you have to scroll through a couple of dozen “additional details” to see if the seller already has accepted an offer with contingencies; that information has been moved to the top of the screen:
Hopefully, this change will help with the confusion that often accompanies an existing contingent offer to sell; an accepted contingency offer still is an accepted offer. One of the main contingencies is the status AWC-I, which simply means the seller has accepted an offer and asked their agent to continue soliciting backups. It doesn’t mean it’s a free for all or that the accepted offer isn’t any less valid.
When I discussed this with Diverse, there main issue was integrity in the data. Active needs to mean active (as much as is possible with the local MLS rules on short sales) and consumers need to be able to trust what they see.
If the change means a few less people call, when all they were learning was the home was not really available leading to their inevitable aggravation, I’m good with it.[tags]Phoenix real estate[/tags]
