Properties in Edmonton showing "Pending"

What does pending mean?

There recently was changes to Realtor.ca when a seller accept an offer. A pending property means that the seller has accepted a conditional offer. This does not mean it is sold. It is subject to conditions, usually finacning and inspection.


Can I still see a pending property?

Yes and no. This depends on the seller. The Seller makes the desicion whether or not they still want thier property shown. Personally, if I was selling my house, I would encourage showings during the pernding time frame due to the fact, that a large number of pending properties fall apart due to varies reasons.

Can I still to write an offer on the pending property? 

Yes. You can still write offers on pending properties. If the seller accepts your offer in the province of Alberta is goes into second place and awaits the time frame pending status of the first offer. Your accepted offer to purchase is known as a "back-up" offer.


If you would like to write a back up or have other questions reguarding pending offers, contact us anytime!
