When searching for homes buyers will find not only Spring Texas homes in an A status returned in their search results but also homes in an OP and PS status. The A or Active status is the easiest status for potential home buyers to understand. Its the other letters of the real estate alphabet that create all the confusion.
OP is an abbreviation for Option Pending. A real listing with an OP status is a home that is under contract with an Option Period. A home is officially under contract when the sellers and the potential buyers of the home have agreed to the terms of the sale and both parties have executed the documents. Buyers will typically negotiate with the sellers for an Option Period to be included in the real estate contract.
The buyers pay the sellers a nominal fee for the Option Period which gives the buyers the unrestricted right to terminate the contract during a defined time frame. The majority of real estate listings will move from a status of OP to P or PS which are other under contract statuses.
If the home you love has an OP status watch for status changes on the home because not all listings continue down to path to being sold. Not often but sometimes the home does go back to an A or Active status.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all. Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result. I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
