Frequently Asked Questions: Pending Status

To help you understand the rules governing the Pending Listing Status, we assembled a list of Frequently Asked Questions and their answers.

When should a listing be changed to Pending status?

A listing should be changed to Pending status within three business days of a mutually executed contract (MEC) on the property. Days in MLS (DIM) pauses while a listing is in Pending status. Showings may continue if the seller is accepting back-up offers. Make sure to indicate this in your REcolorado Matrix listing information.

Do I need to have earnest money submitted to move my listing’s status to Pending?

No, a listing should be changed to Pending within three business days of a mutually executed contract (MEC), meaning both parties have signed. Earnest money has no bearing on when a listing should be moved to Pending status. If there is a mutually executed contract, the status must be changed within three business days regardless of whether or not earnest money has been received.

Is there a way to move my Residential Lease to the Pending status?

No, there is no Pending status option for Residential Leases, but you can pull your marketing once an application and/or deposit has been submitted. After you have a contract signed for your Residential Lease, you can move it to Closed/Leased in REcolorado Matrix.
