How To Search WVMLS For Active / Under Contract / Sold Houses in the Willamette Valley Area

The WVMLS system is the Willamette Valley Multiple Listing Service, which provides Realtors® and the general public access to a database of homes for sale in the local area, including Corvallis, Albany, Philomath, Lebanon, Sweet Home & surrounding areas. It is an extremely useful service for anyone looking to buy a home or property, as it can help you pre-narrow down the search criteria and give your Realtor® an idea for what exactly you are looking for.

What Does ‘Active Under Contract’ Status Mean?

Houses marked ‘active under contract’ are homes for sale that have an accepted offer already registered, however it may have contingencies or the agent may feel that it is not 100% solid.  This differs from ‘pending’ status, which usually means the deal has progressed far enough that it is very likely to make it to closing, and thus, remain unavailable to purchasers.

We recommend limiting your search criteria to ‘active’ properties, as ‘active under contract’ properties have a pretty good chance of progressing to ‘pending’ status or ‘closed’, and thus you could be wasting your time searching through these properties. However, when it is a seller’s market (inventory is low, and prices continuing to rise), buyers may need to use every tool possible to find their dream home, and you can let your agent know if you have found an ‘active under contract’ property that interests you.
