Status Mapping

The following table explains how all the various status that we receive from MLS are mapped to the Buying Buddy status.

MLS Listing StatusBuying Buddy StatusComments
Coming SoonActiveComing soon listings are treated as Active and are always included in search results with a banner that says "Coming Soon". The search form does not support searching for just 'coming soon' status.
It is possible to create a display of 'coming soon' properties by using the listing_status filter.
For Property Alerts, coming-soon will be shown in the alerts.
Kick OutActiveSeller is still accepting offers and listing is still marketed.
First Right of RefusalActiveThis status gives a potentially interested party the right to buy a property before the seller negotiates any other offers.
Escape ClauseActiveThis clause permits the seller to keep the house on the market and when a second acceptable offer is received, the first buyer is given a short period to waive the sale contingency clause or cancel the first sale agreement so the house can be sold to the next willing and able buyer.
