Quite a few listings, 15 to be exact, had their status changed to Contingent last week. A Contingent Status reflects "conditions to be met" such as "contingent on inspections", "contingent on bank approval if a short sale" or even "contingent on buyers loan approval". There are a multitude of reasons that a property could be Contingent and one thing to keep in mind is if you see a home that you are interested in and it is "Contingent" you should have your agent verify the reason for the contingency. You never know, a back up offer could be made and you could end up getting the home!
