Listing Status Explained

On our site, you will see the following types of listing status:
  • Active: The property is still actively for sale and a contract has not been accepted yet.
  • Under Contract: The property is under contract with a buyer, but has not closed yet. If you see a property where the listing status reads "Under Contract", you may want to click on the "Save to Favorites" button on the listing page. When you save a favorite listing, you can get automated email updates if a property that's under contract goes back to active status. In other words, if the existing contract falls through, you have the option of getting an email update right away. Note: You need to first register on this site in order to get automated updates on properties that go back to active status.
  • Sold: The property has already been sold.

Cumulative Days on Market Explained

Cumulative Days on Market is a representation of how long with the property has been actively marketed.

The main difference between Days on Market and Cumulative Days on Market is that Cumulative Days on Market represents active marketing through not only of the property’s current listing, but through other, recent listings of the property as well. Days on Market, on the other hand, only represents the time the property has been marketed under its current listing.

Prior to the local Realtor Association using the term Cumulative Days of Market, Realtors and homebuyers in the Charlotte region would sometimes focus solely on a property’s Days on Market. The problem with Days on Market displays was that sellers could allow their property listing to expire and then re-list, and their Days on Market would go back to zero. This could make a listing that had been on the market for a long time appear to be a completely new listing.

Since the change in terminology, when a new listing is entered, the Cumulative Days on Market only resets to zero if one of the following two actions occurs:

A) The previous listing closes (i.e., is sold).

B) The previous listing is off market (expired or withdrawn) for more than 90 days.

It should also be noted that Cumulative Days on Market typically do not accrue when a property is not being actively marketed – i.e., when the seller is not accepting showings on their property.

Recent County Property Assessments

Each county tax assessor’s office periodically assesses properties for tax collection purposes. Counties assess properties at different frequencies. For example, some counties may assess values every four years, while others may assess properties every eight years. In addition, a given property’s assessed value can change at any time – i.e., when a vacant lot is built upon or when an addition is made to an existing structure.

Also, because of the highly imperfect nature of the assessment process, assessed values are often a poor indication of market values. In other words, if a property’s list price is under or over its assessed value, this does not necessarily indicate whether or not the property represents a good value or not.

In addition, in some cases current assessment or past sales of a given home may represent vacant land, which has since been built upon. In other situations, a given parcel of land may have been combined with other parcels of land in a past sale.

Finally, because assessed values may change at any time, property buyers are encouraged to confirm assessment values with their county tax assessor before purchasing a property.

 What They’re SayingWhat They’re Saying


Our family was moving from out-of-state and had a very limited amount of time to find a home. Lyn Palmer exceeded all of our expectations. She truly listened to us to understand our needs and priorities. We are veteran home buyers, having been through the process a number of times. She allowed us to do our own research while providing critical background information. She also introduced new homes and communities for our consideration that we had not thought of on our own. She was flexible and gave us plenty of her time during our stressful house-hunting trip. She was responsive to our calls and texts. In the end, she sat with us at the closing table and helped oversee a successful transaction just 3.5 weeks after first contacting her. We were very pleased with her service and delighted that we saved so much in the process. We can offer our unqualified recommendation. Thanks Lyn.
Ryan and Brittany B.

Terra Vista Realty was a pleasure to work with and exceeded our expectations. Put simply, we received twice the service for half the price. We bought and sold our homes with Lyn Palmer. She was professional, courteous, smart, organized and very timely with communication. She had our house under contract in 25 days. We chose Terra Vista for the discounted commission and were pleasantly surprised with the exceptional service.
-Jonathan K.

Lyn is a phenomenal realtor! She helped us buy a house while we were relocating from Raleigh to Charlotte. She was flexible and was able to schedule showings for us while we were back and forth between Charlotte and Raleigh. She was patient and helped us put in two offers on two different houses. Both sellers were representing themselves and she negotiated on our behalf directly with the sellers. She went above and beyond making sure all the legal contracts were taken care of on both ends. Lyn is professional, smart, looks out for her clients best interest, easy to communicate with, and a pleasure to work with! She provided more than twice the service than any other realtor we have worked with in the past for half the cost. The 1.5% buyer incentive was great and allowed us to pay for all our closing costs. We are so happy that we found Terra Vista Realty and Lyn Palmer! We will highly recommend her to anyone that we know looking at buying or selling a house.
-Jeremy & Laura H.

My family and I were so grateful for the service that Terra Vista delivered. Lyn Palmer was both our buying and selling agent. She was professional, wonderful with communication, and kind. Lyn made the process of finding a home fun and no stress. She was always on time and helped make sure that closing ran smooth on both homes. My sister in Wisconsin (who is a real estate agent) recommended Lyn to someone she knew was moving to the area based on our experience. I will recommend Lyn as a real estate agent to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home.
-Luanne R.

We can't thank Tom and Lyn enough for helping us to find our perfect home. Being from out-of-state, we relied heavily upon them and they delivered! We felt like they had our backs the entire time and helped guide us through the process. We ended up with a beautiful home in a terrific neighborhood with great schools. They made themselves available anytime and handled the multitude of questions and coordinated the majority of the process for us. We would highly recommend them to anyone!
-David and Karen P.

My husband and I are very pleased with the personalized service we received from Lyn Palmer. She was a wonderful real estate agent who is very knowledgeable about the area where we chose to purchase a home. Lyn was always available to answer the questions we had throughout the purchasing process. The 1.5% buyer incentive was wonderful and paid for our entire closing costs. I would highly recommend using Lyn and Terra Vista Realty. I would definitely recommend her to all my family and friends who are in need of a real estate agent.
-Christie and Joe H.

Lyn was referred to us by a trusted friend and she exceeded our high expectations…. We have had very few buying experiences that would top this one. The rebate is a very nice added bonus. I would recommend Lyn and Terra Vista to my family and friends.
-Bobby and Jennifer V.

With the service we got from Terra Vista it is hard to imagine how anyone else would provide a better service. We worked with Lyn and were happy every step of the way. All the procedures and conditions were explained upfront. Viewings were arranged efficiently. She pointed out things that we should take note during showings… Lyn recommended a housing inspector and an attorney, both of whom we are happy with. Lyn negotiated with the seller's agent and got all the repair work we wanted. Also when there was a concern of a minor termite damage Tom came to inspect. (Tom is a builder as well.) So we are happy both because of the service we got plus the few thousand we saved!
-Jeevaka D.

I worked with Lyn on the purchase of my home in Charlotte. She was a pleasure to work with, helping with visiting the properties and looking after my interests at all times. Would thoroughly recommend her.
