Pending sales figures, also called homes under agreement, are an indicator of housing sales for the next 30 to 90 days. A pending sale is when the buyer and seller agree on the terms of the sale of a home and have a signed purchase and sale agreement, but have yet to close and record the deed at the Registry of Deeds. Not all pending sales will close.
