How to Exclude Contingent Listings in Flexmls - METRO MLS Blog

Finding listings that are not Active With Offer in today’s low-inventory market can be difficult. Flexmls makes it easy to exclude those contingent listings from your searches, so you can only view Active listings.

Active With Offer means the property has an accepted offer. Meanwhile, the listing broker can still show the property and accept secondary offers. Unless you tailor your search in Quick Search to exclude contingent listings, these listings will appear with other Active listings.

To exclude contingent listings, start by clicking on Quick Search in Flexmls. On the Quick Search screen, select your desired property type. Then in the search preferences section, click on the Contingent field.
