Active typically means that the property is available yes.
Active means that the property is available and can still be shown. Sometimes an active listing may have an accepted offer but the agent and seller wants the property to still be shown to secure backup offer in case the first one does not work out. Once there is a fully executed contract then the status of the property will be changed to conditional contract.
It is a violation of HGAR MLS Rules for HGAR member agents to list the status of a property as Active if, in fact, it is In Contract. If a property is In Contract, the listing agent must change the status from Active to Conditional Contract.
Active means it is still being sold, it is possible it is in contract and not available.
Active status generally means the property is available. However, even if a property is Active (available), there may be an Acceptable Offer on the property. Once there's an Acceptable Offer, the property will generally continue to be shown after offer acceptance but before contract signing. (Sometimes the listing agent will, at the owner's discretion, indicate there is an Acceptable Offer and there are no more showings.) During this time the buyer conducts an inspection, and the contract terms are being negotiated by and between the buyer and seller attorneys.
