What does TNAS listing status mean?


An MLS listing status of  TNAS means 'Temporarily Not Available to Show'… it is not pending, nor is it actively available for showings, but it is still listed for sale.

Here are some examples of how it is used…

  • Homeowner or someone in the household is sick and can't have showings for a period of time but the property is still listed for sale
  • New carpet is being installed, interior is being painted, etc and showings are on hold while the work is being completed
  • Property is sold subject to inspection with no more showings until the contingency is removed
  • Property is sold subject to bank short sale approval and sellers don't want any more showings while it is being resolved
  • Sellers don't want showings over the holidays, while having overnight guests, in the dead of winter, etc but want to keep the property still listed for sale and will make it available for showings again at a future date

When a seller asks to have the status changed to TNAS it isn't available for standard showing requests so it doesn't appear in online searches and  it does not accumulate market time. But if a potential buyer or agent contacts the listing agent a special showing may be arranged since it is still listed for sale… sometimes an option sellers choose during slow market periods.
