Under contract: property is in contract, but has not closed yet. If contract falls through, home will become available again. Until that time, showings are not possible.
Back-up Offer: like a above, but accepting "waiting list" offers. If the contract falls through, the seller can pick from the back-up offers already on the table, instead of starting from scratch. In such cases, offers with the least contingencies, especially those with no financing clauses, have the best chances. Showings are possible.
Short Sale: property will be sold for less than face value of the mortgage. The owner is the seller, but the lender has to agree to the contract. Short Sales typically now sell above asking.
