Field Name (Standard Name)?: PurchaseContractDate

Definition (May contain rules that must be observed)

With for-sale listings, the date an offer was accepted and the listing was no longer on market. This is the date entered by the agent reflecting when the change occurred contractually, not a timestamp of when the change was made in the MLS. With lease listings this may represent a meeting of the minds to lease, but some contractual requirements are yet to be fulfilled, such as contract signing or receipt of the deposit.
