What does it mean, when people say active listing?

Active listing in real estate means that a property is on the market and available for sale right now.

If a homebuyer like the property, there is an opportunity to make an offer to buy this home.

The property owner may have received offers to buy home already, but none have yet been accepted. This means that there is an opportunity for buyer to make a proposal and write an offer to purchase the home.
