Can sellers re-list the house if you have a ratified contract?

Help the community by answering this question:


If you have a good strong Contract, you shouldn't have to worry.
The Listing shouldn't have deleted while you were in Escrow; maybe someone WITHDREW it when they meant to change it to PENDING.

A Listing is a good sourse for Clients, and they may want to keep it as long as possible.

Concrats and good luck

The short answer is no, but it would depend on what contingencies are in the contract and whether or not they have been met. Have all contingencies been removed?

Hi Madhorns,

Can you clarify your question a little? It's impossible to give a correct answer without more info.

Are you saying they are still showing the house to potential buyers as if it is still available to purchase?
Or, as the other agents have referenced here, is it just showing as Active online?

There is a huge difference between the two.

A house should be listed as under contract in the MLS system once a contract is fully executed. If the deal is falling apart the seller should relist.

I have seen all kinds of Status messages in the listing service. Many agents hit the wrong button.
I guess the big question really goes to if all is ready to close. As Mr. Cabe has said, you need to see the contingencies resolved.
What did your agent have to say about it?

I concur with Mr. Cabe. What circumstances in this transaction have induced you to want to re-list the property?
