Help the community by answering this question:


It is the listing agents responsibility to extend the listing....which may have already be done, they do not typically disclose the length of their listing agreement anyway. Discuss with your Realtor and/or attorney to clarify. Regardless, should not be an issue if everyone still wants to move forward.

Where's your agent?

And if you don't have one at least get an attorney.

These are questions that someone with knowledge of your transaction should be handling.
One detail slipping through the cracks could cost you thousands!

Hire someone to protect your best interests!

Good Luck!

No worries there. Just sign a listing agreement extension and ask your agent to fax that to the lender and make it part of the short sale packet so it will be available when the negotiator start reviewing the packet for approval.

This situation I have come across often since i am a short sale and foreclosure expert.
The seller simply extends the listing to the closing date. Should not be an issue.

The bank will be aware that the listing is expiring soon and they will instruct the listing agent to extend the listing or if all else fails your closing attorney can ask for an extension.

Now,. if the seller has a law date (a date when the bank will take possession of the property-strict foreclosure) then and only then does the attorney asks for an extension because there is an offer being worked on.
I would just keep close contact with my realtor.

Good Luck with you home purchase!

Hi Homebuyer,
The offer that you made is an agreement between yourself and the seller of the property regarding property purchase.
The listing agreement is between the seller and the listing agent and is basically an agreement for the agent to be paid for their work.
Your offer should not be affected as it's separate to the listing agent's agreement.
If the listing agent wants to be paid for introducing you, however, they may wish to notify the seller in writing that you were introduced during the time period that the listing agreement was in force. Similarly, if you're dealing with your own agent, that person might want to confirm their rights inder the Agreement, as they're probably more at risk of losing out than you are.

Have your agent remind the listing agent that the listing is going to expire. The listing agent just needs to get a listing extention from their local Realtor® board or online.
