If you are in a fully executed contract, signed by all parties and deposit money was exchanged, the document needs to be honored, therefore really no reason to keep showing the unit....

Dear Samsam:

Assuming a contract of sale has been fully executed by both parties and the purchaser's down payment check has been deposited into the seller's attorney's escrow account... 99% of the time the broker will stop showing the property. However, sometimes (but rarely in Brooklyn) there could be reasons why an agent may want to continue to show a property, one being if the co-op has a really tough/difficult board and/or a history of denying applications to purchase.
