Do you mean siging a listing agreement and having the agent invest considerable marketing dollars and then not paying the commission? Who will be handling your contracts and disclosures?

Ultimately, selling your home should be a joint venture between you and your agent.....there are a lot of details that your agent handles that you may not even be aware of.

Most listing agreements obligate you to pay a commission to your realty company and Realtor in the event of a sale. Discuss the option with your agent and see if you can get Exclusions for specific buyers. Chances are that your whole experience selling your home is enhanced by contact with your Realtor -- remember to consider the time and effort involved in educating you about the market value, advertising, marketing, and simply adding a sign to the yard. If you don't think you're getting enough action from your Realtor -- shop around until you find one who performs beyond your expectations.

Audra,

Having an experienced full time agent on your side if first and foremost in today's market. Discuss this with them when discussing how to achieve your price and time line goals. Best wishes. Call or email if I can be of further assistance.

Audra,

Absolutely! I bet your agent will be estatic that you helped them sell it. Finding a buyer is a hard task, but negotiations are where your agent earns their commission.

Yes you can depends on how your listing agreement is authored. However keep in mind YOU MUST FOLLOW THE laws of your state to sell a property you could be sued if you dont follow all the requirements. You can follow under the agents e & o insurance policy if something should happen.
