Maybe you chose a real estate agent to sell your home for the wrong reasons — they promised to get you a really high price, they’re your mom’s best friend’s niece, or they offered the lowest commission rate. Whatever the case, your home has now been sitting on the market for so long that you’re starting to have flashbacks to fifth grade, when you were picked last for the kickball team. Only your house for sale in San Diego, CA or Columbia, SC isn’t getting picked at all.
It’s a bit more difficult to break up with an agent when you’re the seller instead of the buyer since you signed a listing agreement. Many agents will let you out of the agreement if you’re dissatisfied, but you might be forced to wait for the contract to end. Either way, you should be aware of the signs that indicate a breakup could be in your future.
