Usually when realtors get a listing agreement, there is a clause, which states the no. of days that the agreement is good for, after the listing expires. After this date, the procuring clause is over. I've never seen it go more than 6 months...If the listing has a new broker, 2 yrs later, most likely, you are safe. If you want to see the listing again, let me know, and I can research it for you. Also, b4 u see the listing, you should have a professional realtor,, who is familiar w the area, do a comp analysis, and research the history, etc. to make sure the deal is a good one. I can also check to see if, perhaps, the property is in short sale/foreclosure process. All these factors matter in re to market value, and whether you can get a mortgage or not. I am a mortgage broker. I can help you in a comprehensive, professional manner. call 954-536-0648 or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
