New York State has a rule that 55+ communities have about 80% of residents that are 55+. However, each individual HOA community sets their own rules. Therefore you need to read the requirements and policies for your community. I would advise you work with a realtor because it will be difficult to find buyers in this age group. ... more

As I am now number 9 in the answer pool I think you have the idea. When interviewing an agent it you may want to know how many years they have been in the business, you may want to search for Google them and see what they have accomplished, and then ask the pertinent questions regarding what they can do to help you with your property. ... more

Maya,

Additionally....as you move forward and consider your options, whether it is with the old or a new agent, it may be beneficial to keep these factors in mind when trying to sell your home:

1. The homes price...the very first factor buyers contemplate

2. Curb appeal..."make it shine" ....it will bring your buyer(s)

3. Visibility...make certain the world knows...the more people that know about the opportunity your home presents, the greater the chances for your success.

Best wishes,

Bill

Have your listing agent post here on Trulia, a non realtor can't list a property, or create blog post.

Keep in mind you must follow state laws sale any property if you don't could get sue why home owners use Agents for protection

It looks to me as though the water is a little murky here.
This is not legal advice. For legal advice ask an attorney.

In real estate there is term called "procuring cause". How is did it come to pass that the agent that had the buyers knew about your home being on the market?

In most cases the reason they knew is due to the agent's marketing. Legally the question boils down to the fact the if they found out based on the agent's marketing, then you owe them a commission.

You should also know that most brokers know (the people for whom the agent works) that is it not uncommon for buyers to wait until the listing expires to contact the sellers directly, hoping to "save the cost of the commission". Because you are dealing with people's livelihoods (to you it is a commission, to the Realtors it is how they earn a living), I would not be surprised IF you opted to not use your agent, the broker would let the transaction close, then sue you for performance (meaning they would prove, and probably could do so, that it was due to their agent's marketing activity that the buyers were aware of the property. So your relative may not take action , but their broker probably would.

The fact that they never offered you a copy of the listing contract concerns me Did you ask them for a copy?

Good luck..
