UHi Robirths, yes you absolutely can. I used to be a Realtor and they can serve many good purposes such as handling the showings, advertising, guiding you through the process when you don't know what to do when and being a buffer between you and the person who's made an offer on your home. What they cannot do that many people mistake is give out legal advice, or persuade you to accept, deny or counter an offer. If it's your first time selling I'd recommend hiring one. Do beware of those who are well known for high sales volume in your in community because even though they should treat every client the same, it just isn't humanly possible to do so when you have several listings at once. You may even get passed off to another Realtor in their office and find that you have a difficult time reaching them which should never be the case. I wasn't one of the largest producers in the market I worked in but I did refer a few listings to another Realtor from our office and earned a small referral fee off of those. I had a good idea of how many I could handle and still give each person the attention they deserved. If you've never sold a home before then I would probably hire one this time to see how the process works.,After that I might try and handle?. Once an offer is agreed upon, the buyer needs to call the title company or attorney where you plan to close (it's customary that the buyer pay for the appraisal and title search although not required.) You need to also go through the contract, as does the buyer and make sure everything agreed upon has been taken care of and request to see a copy of the HUD Statement from the title company which will break down will show sho is paying for what and make sure it's correct before sitting down at the closing table. Unless you've put in the contract that possession will be given on a different date and time, this is when you'll be handing over the keys. Good luck!!! ... more

Unless there's some rather odd clause in your listing agreement, yes. It's generally contingent upon the home closing, regardless of the closing date in the purchase contract.

There are quite a few ways to go in this situation. The first step for me would be to see what properties had gone under agreement since your property had hit the market. I would bring those to you to talk about the next step (price drop, etc).

Good luck in the selling of your property.

If your house is priced right, has a good location and is staged, it should sell. It also depends on your market area and the number of like properties that are selling in your area. Have you had your home professionally staged? How is your home being marketed? i'm certain that your Realtor has some creative ideas and answers to whey it is not selling.

Good luck!
