What? You're trying to get released from a listing agreement? Unfortunately, we can't help with that. It would be an ethical violation. If you can't work it out, you can talk with an attorney.

So the issue is they put your home in the MLS for $7K less than you agreed to? Did they correct it? It's unfortunate that errors happen, but they do and they are correctable.

Beyond that, the listing agreement is probably a legally binding agreement, so you should seek legal advice.

Hello Patsy,

It depends on the comparable homes in the neighborhood. Your best bet is to contact a Realtor to give you a Compartive Market Analysis. This will let you know what your house should sell for. Your Realtor can also give you an estimated net proceeds to give you an estimate of what you will walk away from closing with after paying off your current loan. Your Realtor will also be able to give you an idea of what you could lease your home for. I would love you help you!! ... more
