How to Avoid Real Estate Expired Listing

March 10, 2015

Real estate listing contracts usually last several months. Six months is standard, but some agents may agree to only three months. No matter how long the contract to sell real estate is, both you and your agent want to avoid an expired listing. When that happens, the agent doesn’t get paid, and you are stuck with a home that hasn’t sold. Here are some tips to avoid an expired listing.Listen to your agentThough your agent may have a contract for six months, he or she would much rather sell your house in six weeks or six days. The faster your home gets sold, the less time and money your agent has to spend and the more money he or she will make. That means any advice you get is going to be focused on getting your home sold quickly and for as much money as possible. If your agent tells you to list it for a certain price, for example, that’s likely the price he or she feels will get you the quickest sale for the most money, so you should heed that advice.Stage your home properlyPricing you
