Most exclusive listing agreements include a section on expiration or early cancellation. It is customary for the contract to expire on its own within a specified period – such as six months – during which the seller can choose another agent without penalty. The contract may also include a cancellation fee for terminating the contract prematurely. Miscommunication: If you prefer your agent`s daily or weekly updates and they don`t provide them, this is a good reason to cancel an entry. However, first give your agent the opportunity to improve their communication skills. Do not remove the list. Ask for an unlock: The time to request the cancellation of an offer is when you sign the listing contract. If you maintain the contract for a period of 3 months, it is easier to switch to a new agent. This is an element to negotiate and many listing agents prefer a minimum contract of 6 months.
