listing expired, agent hasn't noticed, request to view
Our MLS listing expired August 31. We haven't been thrilled with our agent, but we planned to ask for a 3 month contract just because we didn't want to take it off the market this close to the slow holiday season. But the fact that he hasn't noticed that it's expired has us rethinking. After all, it's already off the market. Here's the real question. Yesterday an agent put a letter on the door stating that they had given the sheet on our house to a buyer without noticing it expired. They said that they are not soliciting to list our house, just show it to an interested buyer. My 1st thought was to tell them to call our agent--the sign is still up and the key box is still there. But we don't want to have to sign another contract with our former (?) agent. What obligation do we have to our agent? We're not trying to screw him out of the commission, but we also don't want to get stuck. Without going into too much detail, the only contact we have had with realtor since house was listed was at beginning of month 5 and beginning of month 6. Both initiated by us. Would appreciate any advice.
