Dear G.R.,
It seems like my home has been listed forever, with no action. Am I allowed to cancel the listing?
Feeling Listless in Bulverde

Dear Listless,
Patience is a virtue. But luckily for impulsive folk like you, contracts come with expiration dates. If you can’t wait that long, tell the agent that you want to cancel. Be nice about it, and they probably won’t put up too big of a beef but it will have to be in writing. If they give you a hard time you may just have to wait until the listing contract runs out. In the mean time you can interview other agents for the job….by the way there is usually a reason a house on the market has “no action”…maybe you should ask your current realtor to do a new market analysis and make sure you are priced right.
