Quote of the day: 
I haven’t failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.  -Thomas Edison



How not to get screwed by a Real Estate Agent:
The screw Story: "My Agent locked me into a long term listing contract and I had no idea that I agreed to the length of time. They have done a poor job, I have not heard from them for months and now I can’t get out!"
How to protect yourself: The very first page of the listing contract has the dates that the listing will commence and expire. 







It is normal to see a 3 month listing period as listings generally take 45-60 days to sell in a balanced market. Where you see the red circle is where the dates are agreed to. Look at this before signing the contract. If the listing date is over 6 months the area must be initiated for extra attention. Make sure you understand the length of the listing and contract. You are locked into this contract unless you hire someone like myself who offers an easy exit listing agreement guaranteeing my work and if you are not happy you will be released from the contract with 24 hour notice.
