I have a rental house that I am selling.
It has been listed with a Real Estate agent since Nov 07. Not one offer on it.
Some people from my parent's church are interested in buying it, but they want to do it For Sale By Owner -no Real Estate Agents involved.
My listing expires on Oct. 11.
How long after the listing expires can I sell it on my own? Is there a grace period?
Any ideas of how to cancel the listing beforehand? I don't want to lie, but I would rather sell to the church people for obvious reasons (more money for me, better deal for them, etc.).
I am in GA.
