How can I get out of a listed house in order to sell it For Sale By Owner?

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.

Any reason not to take a house off the market temporarily?

What's the downside of taking a house off the market temporarily (say, a couple of months)? My inlaws are trying to sell a house, it's taking a while, and the real estate agent suggested this so it wouldn't seem stale. Any reason not to do it?

Dream house lost.

I put an offer on a 100+ year old house in Galena, Illinois a year ago. The owners and I couldn't agree on a price so the deal fell through. It was a terrific rehabbed house on a hill with fireplaces in every room, a state of the art kitchen, guest quarters and a view of the whole town from the front window. I have become rather obsessed with this house and even checked up who, later, did purchase it. The strange thing was the sale price was less than my offer but it included something called "personal property" for 20k which the buyers apparently, added to the price of the house with the approval of the sellers. I've bought and sold condos and one house before but I never heard of including "personal property" in a deal. Did they throw in a car or artwork or something? Seems odd to me. I know I should get past this house but I just can't. Thanks for any input.
