Should the realtor be paid for his marketing expenses or partial commission even when the house is not sold and the contract has ended?

Unfortunately for us realtors, there is usually no commission or marketing fees due if the house does not sell within the listing period. When the listing expires, the seller may renew with the same realtor or list with another realtor. Our goal is always to price the house correctly and do the bst marketing so that all parties are happy and everyone’s goal is met.

Our CAR listing contract does have a clause that if the property sells after the listing expires within a certain number of days (depending on what your agent put there), and the buyer had seen it at the time your realtor was marketing it, you may have to pay the commission. But if it is relisted with another realtor, there may not be any commission paid to the first realtor. Of course, you need to be sure that it is the same contract that I am talking about and no other changes were made between you and the listing agent at that time.
