How long does an agent have after signing on to represent the seller to publicly list a home?

Thank you for all the good advice.  She has responded to my email and says she will have the listing up within the day.  We'll see.

I appreciate the time each of you took to address this issue!

What did you agree to in the written listing agreement?  Did she describe it as a pocket listing?      What did she say when you interviewed and chose her?

After re-reading what you've signed, I'd put some pressure on.  That would include copying her managing broker on the communications.

We signed the listing agreement two weeks ago, and she showed the house for the first time within three days.  Of course, we were happy about this, since she often serves as the buyers agent for new doctors at the hospital very near our place.  Now, however, we are wondering if she is going to put up a listing at all and when.  I have emailed her to ask her.

Once the Real estate listing agreement is signed, depending on where you live, in St Petersburg fl, our mls mandates to have it listed within 48 hrs.  But if it needs work before it hits the market, then it can be listed whenever you want at the discretion of the owner.  Needs to be staged, cleaned and marketed correctly.
Let me know if you have any other real estate needs.

We have staged the house and it has been shown several times by our agent (who, by the way, is probably acting as a dual agent since we signed that we would allow her to).  We have heard nothing from her except for when to be away from the house so she can show it.  There is no MLS listing, and I think she is trying to keep it to herself so she can choose the buyer.  Do we have any recourse?

Hello:
It depends on the listing contract that you signed. Sometimes the house will need to be prepped and staged correctly for your agent to sell your home. If the home is a disaster and then becomes listed, potential home buyers that view the property will pass on your home and go to another one. You defiantly want your agent to properly market the home. This includes professional photos,measurements, obtaining a home warranty, getting an inspection and strategically pricing the home to sell. Then you would begin to publicly list the home.

Did you, as seller, sign a listing agreement? If so there is no set time, but why would it not be done the next day, or sooner, unless you asked them to wait? Many MLS systems have a requirement that a listing must be entered, in a short period, after a sign is placed in the yard. Something like 2-3 days is average.

There would be only 2 reasons I can think of that an agent would not enter the listing quickly, unless asked by the seller not to so you can clean up or fix things.

1. very lazy

2. wants to keep it a secret so they can sell it themselves.

You need to demand it be listed ASAP or call the office broker and talk with them.
