Talk to your agent.  Let them know what your thinking.  Advertising is not cheap, so I would highly recommend you reimburse your agent.  They in good faith advertised your home for you at your request.  It also cost  money to put listings into the MLS, plus the countless other websites we upload your listing in. 

Best of luck to you!

You can take it off the market, the listing contract could be terminated, but in all fairness, if the agent has invested time and money you should reimburse for that and go back to that agent when one day you decide to sell again.

Thanks for posting your question on Zillow.com!

Yes, you can simply let the agent (assuming you have one) know as nobody except the bank can force you to sell.

Good luck! :-)

You are not obligated to sell even if someone offers you full price.
Most realtors will let you out of the listing agreement if you have changed your mind. Why would they want your listing if they know you will say no to all offers?

Ron is right .. there is nothing that says you have to sell the home unless you have a contract on it.  But if you have it list with a real estate company you should check your listing agreement to see if you might own them for the work they have already done.

Take it off the market and wait until you change your mind again.
