Cancelling a Listing over the Holidays?
Please use a Suspension instead.
Sellers requesting their property be taken off the market for the holidays do so for a reason – to have some peace and no intrusions.
In this market however — expect an onslaught of canvassing on cancelled listings – Suspend a listing instead.
Example: One of our sellers took ill and requested a short break – but it turned out to be a nightmare — they were overwhelmingly disturbed with phone calls and strangers appearing at their door.
Our Agents Helped: They relisted the property for a day and then suspended it. Calls and harassment stopped immediately thereafter.
If your listing needs a break – Suspend vs Cancel. Cancellations are the absolute last resort.
