Listings Expire While Under Contract?

MLS Helpful Tip

Did you know that listings do not automatically expire while under contract?

If you have a listing where the contract expires during the escrow period, to be on the safe side and protect your commission, you should renew the listing agreement, just in case the escrow doesn’t close.

Calling All WOW Listings

MLS # 180926

Congratulations to Barbara Sloan from Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty, Inc on being chosen as the WOW Listing of the Week for December 7-14. MLS Listing #180926 will appear on the front page of AlohaLiving.com as the WOW Listing of the week. Thanks for the great submission, Barbara, this listing has tons of WOW!

Want Your Listing to Be the Next WOW Listing of the Week?

We are currently accepting submissions for a new weekly article series that AlohaLiving.com will be starting in December.

WOW! Listing of the Week: Do you have a listing that has something about it that makes you say, “Wow!” Perhaps the property has an interesting history, a completely unique feature, a view that is over the top, or something that clearly sets it apart from the rest of houses in the neighborhood. If so, then we want to hear about it.

Each week, the AlohaLiving.com staff will choose ONE listing to feature as the Aloha Living Network WOW! Listing of the Week. The listing with the most WOW will also be featured on the AlohaLiving.com homepage.

To submit a listing for consideration, please e-mail the following information to wow@alohaliving.com.

1. MLS Number of the Property – Property must be Actively on the market, no contingent or under contract listings will be accepted.

2. Two Photos-Please attach two photos of the property to your e-mail. If possible, include one exterior and one interior shot.

3. Why It’s Got Wow- Please write a couple of short paragraphs about why this particular property has the WOW factor. No more than one or two paragraphs, please. If your listing is chosen to be a WOW! Listing of the Week, we will contact you for more details about the property.

The Fine Print: Only one listing may be submitted per agent.

WOW! Listing of the Week is a trial article series for the month of December. If the program goes well, it may be extended, and we will ask for more submissions. There are no guarantees that your property will be chosen to be the WOW! Listing of the Week, however if your listing is chosen, there will be no fee for having your listing in the article series.
