Firing your agent
I’m a little surprised you can’t fire your agent after you’ve signed a purchase and sale. It’s been almost a year since I’ve signed my purchase and sale (requiring all of an hour of my agent’s time) and haven’t heard from him since and I’m two days away from closing. $10,000 for an hour of work is a pretty good deal for him. At least now that I work at Redfin I know I won’t make that mistake again – that mistake being the one where you think your agent is ‘free’ since the seller pays for them.
