yes, I'd take it for 30 days with the opportunity to have my marketing reviewed and the listing extended for 30 day periods, if necessary.... I would not take it if it were over priced....

Everything depends on what it is and how much I wanted it. My answer would be, "why put a short time limit on it? You can cancel it any time". If the seller worries about "days on market", remind him/her that it will still show up on the "history" that it's been in and out of escrow. Just can't see any other reason they would have such a short term on it.

I've never heard of a board dictating listing terms. That's a negotiated term between seller and brokerage. Anything less than 90-120 days... I don't take and it depends on the market, the home, the neighrborhood. Too much time and money is spent upfront to market a home to have it go away in 30 days and let the next agent benefit from the momentum you built.

Interesting that your board rules dictate terms of a listing.

I probably would take it as most of my listings are under contract well within that time period.  However at 30 days the listing would expire prior to closing and therefore there would need to be a clause that the listing that stated property to be extended in MLS to date of close.  

It just would not make sense to have a listing expire when it's under contract or prior to closing.  I also would not take an overpriced listing even with the promise of reducing.  I spend way too much money and time to market homes to allow a ridiculous time frame.

It depends on the market.  I would want to understand why they are hung up on only listing it for 30 days.  Presenting current market trend and a marketing plan may help the understand the reality of the time to sell the house.  Also, at what price point? At $200K or less it will go quickly in most markets, but and a million plus slower in many markets.  at the right price point  would take it.

Depends how it is priced, how it is positioned in the market. A lake property priced right, grab it and growl. You are going to a closing without a bank. Shortage creates value, pricing controls decision making. For you the agent taking the listing with the minute time attached, for the buyer where time is money to if poised to close quickly. Do a good job and they see you showing the property, communicating in timely manner and why wouldn't they relist and extend listing?
