I am not going to agree to 90 days.

Certainly your choice. I will be curious to hear how that is received.

The D.C. marketplace is now a seller's market with listed homes receiving multiple bids and selling price above list is fairly common. The R.E. agents I work will request a 90 day listing, which includes a written agreement that the relationship may be cancelled with 24 hours notice. Essentially agents are agreeing to take on a listing with no commitment from the seller.

If there is an option to cancel, then 90 days could be acceptable. I will not accept unconditional commitment to an agent for 3 months.

This is a seller's market. There are many real estate agents, and few properties for sale.
