The listing agreement will specify how long you agree to list your house with a company. Your REALTOR® will probably suggest an average time that homes like yours are on the market. You want a period that's long enough to motivate your REALTOR® to advertise your home and respond to buyers, yet short enough to allow you to change to a different company if you become unhappy with the REALTOR®'s service. Remember that the listing agreement is a contract. You should get a copy for your records. Your REALTOR® is bound to the terms just as you are. You can expect the REALTOR® to keep appropriate information confidential and effectively market your property.

GREATER PORTLAND LANDMARKS
is happy to announce that
Deering has arrived!
Greater Portland Landmarks presents Deering, a new publication that focuses on the architectural and social history of Portland beyond the downtown peninsula area from the 17th through the mid 20th centuries. Authors William David Barry and the late Patricia McGraw Anderson share their discoveries about how Portland has evolved in this 216 page hardcover text, which is richly illustrated with historic photographs, maps, and paintings, and includes new photographs by architectural photographer Todd Caverly.
Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr., Director of the Maine Historic Preservation Commission and State Historian, said: "Anderson and Barry have accomplished a monumental achievement in bringing order and clarity to the complex story of Deering - its topography, its villages, its buildings, and its people."
Deering is a companion to Greater Portland Landmarks' signature publication, Portland, first published in 1972 and still available, and is an excellent resource for everyone interested in the development of our City.
To order your copy: http://portlandlandmarks.org/ or call 207-774-5561.
Greater Portland Landmarks promotes preservation and revitalization of historic buildings, neighborhoods, and landscapes and encourages high-quality new architecture to enhance the livability and economic vitality of Portland and surrounding communities.
