Could you not withdraw it from the Market , leave it a month then sell to your friend?
In the UK, they are tightening up on the commission thing. Estate Agents have lost money because vendors have been selling on the internet whilst having their property with an agent. The agent, as it stands now, gets no commission. 😥 The law will be changed to say that the agent will be entitled to claim commission even if the property is sold via the internet. 🙄
