I think you need to frame that question more clearly.

Why not let the agent do his/her job and sell it for you?

Consider taking a grammar class before you post your ad.

You are going to have a much worse time trying to sell it by yourself. If the property is remotely located, the average days on market might be a year. What type of activity have you had? Have you had any offers at all? Is it priced according to the market? If you don't like your agent, then terminate the listing agreement in writing.

Sure, you can do whatever you want to sell your property, however, if you happen to sell it to someone who had seen your property through the agent, you may still owe a commission for a certain time after the listing agreement expires. Read your contract.

You can take out an ad right now, but if you sell it, you still owe the commission to the agent.

Probably if you find a buyer now and wait until the listing expires to do the paperwork, you will still owe a commission to the agent.

I suggest that you do one of two things. Either advertise now to find a buyer and know you will pay the commission. Or else, wait for the listing to expire, and then advertise and find your own buyer.

You have a written contract with the listing agent. Get it out and read it and it will tell you what terms you have agreed to.
