    I entered into an agreement with a real estate agent on July 24. The house went on the market on Oct 22, and was withdrawn on Oct 23. If I sell the house privately, am I liable for any commission to real estate agents?

    Depends on the terms of the agreement you signed with the agent.
    For example, if the agent first advertised and/or "introduced" the buyer to the property,
    then a commission is probably payable even if the buyer and seller reached an agreement
    without any further input from the agent.
