In terms of interface, I would try to find a way to stop them *before* they type up the new Listing.  In other words, say "No" when they try to go to the "New Listing" page, rather than when they try to Save it.

(Though you should block at the save point to just to be sure....)

The workaround you suggested actually doesn't seem like a bad idea.
