A listing contract is a written, legal agreement between the home owner (seller) and the listing broker. It can be written by the listing agent who works for the broker, but the agreement must be signed by the broker and is between the brokerage company and the seller.
There are several types of listing agreements but the primary one used to list residential property in Florida is the Exclusive Right of Sale Listing Agreement.
Other types of listing agreements include: Open Listing, Exclusive Agency Listing and a Limited Services Listing.
Some stipulations may apply. Check the written terms of your listing agreement and if you have any concerns, contact a licensed real estate attorney for advice.
