California Real Estate Listing Agreement

Fill Now Click to fill, edit and sign this form now!

A California real estate listing agreement is a type of contract used to grant authority to a real estate broker to sell residential property for a seller. The broker, and the agency they work for, may be given exclusive rights to sell, which means they are the only agency representing the seller and will receive a commission (a fixed rate or percentage of the sale price) for their services regardless of how a buyer is found. Otherwise, the agreement may be set up so that the seller doesn’t pay a commission if they find a buyer without the agency’s help (“exclusive agency”) or can even hire multiple agencies (“open listing”).

Other important factors that must be determined in a listing agreement are the commission rate, the length of the agreement, marketing and advertising, and the duties and obligations of both parties.
