Kentucky real estate listing agreement is a contract that spells out the rights and duties of a broker representing a client in the sale of real estate. In an effort to market the property and bring in purchase offers, the broker will put up “for sale” signs, host open houses, and post ads on real estate websites and in newspapers.

The broker shall, upon closing a sale, be entitled to a commission paid by the seller. This amount is typically 5-6% of the final sales price and will generally be shared with the buyer’s representation. However, if no sale is made during the listing term, the contract becomes void unless the parties agree to an extension in writing.
