Texas Real Estate Listing Agreement

A Texas real estate listing agreement is a contract that outlines the arrangement between a real estate agent and a property seller that authorizes the agent to handle the listing, marketing, and negotiating of the seller’s residential property. The completed document will include the desired purchase price for the property, the term (length) of the agreement, and the agent’s compensation (commission/fees). Under this contract, the seller also gives the agent permission to show the property to interested buyers and, in most cases, keep a key to the residence in a lockbox on the premises.

  • Dual Agency (§ 1101.559 and § 1101.561) – Dual agency is not permitted under state law. However, real estate agents may act as intermediaries between a buyer and seller with written consent from both parties.
  • Purchase Agreement – A real estate contract that is completed and executed by a buyer and seller for the sale of residential property.
