Utah Real Estate Listing Agreement

A Utah real estate listing agreement is a contract between a residential property owner and a licensed broker that authorizes the broker to market and sell the owner’s property. The completed document will list the property’s asking price, marketing permissions, commission percentage or rate, and the period of the agreement. If the agent successfully negotiates the sale of the property within the given period, they will be paid a percentage of the purchase price as their commission. Once the contract has been executed by both parties, the broker will be permitted to list, market, show, and negotiate the sale of the owner’s property.

  • Dual Agency (§ 162-2f-401a(3-4)) – An agent can represent both the buyer and a seller (dual agency) if they receive written consent from both parties. The legal term for a dual agent in Utah is a “limited agent.”
  • Purchase Agreement – A real estate contract that is signed by the buyer and seller of a residential property once a purchase price and terms have been negotiated.
