A Wisconsin real estate listing agreement allows a real estate agent and a property owner enter into an arrangement for the agent to sell the owner’s residential property on their behalf. If the agent negotiates a sale, they will earn a flat rate or a commission based upon a percentage of the final purchase price.

The property owner’s asking price, permitted marketing methods, property access, and listing period will all be included in the agreement. Once the document has been signed, the agent will be legally authorized to list, market, access, show, and negotiate the sale of the owner’s property.
