The Listing Agreement and What It Means to You
In the most basic sense, a listing agreement is a contract between the seller and the listing broker that sets out the conditions of the listing. In essence, you are hiring an agent to work with you towards the goal of selling your property. While the details of the agreement should be negotiated, it generally includes the length of the listing period, the desired sales price, and the amount of the commission. The Selling St. Charles County Team understands that the trust needed to take this step must be earned; therefore it will only be after you feel comfortable and confident that we can sell your home that the agreement will be discussed.
Though the legalities involved are certainly serious business, it is important to consider what the agreement signifies as well. Once signed, a listing agreement creates a true partnership between you and The Selling St. Charles County Team. Moving forward your goals and our goals are one and the same: a SOLD sign. Remember, the credibility and ethical standing of any Realtor is on the line once this relationship is established. The significance of this fact can’t be overstated, as a real estate agent’s reputation is all-important. Accordingly, we commit to you to live up to our good name when we assist you in selling your home.
