A listing contract is a legal agreement between a real estate broker and an owner of real property, granting the broker the authority to act as the owner’s agent in the sale of the property.

Listing Contract:

The most common type of listing contract in this area is the exclusive right to sell. The seller must pay the brokerage a commission if, by the expiration date and listing contract, the real estate is sold, regardless of whether the buyer was obtained through the agency or not.
