The thought of entering into a listing agreement with a broker can sound a little scary. To help alleviate your concerns, we use an industry standard listing agreement but we add the following provisions that most brokers do not. This helps ensure that our clients never have a bad selling experience with us.
We would never want a client to continue in a listing agreement that they felt was not in their best interest. So we allow our clients to terminate our agreement at any time and we will remove the listing and cancel our agreement within 48 hours.
A common question that we get from our clients is “what happens if a buyer without an agent wants to buy our house?” The answer is that we only represent you. If a buyer without representation wants to make an offer, we recommend that they self-represent or we can recommend that they hire an agent. If the buyer decides to self-represent, we will have them sign a disclosure and your overall brokerage commission is reduced to 3%. This ensures that our sellers receive our undivided attention and advice through the selling and negotiating process.
If you find a buyer through your own network such as a family member or friend, you can terminate our agreement and pay no commission. If you prefer to continue with our agreement in this situation, we will reduce our commission to 1% and will provide our standard selling advice and manage the process from contract to closing.
