The Listing Contract: Its All in the Details
Now that you've chosen a real estate professional to sell your home, you'll need to work together to complete a listing agreement. This legally binding contract authorizes a broker and his or her real estate professionals to find a buyer for your home, according to the conditions specified in the contract. Depending on the type of listing agreement, you can expect to see most of these terms detailed in the document.
Terms of the Agreement
Under Terms of the Agreement, you'll also find the price of the home. You and your real estate professional should arrive at the home's market value after considering the Comparative Market Analysis (prepared by your representative) and other factors.

Description of the Property and Its Condition
Although the forms are preprinted, everything in a listing agreement is negotiable and may be tailored to reflect your specific requirements. Your real estate professional will complete the listing agreement based on your input, so you may want to take time before you meet to consider your response to each section of the contract. The more prepared you are, the less likely you'll have a misunderstanding down the road.
