Some contracts have automatic renewal clauses that automatically extend the list period by a certain amount, for example. B 30 days, in the absence of sale. Automatic extension clauses create a contract with no actual expiry date and are not in the seller`s interest because the broker is not motivated to sell the property within a reasonable time. As a result, in many countries, extension clauses are illegal and most types of standardized real estate do not have the clauses. If the broker is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the agreement must contain all the following conditions: the listing agreement may have a multiple list clause allowing the broker to list the property on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), which is both an association of brokers and a database of real estate objects provided by brokers participating in the multiple service listing. Only real estate that a broker is allowed to sell exclusively or who is the exclusive agent can be listed in the MLS. All brokers have the right to sell any property on MLS, regardless of the agent who listed it. The broker is the broker who has signed an exclusive right to sell or an exclusive agency list, while the selling broker is the broker who finds a buyer for the property. Brokers who are part of the Multiple Listing Service agree to divide the commission between the listing broker and the sales broker. With an open offer, a seller employs any number of brokers as agents. It is a non-exclusive type of list and the selling broker is the only broker who is entitled to a commission. In addition, the seller reserves the right to sell the property independently and without commitment. While the seller is not limited to a price determined by a competitive market analysis or even a formal valuation, the broker will have little interest in selling a property at a significantly higher price.
A price that is too high will be difficult or impossible to sell before the listing contract expires, and brokers, like most people, do not want to work for nothing. Listing contracts may also have a broker safeguard clause that entitles the broker to a commission if the property is sold to a buyer introduced by the broker within a specified period after the expiry of the listing agreement. The period of implementation of broker protection clauses is often the same period as the listing agreement. A net list indicates that the seller receives a predetermined amount of money from the sale of the property, the rest goes to the real estate agent. The real estate agent can offer the property for any amount above the net amount go to the seller. However, because the broker often suggests the sale price to the seller, this can create a conflict of interest, since the broker is motivated to get the seller to accept a lower selling price, so that his own profit can be maximized. An exclusive agency listing agreement gives a broker the right to market and sell a property for a certain period of time, while the owner retains the right to find a buyer and sell the property without having to pay commission to the broker. The seller must pay a commission only if the house is sold by the broker or by an agent or a licensed sub-agent of the real estate agent. This type of list is not very common in residential stores, because it increases the chances of a dispute between the broker and the seller about who was actually the cause of the sale supply. Note: These definitions are provided to make it easier to categorize lists in MLS compilations.
In any area of conflict or inconsistency, priority is given to the law or regulation of the state. If national law allows brokers to list real estate on an exclusive or open basis without establishing an agency relationship, listings should not be excluded from MLS compilations, as the listing broker is not the seller`s agent.
