This is not a popular type of agree listing. The reason is that there is not much incentive for agents to spend money on marketing your home. If you come with your own buyer, they have spent money that they cannot recover through the real estate commission. In addition, it is too easy for a greedy buyer to go around the agent and negotiate directly with the seller. The “open list” is mainly used by people trying to sell their home by homeowners who are also willing to work with real estate agents. Basically, a real estate agent has the right to make buyers to see your home. If your client buys your home, the agent earns a commission. There is nothing exclusive in an open offer and a home seller can distribute such offers to any agent who walks around. A real estate seller performs the same activities as a broker, with the exception of entering into an agreement or transaction.
A seller also has no authority or control over trust funds. If you find an agent willing to accept such an offer, don`t expect too much from them. You`ll probably just put it in the multiple list service and sit around to see if anything happens. A good agent would never accept such an offer, and you probably want a good agent. Brokerage sellers often present a standard list agreement (an agreement that contains “standard language”). These agreements are often used in practice. (However, they are not developed by the Real Estate Office or the State Government.) You can negotiate different terms acceptable to you and the broker. A listing agreement allows a real estate agent to sell land and obtain a commission when the sale is completed. The listing agreement may or may not be exclusive.
If it is exclusive, the real estate agent is entitled to a commission, no matter who sells the house. If it is not exclusive, the real estate agent will only receive a commission if he sells the house.

If you take over the services of a listing broker to sell your property, you become the real estate agent`s client. This broker represents you, the seller, and owes you loyalty, confidentiality and responsibility. In negotiations on the best price and the best conditions, he must put your interests first. Non-exclusive listing agreements can benefit sellers because they do not have to pay a commission to an agent if they do the marketing to get the house sold. For example, if you find a buyer for your home on your own, you don`t have to pay commission to your non-exclusive listing agent at the time of the sale. Non-exclusive listing agreements also allow a seller to list a home with many agents, and they ask for payment of a commission only to the agent who actually sells the house. The downside of non-exclusive listing agreements is that if agents are not guaranteed, they should not try to sell the property as aggressively (or in general) as they would if they had an exclusive list. Only licensed real estate agents and sellers can help you buy, sell, rent or exchange real estate.
