Traditionally, a real estate agent wants to create a relationship with a seller that grants them the exclusive right to market and sell their property. For some, hiring, an agent on a full-service basis can make a lot of sense, but it’s not for everyone. Since the real estate market is oversaturated with traditional real estate agents, many sellers believe entering into an exclusive right to sell agreement is the only option when looking to sell. Obviously, with our service, this is not true. In today’s real estate market you have options that range from limited service to full service. Our service automatically cancels out the listing side of the commission. If the buyer is not working with an agent, no commission is due. In order to sell your home on the MLS, you must enter into a listing agreement. A listing cannot be entered into the MLS without first entering into an agreement with a real estate broker. Doing so is against the MLS rules and regulations. When consumers hear the word agreement they often get overwhelmed, but the fact of the matter is that entering into an agreement shows professionalism and it will also protect your interest. As a seller, you should want the agent to put what they are going to do for you in writing.
