Contract to Realtor?

1 Reply

If someone has listed their house with an agent - and the seller finds someone who wants to buy - are they allowed to do that? I thought they had to sell through that agent if they had decided to use one........

Have a seller very motivated to sell, but they say they are working with an agent as well.

There are different types of listing agreements but the only kind I will agree to is an Exclusive Right. That type is the most common and protects the seller and the sellers realtor in marketing a home. Why in the world am I going to invest time, effort, and money into getting a property sold and have someone come up to the owner and ask them to sell the home with no conpensation to me?
Who would reinburse me? I have to represent my seller but I also have to take care of my family.
