If you want to sell your home with a real estate agent, you absolutely must sign a list contract, according to Lenchek. If you list your home as „For-Sale-by-Owner“ (FSBO), you don`t have to work with a real estate agent and therefore you don`t need to sign a list contract. So if you choose an open list deal, you might end up doing all the work to sell your home, and you`re probably less money to be earned with the sale.

However, as with an open offer, you have the right to find a buyer on your own. If you find a buyer by yourself, the real estate agent would not receive a type of commission. The broker is free to work with another broker, which means that the second brokerage could bring in a buyer. Typically, a list commission is paid to the buyer broker, which is shared with the selling broker, which means that the seller pays both fees (Payment to brokers is usually negotiable; most of the time, the seller comes from negotiations with liability The duration of the listing agreement is negotiable.
