Entering into a Listing Agreement is the first formal step in marketing your home to prospective buyers. As your chosen real estate professional, I will:

  • Explain the Listing Agreement document, a contract that commits Royal LePage to market your home for a specified period of time in exchange for a marketing fee or commission, paid upon successful closing of your home sale.
  • Discuss the marketing fee and the specific value you will receive in exchange for that fee.
  • Outline the details of the agreement including the asking price, a description of the property, inclusions and exclusions, annual property taxes and any rights of way, easements, liens, or charges against the property.
  • Request any required supporting documents such as property survey, property tax receipts, deed or title search documentation.
  • Ask you to authorize your mortgage lender to verify your current mortgage details, where applicable.
  • Request other documentation such as expenses related to heating, electrical and water consumption as well as receipts for any improvements to assist your home sale.
