The Florida real estate agent listing agreement is a contract that establishes terms and conditions for the sale of a residential or commercial property. After accepting representation by an agent, a property seller will use the agreement to define the price they wish to earn from the sale as well as the commission rate (%) or fee ($) offered to the agent for their listing services and other duties. The contract will specify a beginning and expiration date to establish the period of time in which the agreement will be effective. While the agreement is valid, the agent will have the legal right to list the property in accordance with the seller’s terms and to receive a commission upon the completion of the sale.
