Kentucky Real Estate Agent Listing Agreement

Updated August 02, 2023

A Kentucky real estate agent listing agreement is used to grant a real estate agent the legal right to represent a property owner in a transaction for the sale of a property. The listing agreement will specify various conditions under which the property must be sold. Such conditions will address the type of listing (e.g., open listing, exclusive right to sell), the term of the agreement’s validity, marketing strategies, the desired sales price, and the commission granted to the realtor upon completing the transaction. In most scenarios, the realtor will be given a commission based on a percentage of the total purchase price. Commission terms can vary depending on the realtor and seller’s preferences.
