A Maryland real estate agent listing agreement grants an agent permission to sell a property owner’s real estate in exchange for a commission. The agreement addresses vital details including the listing price, the type of compensation offered to the agent (commonly given as a percentage of the sales price), marketing procedures, and the beginning and expiration dates of the contract. It is in the agent’s best interests to seek an extended agreement period in order to secure the highest possible sales price. This way, the seller yields the most significant return for their property thus providing the agent with a greater commission.
