Exclusive Listing Agreement for selling home in Fuerteventura

Exclusive Listing Agreement for selling home in Fuerteventura

Often, the owner confuses the term “exclusive contract”, understanding it as a limit for the sale of his property.

Nothing could be further from the truth: The seller wants his property to sell at the highest price, but that cannot be achieved by “auctioning” it among several agencies.

The effort made is different depending on the agreement made by the parties, with the exclusive option being the best option for the seller, since it is the one with the highest level of effort, resources and services on the part of the real estate agency.

We differentiate between “open listing” and “exclusive agency listing”, to compare the commitment assumed by the real estate agency in each case.

The “open listing” with various real estate agencies

The owner usually thinks that by offering the management of the sale of his home to several real estate agencies, he gets a greater reach and more options to sell.

Reality is different: the process becomes complicated when several agencies are involved; We explain it by answering these questions:

• Who is responsible for the sale of the property in an open listing agreement?
No one, “the acquisition” is in the hands of several different agents and no one feels responsible for the sale of their property.

• Will all agents receive commission on the sale?
No, only the one who gets the sale.

• And the others?
They would work for nothing, so only basic marketing services are offered.

• What is the level of motivation to sell your property?
Very low, since at any time there can be a reservation from another agency, which is not even notified to the rest.

• If the agent doesn’t have a buyer at that moment, is he going to worry about finding one?
Hardly, because the agent is not happy to spend his energy without having any type of guarantee and he has already had several disappointments.

The owner sometimes sees that on real estate portals, as an idealist, the property appears several times and with different prices, even with different photos, of very poor quality.

The real estate agent knows that buyers can view the property with different agencies and their work will be much more complex, so your property will not be their priority.

Keep in mind that a commission note to several agencies not only does not facilitate the sale of your property, but it makes it difficult because none of the agents who represent you feel responsible when it comes to defending your rights.

And the agent does not care if the property is sold or not, since if he is not the one who sells it, he will not receive any remuneration. That is, it does not really seek the client’s objective, which is the sale of the property to the most qualified buyer.
