Get Exclusive Service When Listing

Why An Exclusive Listing Agreement

MAKES SENSE FOR THE SELLER

It generally results in a higher selling price. When the agent feels that his time and money investment is relatively safe, he will take his time to negotiate or turn down offers that are not the highest and best offer possible.

It allows the agent to invest more in advertising. When you grant the agent an exclusive listing agreement, the agent can invest more in advertising as his investment will be relatively safe. Otherwise, he will rather invest his money somewhere else.

It gets more agents to work for the seller. With an exclusive listing agreement you are giving the agent the freedom to share your listing with as many agents as possible. Your property actually has more – not less – exposure with an exclusive agreement!

It keeps you better informed. The agent will be committed to providing you a first class service and to keep you better informed

throughout the steps of the transaction. Information is power, and you should have as much information as possible!

It is safer, especially in markets with a high crime rate. When many people have access to a property it is very difficult to determine who is in, who is out, and who has been there. Anything can go wrong and nobody will be responsible for it. An exclusive listing agreement provides the seller the safety that he/she deserves.

Avoids conflicts. When the marketing of a property is assigned to several real estate people, it is common that there is disagreement and conflicto among them, and the owner could be involved. When you grant an exclusive listing agreement there is no chance for conflict, since the RE/MAX Agent is the only person responsible for the marketing.

It allows the agent to place a yard sign. With 60% of the buyers coming from yard signs, you want a RE/MAX sign on your yard! Generally the agent will not give you the option to place a sign without an exclusive listing agreement, as he could be working for no compensation for his efforts.
