About this Course

One of the main ways that real estate licensees profit from real estate transactions is through listing agreements. These are written contractual agreements between property owners and real estate licensees in which the licensee markets a property on behalf of an owner.

Given their importance to a licensees' income, it's important for you to understand the different types of listing agreements, what makes a listing agreement valid, and who may enter into listing agreements with consumers.

In accordance with TREC rules Sections 535.71 and 535.72D, this module will help you become familiar with the basic legal concepts and forms used in listing real property and the different types of listing agreements available. It also presents an overview of the listing process through a step-by-step review of the basic listing form and contents.

Although listing agreements vary from broker to broker and state to state, the core concepts remain the same. It is these core concepts that this course will address, including the general content, form, and legal implications of typical agreements. We'll use real world dilemmas and applications to help you understand the information presented.

Upon completion of this course, you'll know how to successfully obtain listings (through prospecting and other means), how to maintain listings through quality representation, and how to retain loyal clientele and gain referrals for future business. Elective
