A listing agreement is a document in which an owner enters into contracts with a real estate agent to find a buyer for the owner`s property. The owner executes the listing agreement to give a real estate agent the power to act as a broker when selling the owner`s property. However, the owner usually has to pay a commission to the real estate agent. Since almost all real estate transactions are based on the same considerations, most listing agreements require similar information. These include a description of the property (which should contain lists of all personal property remaining in the property at the time of sale, as well as all devices and devices that are not included), a list price, broker bonds, seller`s bonds, broker compensation, intermediation terms, a termination date for the stock exchange agreement and additional general terms. With an exclusive-authorized offer, a broker is designated as the seller`s sole representative and has the exclusive right to represent the property. The broker receives a commission, regardless of who sells the property, while the listing agreement is in effect. A listing agreement may also include documents relating to the listing of their securities on a stock exchange, for example. B of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). A list agreement authorizes the broker to represent the client and the client`s ownership with third parties, including the guarantee and submission of offers for the property.

Under the provisions of the Real Estate Licensing Act, only a broker can act as a broker to list, sell or lease another person`s real estate, and in most states, list agreements must be written. With an exclusive agency list, the seller employs a broker who acts as the exclusive agent of the real estate owner. The broker only collects a commission if he or she is the cause of the sale. In addition, the seller reserves the right to sell the property independently and without commitment. It is a non-exclusive type of list and the selling broker is the only broker who is entitled to a commission. In addition, the seller reserves the right to sell the property independently and without commitment. To trade on large exchanges, companies must enter into listing agreements with the exchanges themselves. They must meet certain criteria.

For example, in 2018, the NYSE had a significant listing requirement that included total shareholder capital for the last three years of more than $10 million, a global market capitalization of $200 million and a minimum share price of $4. In addition, for IPOs and secondary issuers, there must be 400 shareholders. Other major markets include the Tokyo Stock Exchange or TSE, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the Nasdaq and the London Stock Exchange (LSE).
