Non Exclusive Listing
Seller gives an open listing to one or more brokers without having to pay more than one commission. ONLY the "procuring cause" will be paid the commission.
Exclusive Agency Listing
The owner employs only one broker but retains the right to personally sell the property, and thereby not pay a commission. However, if any other real estate company sells the property, the listing broker is still entitled to the commission stipulated.
Exclusive Right to Sell Listing
Under this listing arrangement, the broker employed is entitled to a commission no matter who sells the property during the listing period. (Even the Seller)
This type of listing agreement one in which the agent keeps anything beyond the sale price.
