Thank you for this useful information: in California, do I have to wait until the end of the initial offer period to reinstate her with another agent? My agent was upset that I cancelled and shows the house as an “off market”, but not as a “remodant listing” – He still shows under his brokerage on Zillow. And once he canceled it in MLS? I have received calls from other agents. Shouldn`t he have taken away my personal data? You may have changed your mind and decided you didn`t want to sell your home. Maybe you didn`t get the state job you were sure you would do. Maybe your agent is doing a poor job and you want another agent. Maybe you`ve decided to rent it out or let your aging parents live there instead of selling. There could be a number of reasons or no reason at all. Maybe you just want to terminate the listing agreement. Form RLA, revised 12/15, aka Residential Listing Agreement, Exclusive Authorization and Right To Sell.) It should be noted that there may also be reservations within the cancellation yourself, that you may be obliged, as a seller, to pay part or all of the commission initially agreed. This too should be discussed at the time of listing and mutually agreed between the seller and the agent/broker.
The California Real Estate Agent Listing Agreement is a contract that gives a broker the power to sell an owner`s property on their behalf. The agreement allows them to list the property and, in most cases, offer them exclusivity for the real estate transaction and potential commission.. . . .
