If no deadline is indicated by an exclusive authority, the auction period is thirty days after the auction date. In the case of a private sale, the standard period is 60 days after the signing of the distribution authority. When the agency must share commissions from the sale with others, the law defines “APP unity” as “agency or organization” (s6), and “organization” is defined as a natural entity, a company, a company, an association without legal personality or trust, which is not “a small entrepreneur, a registered political party, an agency, a public or territorial authority or a mandatory instrumentality of a state or territory.” One of the many decisions that homeowners face when deciding to sell is how they list their property. Most sellers opt for an exclusive listing agreement with a real estate agent, while others prefer to sign an open or exclusive agency list contract. This is the most common type of sales autonomy. This means that you appoint an agency to market and sell your property. We recommend that you first answer the key questions above, to make sure you have a good idea of your specific needs and some expectation, what a quality real estate agent can offer in terms of list agreements. Once you choose an agent, you can answer any other questions you have regarding the list agreements and the schedule for the sale of your property. There are pros and cons for everyone, so it`s important to choose the agreement that best fits your individual circumstances. We explain the difference between the three, so you can make the best choice for you.

Exclusive Sales Authority: A seller exclusively instructs the agency to market and sell the property through a private sale. A distribution agency agreement (of which 95% of the agreements are concluded in the form of sole agency agreements) a seller hires only a real estate agent. The commission must be paid, whether the property is sold or not. If the bidding process is different, it is usually included in the terms of the sales agency agreement. If a seller decides to sign an exclusive list contract, the property will get the exclusive right to sell, which means that the seller cannot sell the property himself without paying the agent`s commission. It is sometimes possible to include in the contract an exception allowing the seller to sell to family or friends within a specified period during which there are no commissions. This insidious document is the means by which a real estate agent is able to secure the seller, the property sold and all potential buyers who inquire about the property for a certain period of time and then for an indefinite period until the seller terminates in writing. As long as such an agreement exists, sellers are not allowed to use the services of another agent. However, this type of agreement usually has an end date after which you can decide to change agents. There are no standard agreements in the Northern Territory. However, the distribution agency agreement is the most used.

Sales agency agreement: a seller hires only a real estate agent. The commission must be paid, whether the property is sold or not. General sales authority: a seller appoints more than one agency to market and sell the property on a non-exclusive basis. The commission is paid to the agency that managed to secure the sale. These considerations are important because if your home has an outstanding sales contract, your contract must be renewed.
