Listing your home
When you list your home with a sales representative, the listing agreement is the first formal step in marketing your property. This contract commits Royal LePage to actively market your home for a specified period of time. It also commits you to a pre-established marketing fee that is to be paid upon successful closing of the sale.
At the time of listing, there are other documents that will be very useful to the sales representative. You will probably be asked for the following:
- Plan of survey or location certificate – this may be required to complete the sale of your home
- Property tax receipts – the listing agreement requires current annual property tax assessments
- Utility bills for the past year (hydro, heating, electrical, etc.)
- Any documentation that is relevant to the sale of your home
