The Multiple Listing Contract Explanation Guide


The Multiple Listing Contract (MLC) is used when a seller engages a Realtor to list their property on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). The MLC outlines the professional relationship between the Seller, the Seller’s Realtor, and the Seller’s Realtor’s Brokerage and also outlines the terms of the listing and agreement including listing price & date your property will be on market.

* This contract is giving permission to "market" your property (to attract a buyer) this is not "selling" your property. *

This section will review how commission payments will be handled, both in total and how they will be distributed between buyer brokerage and listing brokerage.


The seller agrees to give the real estate agency (Listing Brokerage) the commission they are owed from the sale of the property.
