EXCLUSIVE AGENCY LISTING AGREEMENT

This Exclusive Agency Listing Agreement (the “Agreement”) is entered into by and between The Flat Rate Group, Inc., a Utah corporation, dba Flat Rate Homes (hereinafter referred to as the “Brokerage”) and Owners Names (hereinafter referred to as the “Seller”) (together the “Parties”, or individually a “Party”) (the Effective Date and Seller(s) information to be imported into this Agreement from the Listing Intake Form) for the provision of brokerage services related to the selling and/or marketing of real estate in the State of Utah. This Agreement is effective as of the first date this listing is published on the website of the Brokerage and/or the Local MLS (the “Effective Date”).

1. SCOPE OF AGREEMENT. This Agreement applies to all Brokerage services ordered by Seller, whether part of a Brokerage plan (“Flat Rate Listing”) or in the form of additional services which have been selected by Seller. This Agreement shall also apply to each and every listing Seller places with the Brokerage, regardless of the number of such listings, whether ordered at one time or separately. The Listing Intake Form(s) which Seller fills out and supplies to the Brokerage, including the information contained therein, is hereby incorporated and made part of this Agreement by reference.

2. TERM. Seller hereby grants to the Brokerage, including its principal broker (“Principal Broker”), which is the authorized agent of the Brokerage, and all other associated brokers/agents that may be affiliated with the Brokerage from time to time, the exclusive right to list and sell the property mentioned above (“Listed Property”) and to provide real estate broker services, either on a month to month basis or for the annual listing period (either or both of the listing periods to be referred to herein as the listing “Term”), depending on the Brokerage plan selected by Seller for the listed property. The listing term begins on the Effective Date of this Agreement and will automatically renew until canceled by seller.

3. BROKERAGE FEE. The brokerage fee (“Brokerage Fee”) shall be the flat fee stated for the Brokerage plan selected on the Brokerage website (hereinafter the “Basic Listing Fee”). Additional Services shall be offered to Seller from the Brokerage for an additional fee (all fees for additional services together to be referred to herein as the “Additional Services Fees”). The combination of the Basic Listing Fee and the Additional Services Fees shall comprise the total listing fee (“Total Listing Fee”) charged by the Brokerage.

Seller hereby offers the amount of money, or the percentage of the total sales price, listed in the Listing Intake Form (hereinafter the “Commission”), as compensation to the buyer’s broker/agent (“Buyer’s Agent”) who brings a ready willing and able buyer, who does close on the property (“Buyer”), to Seller, for the Listed Property, in accordance with the terms of the listing as it is placed on the appropriate Multiple Listing Service (“MLS”) for the Listed Property, or other terms negotiated between the buyer and Seller. The Base Listing Fee shall be considered earned when the listing is placed on the MLS. Additional Services Fees shall be considered earned once the service has been performed or the item purchased has been provided. The Buyer’s Agent’s Commission shall be considered due and payable once the broker/agent produces a ready, willing and able buyer who actually closes on the purchase of the property, or upon such event as qualifies for the earning of the Commission based on Utah law or the rules and regulations of either the local Association of Realtors or the MLS which operates in the area where the Listed Property is located.

4. CHANGES. Changes and corrections may be made to the listing price and other information provided by Seller to the Brokerage for inclusion on the MLS listing. Seller must complete Changes and Corrections through their online listing account or by sending a written request to support@flatratehomes.com via email. Seller acknowledges and agrees that once the “Commission” offered to the buyer’s agent, as outlined in section 3 of this agreement is published to the MLS, the commission cannot be lowered. If lowered, Seller shall still be responsible for the previously offered higher commission if the buyer’s agent, which closes the property, requires it. Seller acknowledges and agrees that the Brokerage may take up to 24 hours from the start of the business day following the date of submission of the changes to update the changes online.

5. PAUSES TO SERVICE. Seller agrees and acknowledges that it has the right to pause its listing. However, Seller’s decision to order a pause in provision of the services that have been ordered from the Brokerage, such as listing the Listed Property for sale on the MLS or other online forums, or the placing of “For Sale” signs and conducting showings of the Listed Property, shall not pause the Term of the listing, which shall continue to run. No refunds shall be given for time lost due to a pause being ordered by the Seller.

6. SCOPE OF WORK AND RESPONSIBILITY OF SELLER. The scope of the work (“Scope”) which the Brokerage undertakes for Seller shall be the total of all services which the Seller orders from the Brokerage and which are outlined in each plan. No other services shall be due to Seller from the Brokerage. If Seller chooses to purchase only a Basic or standard Listing plan, Seller acknowledges that they shall not have the right to expect Services offered in the Luxury Plan, other service plans, or any other services offered which are not outlined in the plan selected by the seller. Seller shall be responsible for all other services which are not outlined in their selected plan. This includes, but is not limited to, open houses, the placement of signs on the property, additional marketing services, arranging showings with buyers or Buyer’s Agents etc. Buyer Agent’s shall also be instructed to contact the Seller directly to arrange showings of the Listed Property unless otherwise instructed by seller. The Brokerage shall only assist Seller with the products and services within the Scope of the plan selected by the seller. Any services preformed outside the scope of the seller’s chosen plan shall be subject to additional fees.

7. PROTECTION PERIOD. In the event that a buyer who was represented by the Buyer’s Agent and shown the Listed Property during the Term of the listing returns and closes on the purchase of the Listed Property within three (3) months of the expiration of the listing Term, Seller agrees to deposit with the Brokerage the Commissions for payment to the Buyer’s Agent and the Brokerage.

8. SELLER WARRANTIES. Seller warrants to the Brokerage that the natural person(s) or legal entity listed in the Seller Information is/are all of the record owner(s) of the Listed Property it is listing with the Brokerage, that Seller owns good and marketable title to the Listed Property and has the full legal right to list and sell the Listed Property. Seller agrees and warrants that ALL of the record owners of the Listed Property have agreed to the listing of the Listed Property for sale with the Brokerage, and that the signature of EACH record owner, or necessary company officer, has been electronically affixed to this Agreement on behalf of the record owner(s). Seller further warrants that none of the electronic signatures have been entered by a party that is not the specific record owner(s) or officer(s) whose name is listed. Seller further warrants that the Listed Property is not the subject of any claims or litigation, nor will the outcome of any pending claims or litigation change the ownership of the Listed Property or interfere with Sellers right to list and sell the same. Seller agrees to provide buyer with marketable title upon closing, and to pay, at closing, for a standard coverage owner’s policy of title insurance in the amount of the purchase price.

In the event that Seller is not the record owner of the Listed Property, Seller warrants that it has a power of attorney from the record owner that is either a general power of attorney or a limited power of attorney that specifically authorizes Seller the right to list and sell the Listed Property, and all other necessary legal rights to sell the property and otherwise enter into this Agreement. Seller agrees to notify Brokerage if it is selling the Listed Property under a power of attorney as described above and to provide a copy of the document evidencing a power of attorney to the Brokerage for its review. Seller agrees to indemnify and hold the Brokerage harmless from all suits, causes of action or any other legal proceedings due to Seller listing a property for sale with the Brokerage which Seller was not legally authorized to sell.

9. SELLER DISCLOSURES. Once Seller receives a written offer for the purchase of the Listed Property, Seller agrees to fully inform the Brokerage concerning Seller’s knowledge of the condition of the Listed Property, including the presence of mold or lead based paint, and to complete a Seller’s Property Condition Disclosure form. Seller acknowledges that it understands that Seller has a superior knowledge of the condition of the Listed Property and that the representations made in the Seller’s Property Condition Disclosure are the sole responsibility of the Seller, and Seller assumes full responsibility for the accuracy of such statements and any adverse effects that inaccurate information may have on a buyer. In the event that any of the disclosures of Seller to the Brokerage regarding the condition of the Listed Property, whether made on the Seller’s Property Condition Disclosure form, or otherwise, turn out to be incorrect, inaccurate, false or misleading, or in the event that any form of legal or administrative action is brought against the Brokerage, its Principal Broker, or any of the brokers/agents affiliated with the Brokerage, due to inaccurate or misleading information being contained in the Seller’s Property Condition Disclosure, Seller shall indemnify the Brokerage, the Principal Broker and the other brokers and agents affiliated with the Brokerage, against all suits, administrative proceedings, causes of action and legal proceedings of any kind, including paying for the costs of representation at hearings or at court during trial and appellate proceedings, including paying a reasonable attorneys’ fee, to the Brokerage, or paying such costs on behalf of the Brokerage.

10. RELATIONSHIP OF THE PARTIES. It is understood and agreed that an agency relationship is created by this Agreement between the Brokerage and the Seller. Seller hereby designates the Brokerage, its Principal Broker and any brokers or agents affiliated with the Brokerage, as its agents to assist it in selling the Listed Property, limited by the Scope of the services Seller has chosen to purchase from the Brokerage. Seller hereby discloses and affirms that it does not have currently, and will not enter into, an agency relationship or listing agreement with any other real estate brokerage or agent for selling the Listed Property during the Term of the listing. The Parties acknowledge that the Principal Broker and other real estate brokers/agents who are affiliated with the Brokerage shall owe fiduciary duties to the Seller. Seller understands that the Brokerage is now, or may in the future, become the broker for a buyer who wants to purchase Seller’s property. If this situation arises, Seller agrees that the Brokerage may act as a limited agent. Seller acknowledges that as a limited agent, the fiduciary duties owed to Seller, which include loyalty, obedience to lawful instructions, full disclosure, confidentiality, reasonable care and diligence, and the duty to hold safe any money or property of the Seller in the Brokerages possession, shall be limited so as to allow the Brokerage to represent both the buyer and Seller. The above stated fiduciary duties shall be limited in the following ways: Seller shall no longer have the right to undivided loyalty, absolute confidentiality or full disclosure. This shall mean that the Brokerage shall become obligated to be neutral between the parties, advancing the interests of each Party, and shall not disclose to either Party information which the Brokerage comes into possession of which may negatively impact the other Party during negotiations, such as the lowest price Seller would accept, or the highest price buyer is willing to pay. Limited agency will not eliminate the Brokerage’s responsibility to disclose the information in the Seller’s Property Condition Disclosure or other material information concerning the condition of the property (material information shall include things that have an effect on the health or safety of the buyer should they purchase the property, such as the presence of mold or lead paint). Nor will limited agency limit Seller’s obligation to be truthful in its disclosures. All other fiduciary duties shall remain in effect. SELLER IS HEREBY ADVISED THAT NEITHER SELLER NOR BUYERS ARE LEGALLY REQUIRED TO ACCEPT A LIMITED AGENCY ON THE PART OF THE BROKERAGE AND THAT EACH HAS THE RIGHT TO BE REPRESENTED BY A SEPARATE AGENT. Additionally, before a limited agency relationship may commence, both Seller and buyer must agree to the limited agency in writing. Seller, by checking the boxes at the end of this Agreement, agrees to accept limited agency and this Agreement shall constitute written acceptance by Seller of the limited agency described herein, including the waiver by Seller of its rights to undivided loyalty, absolute confidentiality and full disclosure.

The Parties further agree and acknowledge that nothing in this Agreement shall create an employment relationship between the Seller and the brokers/agents associated with the Brokerage but that the brokers/agents of the Brokerage are independent contractors, affiliated with the Brokerage. Consequently, Seller shall only be liable for the Brokerage Fee outlined above and shall not be liable for providing any other benefits or payments normally associated with employment.

It is understood by the Parties that the Brokerage is a corporation formed according to the laws of the State of Utah and that all selling is done under the direction of the Brokerage’s Principal Broker. It is further understood that if the Principal Broker should become deceased or cease its affiliation with the Brokerage for any reason that the Brokerage shall contract for the services of another principal broker immediately, and that this listing shall remain in full force and effect as long as the Brokerage is affiliated with a principal broker. In the event that the Brokerage is unable to obtain the services of a replacement principal broker immediately, Seller shall be notified and this listing shall terminate in accordance with applicable law. If termination of the listing shall occur as described above, Seller shall receive the return of the Basic Listing fee prorated for the number of days that the listing was valid and the Brokerage maintained an active Principal Broker. All other Additional Services Fees shall be retained or refunded depending on whether the value of the service or item purchased has been received.

11. LIMITATIONS ON SELLER. Seller hereby acknowledges and agrees that during the Term of the listing, and while the listing is online, the Brokerage is required to place the contact information for its Principal Broker and/or other brokers/agents on the Multiple Listing Service to be contacted by brokers/agents that represent potential buyers. Seller further acknowledges and agrees that during the Term of the listing Seller may not place any “For Sale by Owner” signs anywhere on the Listed Property where they may be viewed by the public, including yard signs and in windows. Only signs provided by the Brokerage may be displayed on the Listed Property during the Term of the listing.

12. ADVICE. The Brokerage and its brokers, agents and employees specifically strive to provide professional advice with regard to the sale and listing of real estate. However, while the brokers and agents associated with the Brokerage are trained and licensed in real estate, they are not trained or licensed attorneys or accountants and do not provide legal or tax advice. None of the statements or advice given to Seller by the Principal Broker, other brokers or agents, or any of the officers or employees of the Brokerage is, or should be construed to be, legal or tax advice, and Seller acknowledges that it may not rely on any advice it receives for those purposes.

13. SELLER AUTHORIZATION. Seller hereby grants to the Brokerage the right to do the following:

  • To list for sale the Listed Property both on any MLS on which the Brokerage places listings and to advertise the property for sale on the internet generally.
  • To disclose to the MLS any of Seller’s information required to be disclosed to list the Listed Property on the MLS, whether or not such information is deemed by Seller to be private.
  • To discuss with potential buyers, or buyer’s agents, the sale of the home and to receive and relay offers to the Seller, as well as to hold out to the public that the Brokerage and/or the Principal Broker have a listing on the Listed Property.
  • Hold keys to the Listed Property and to enter at such times as the Seller has stated are times that the Listed Property is available for showing.
  • To disclose to the MLS the terms of the sale upon closing.
  • To communicate with the Seller to offer for sale additional products or services related to the sale of real estate and to use the information on the Listing Intake Form for that purpose.
  • To place Brokerage “For Sale” signs in the yard or windows of the Listed Property.
  • To install a key box or other device which assists the Brokerage in granting access to the Listed Property to other non-Brokerage affiliated real estate agents who may, or may not, be members of the MLS or Utah Association of Realtors.
  • To hold open houses to assist in showing and selling the Listed Property
  • To hold in the Principal Broker’s trust account Earnest Monies that may be deposited with the Principal Broker before the closing of the sale of the Listed Property. Any Earnest Money may be deposited in an interest bearing trust account and the interest may be paid to the Utah Order of Home Warranty Plan.
  • Order a Preliminary Title Report on the Listed Property.
  • Order a Home Warranty Plan.

Nothing in this section above shall obligate the Brokerage to provide services outside the Scope of the service purchased by the Seller. If Seller desires to restrict the Brokerage from engaging in one of the activities above Seller must notify the Brokerage in writing of such election. The Brokerage may then determine whether or not the services which Seller has purchased are still available or whether to restrict the services which are available to Seller for purchase.

14. PERSONAL PROPERTY. While the Brokerage will make commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard the personal property of the Seller that remains in the Listed Property when the Listed Property is shown by representatives of the Brokerage, Seller acknowledges that it is solely responsible for the personal property and valuables it leaves in the Listed Property during any showing by the Brokerage or another party. Seller further acknowledges that if a key box is installed, showings may be conducted by brokers/agents that are not affiliated with the Brokerage, but represent buyers. Seller agrees to hold the Brokerage harmless for any lost, stolen, or damaged personal property which is left in the Listed Property during showings.

15. FAIR HOUSING COMPLIANCE. The Parties expressly agree to comply with all Federal, State or local laws, rules, regulations or ordinances related to fair housing (“Fair Housing Laws”). The Brokerage hereby expressly refuses to participate in the violation of any Fair Housing Laws and retains the right to cancel this Agreement if Seller either fails to comply with said Fair Housing Laws or encourages the Brokerage, its Principal Broker or its other brokers or agents to do so. Seller agrees to indemnify and hold the Brokerage harmless from all suits, regulatory action or legal actions of any kind brought against the Brokerage, Principal Broker, or other brokers/agents affiliated with the Brokerage due to the breach of said Fair Housing Laws by Seller. Seller further agrees to pay for all attorneys’ fees and costs associated with any defense the Brokerage feels is necessary due to Seller’s breach of the Fair Housing Laws.

16. REFUND POLICY. Seller acknowledges and agrees that refunds shall not be issued for any unused services or products, who have been presented an offer, who have accepted an offer, or who have a property listed above the suggested market value found in the sellers free market analysis, also known as a CMA report, and who therefore are aware of the nature and quality of the services provided by Brokerage. All refunds will be adjusted to account for actual out of pocket payments, coupons, promotions or other discounts that may have been received by the Seller. No one may receive more back from the Brokerage than they originally paid for the services. No prorated refunds shall be calculated based on partial months or years. Listing(’s) will not be terminated and no refunds shall be given until yard signs, frames, leased keybox(‘s), and any other leased items are returned to the Brokerage, or its representatives.

If this Agreement is terminated by the Seller, termination shall be effective upon receipt of either, 1) written notice delivered via email or 2) written noticed mailed through the United States Postal Service. Seller agrees and acknowledges that this agreement cannot be terminated if the listed property is currently under contract or is still negotiating with a presented offer.

These services include, but are not limited to, plan upgrades, photography services, staging services, digital services, custom design work, additional/custom signage, additional marketing services, printing and publication services and any other services provided which are outside the scope of the seller’s chosen plan.
