Step 5). Listing Your Property For Sale

In order to put your house on the market for sale, legal documentation will come into play.
The most important of these is the listing agreement, which is the contract between you and and my brookerage firm, RE/MAX associates.

The second major form will be the MLS Data Input form for entering information about your property onto the Multiple Listing Service (Realtor.ca).

Listing Contract:

Provides a framework for subsequent forms and negotiations:

Clearly spelling out the rights and obligations of all parties, the length of the agreement, and the compensation (Commission rate)

* Sets the Listing Price

* Sets the Listing Date

* Sets the Expiry Date

MLS DATA Input Form
* Accurately describes your property (including lot size, building size, style and materials, floor areas, heating/cooling systems, room sizes and description).

* Details what is, and what is not, included in the sale (as a general rule, fixtures are included; chattels (things that are movable, are not), list what stays and what goes under inclusions and exclusions.

* Provides information about annual property taxes, and notes any easements, right of way or encroachments against the property. 

Fintrac Forms

These forms are indentification forms that are required by federal law to be completed by every seller and buyer in a real estate transaction.

Fintrac stands for Financial Transaction and Report Analysis Centre of Canada.
It is an independant agency reporting to the Minister of Finance and Fintrac's mandate is to facilitate the detection, prevention and deterrence of money laundering and terrorist activity financing, while ensuring the protection of personal information.

Receipt of Funds Form
This form is required by the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act for every amount of funds received in the course of a single real estate transaction.

Other Forms
In addition to those two forms, there are other forms so that your preferences about showings, offer dates and the like are spelled out in writing.

These documents are binding for noth of us, so we'll go over them carefully before you sign anything. And of course you will receive copies of all  signed documents for your records.
