Of course, it is customary to keep an agency contract signed before a property is marketed for sale. In Australia, agents spread fud (fear of insecurity and doubt) in the minds of suppliers to achieve freedom of movement by forcing suppliers to sign exclusive agency contracts. In other countries, I have lived and owned property to get an exclusive agency contract that real estate agents have to pay, either by paying the full marketing themselves or by reducing the commission. If, as a supplier, you outsource a non-exclusive agency, you will not get any benefit. If you decide to terminate the contract during the reflection period (or to “resign”), you must send a “declaration of resignation” to the agent.
