I'm helping someone sell their home. What do I need to know about the MLS listing?
To sign our listing agreement, you must have an executed Power of Attorney (POA) from the owner which grants you authority to sell the property (a signed listing agreement does not work). If you do not have the POA, you can instead add the owner in the "seller" role on the website so they sign our listing agreement instead. You would add yourself in the "agent or admin" role and will still be able to complete most of the forms and receive email updates. You can still handle the negotiations and paperwork for the owner.
Many MLSs prohibit having an agent who is not a member of the MLS as the point of contact. Instead you can have the offers go to the owner and they can forward to you.
