Final Thoughts Whether you are selling an exclusive or non-exclusive authority, the very first question you need to ask yourself as a seller is that, how fast do you want to sell your property?

The commission or agent fees are negotiable. You can negotiate a “no sale, no fee” contract, i.e. you don`t have to pay commissions or expenses unless the broker sells the property.
