Open listing example

Seller Martinez wants to use multiple listings agent to help sell his house, but Martinez does not want to pay the agent a commission if he is able to find a buyer on his own.  What type of listing agreement is best suited to Seller Martinez:

  1.  exclusive authorization and right to sell
  2.  exclusive agency
  3.  open listing
  4.  net listing

The answer is C – because Martinez wants to use multiple agents, but also wants to reserve the right to find a buyer on his own and not pay a commission to the agent – the open listing is best suited to him.
