(section 475.25 (1)) (r), Florida Statute) In an open listing agreement, the realtor (who works through his agents) can entice potential buyers to check your property, and if that potential buyer concludes the agreement at the end, that broker receives a commission for the search for that buyer. The Florida seller can sign as many open listing agreements with as many different real estate agents as he or she decides to execute. A licensee can sell a mobile home and the land on which the mobile home is located without the license of a mobile home seller. If the seller does not own the land, it is likely that the real estate agent should first obtain a mobile distributor license from the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV).
