open listing

An offer by a property owner to pay a commission to any real estate broker who brings a buyer to the closing table.Rather than pay a 7 percent commission to a listing broker, with the listing broker then splitting that commission with the broker who provides the buyer, an open listing will agree to pay the entire 7 percent to any broker who brings the buyer.
