Questionable Real Estate License Exam Question #1

Real Estate Agent with Resident Realty FA.100079118

So my wife, Laura, is going through her online real estate licensing course and she has had quite a few issues with the wording of some of her quiz and test questions. I thought I would share some of them with the ActiveRain community and see what your thoughts are.

This particular question just seems to be poorly written and a bit confusing:


A listing agreement is a legal

  1. contract between the seller or buyer and a broker that establishes their agency relationship.
  2. sales contract.
  3. assignment agreement.
  4. document that states the terms of the mortgage.


Let me know your thoughts. Do you have any issue with the available answers?

#1. is the obvious answer.  Kevin Ray 2) A listing Agreement is never a sales contract. 3) it's not applicable that a Listing Agreement gets assigned.

4) A listing is not a mortgage. Teachers like to word a question so that it may appear tricky.

Kevin - referring to you answer to Bruce Hicks , that was my first thought as well. The listing agreement doesn't mention buyers.

I honestly wouldn't know how to answer that - but you're also in Colorado so there are always difference in the way terms are used.
