Key Factors of Procuring Cause

A common misconception is that the party who first showed a property to the purchaser is automatically entitled to the commission. This is not the case.

Similarly, writing the successful offer to purchase is not the sole deciding factor of procuring cause.

The fact that a REALTOR® had a buyer agency agreement with the purchaser does not automatically entitle that REALTOR® to the commission.
