What happens if I don't offer a SOC (Selling Office Commission)?

As part of the changes, NWMLS will revise its listing agreement form to remind sellers that Washington law says that buyers’ brokers and agents are not required to show property for which there is no written agreement to pay compensation to the buyer’s broker. Asked why this was being added, NWMLS said, “When listing their home for sale, sellers in Washington state need to be aware of the legal consequences of not offering a SOC.”
