What is a mandat de vente simple in French real estate?

Hot new French real estate

A non exclusive listing for a property in French real estate marketing is called a ‘mandat de vente simple’ or a ‘mandat de vente sans exclusivite’.

The mandat de vente simple is a listing contract between an owner and an agency in which the agency does not have the sole right to market the property. The French property owner typically gives more non-exclusive ‘mandate de vente simple’s to other agencies who all at the same time can be marketing the property. This is why you see perhaps a property online for sale with multiple agencies.
