Welcome to Mink Realty.  At last.....a smarter way to sell your home!  Our ONLINE Listing Service can save you thousands in commissions.  Now you have a choice.  Mink Realty's goal is to give the computer and internet savvy seller a way to sell their home without paying high real estate commissions if using a traditional real estate agent.   The seller assists Mink Realty in getting their home listed on the MLS by filling out the listing forms ONLINE.   Just follow the instructions on our website and it will walk you through the entire listing process.  A Mink Realty listing agent will be assigned to you and will be your point of contact during the entire process.   Mink Realty will assist the seller with offers,  negotiations of counter offers, home inspections, and repair requests.  We also coordinate the closing with the lender, title company and buyers agent to ensure a smooth and successful transaction.  Sellers are responsible for holding all open houses, however Mink Realty will advertise the open house on the MLS for free.

There are 2 listing packages to choose from (see below). The seller completes the listing paperwork online.  Once we have received all the signed listing forms, your home will be listed on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) within 48 hours.  Your home will also be listed on Realtor.com, Homes.com, Trulia, Zillow, Remax, and all the other national real estate websites.  .

There are MAJOR differences between Flat Fee Real Estate companies when it comes to the service that is provided.  Some simply list your home on the MLS and you never hear from them again.  Getting your home listed is only a small part of what it takes to get your home SOLD.  It takes dedication, responsiveness, attention to detail, excellent organization, communication and negotiating skills.    We have developed a very systematic process for getting your home listed online as well as getting you to the closing table successfully.  We  list and sell home in both Kentucky and Indiana.  Our office is located in Middletown KY.  Mink Realty does as much and sometimes more than most traditional agents do that charge 6%.   We provide tools like showing and feedback APPS, electronic signature programs, and automated selling tip emails to help educate the seller to ensure a smooth and successful transaction. 

One of the most common questions we receive is, "How do you do all of this for the small fees that you charge?"  The answer is simple.   We deal in volume.  We sell a lot of homes.  In 2016 we SOLD 45 homes.   We develop great relationships with our sellers and sometimes they use Mink Realty to help them purchase their next home in which we make a 3% commission.  Of course this does not happen on every listing.  Some sellers come to Mink Realty after they have already purchased another home.  Some sellers are moving out of the state or just have other plans.  There is no obligation to use Mink Realty in the purchase of their next home but if they do we will give the buyer back 10% of our commission on sales over $150,000.  So, that is how we can do what we do and still save both the buyer & seller a LOT of money.

Mink Realty has an excellent reputation in the real estate community.  We SELL home and not just LIST them.  There is a lot involved in selling a home after it is listed on the MLS.  Once the showings start and the offers start coming in, there is a lot more work that has to be done.  Most sellers don't think about that.   Once your home is sold I feel strongly that you will feel what we charge is well worth it.  Especially with the money that Mink Realty saved you.
