to Mink Realty. At last.....a smarter way to sell your home! We can save you thousands in commissions. Now you
have a choice. Mink Realty's goal is to give the seller a way to sell their home without paying high real estate
commissions like most agents charge.
We have 2 listing packages to choose from that you pay ZERO up front. The FULL SERVICE MLS listing package is just that. We come to your home and help you decide on your list price, take photos of your home, install the Mink Realty yard sign and provide a combo lock box. You can upgrade to the electronic SUPRA lock box for $75 if you wish. We also hold 1 open house during the first 2 weeks of your listing. When your home sells you owe a 4% commission. 3% commission goes to the buyers agent and 1% goes to Mink Realty. If WE sell your home without another agent that you only owe Mink Realty a 3 1/2% commission (saving you even more).
We also offer our ONLINE Flat Fee MLS listing package at ZERO up front. The seller
completes the listing paperwork online. Just follow the instructions on our website and it will walk you through the entire listing process. They seller decides on their listing price, provide their own photos and upload them to our website. The seller is responsible for holding their own open house, however we will advertise it on the MLS. When your home sells you owe a 3% commission that goes to the buyers agent plus a flat fee of $2,000 to Mink Realty. If WE sell your home without another agent that you only owe Mink Realty a 3% commission (saving you even more).
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 with either package.
With either package you choose 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.
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. We don't get paid until your home sells! 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 homes in both Kentucky and Indiana. Our
office is located in Middletown KY. Mink Realty does as much and sometimes more
than most traditional agents 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
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. Mink Realty listed 56 home this year and we have sold 49 of our listings in 2017. 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 $200,000. 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 homes 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.
