How it works?

Decide which listing package best suits your needs then follow the instructions to complete the setup process.

Once we have received your photos, payment and all signed contracts and listing forms, your home will be listed on the MLS within 48 hours. All contracts and photos must be submitted by noon on Friday. If we don't receive by noon, your listing will not go live on the MLS till the following Monday. We will email you a copy of the MLS listing for verification. Just let us know if there are any changes that you would like us to make. If there are no changes required, please respond to that email that you APPROVE.

We will email you a Showing Time link so you can download the SHOWINGTIME APP.  This app allows you accept a showing request, view previous showings, and cancel showings from your phone.  The app will also contain feedback if any was given by the showing agent.   

SHOWINGS
Agents that have buyers that want to see your home will schedule showing through Showing Time Showing Service. Showing Time with then contact Seller by voice message, text or email to schedule all showing appointments, eliminating the worry of missing phone calls from an agent. The seller will then confirm or reject the showing appointment. No showing will be completed without the sellers approval first. Buyers that do not have an agent will contact the seller directly to schedule a showing.  The seller will be required to show their own home to that potential buyer.  If you get a call from an agent wanting to show your home, please direct them to use showing time to schedule their showing.  That way you can keep track of all agents that show your home.  If a buyer finds your home on the internet and calls the us, Mink Realty forward those calls to you and you will make arrangements to show that buyer your own home.

FEEDBACK
This option will provide you with valuable feedback from each showing. Once your home has been shown, a survey is emailed to that agent. The agent then completes the survey and the results are emailed back to the seller and Mink Realty.  It can sometimes take a couple days before the showing agent will provide feedback so please be patient.

OFFERS
Offers made on Seller's property will come directly to Mink Realty, at which time the Seller will be immediately notified and the offer forwarded by email with further instructions.. Once the offer is received, the seller will either accept, reject or make counter offer. All related correspondence during the offer/counter-offer will be handled via email going back and forth with the buyer's agent and Mink Realty. Once the buyer and seller have agreed on the terms of the sales contract, the buyers agent will write up a new contract and send it to US for the seller to sign.  The seller will then print out the offer, review the terms to ensure they are what you agreed to earlier in your email coorisponance, initial the bottom of each page, sign and date stamp and sign on the last page.  In Kentucky if you are married, both parties MUST initial and sign all contracts and addendums.  It's a state law.


All negotiations will be conducted via email and phone.



HOME INSPECTIONS
A home inspection is usually ordered by the Buyer within 14 days after an offer has been accepted . Once complete, taking into consideration the inspection findings, the Buyer's Agent will send Mink Realty a "Repair Request" of items the Buyer requests to have repaired prior to closing, which will be forwarded to Seller for response. At that point the seller can either agree to make repairs or counter with what they agree to repair, if anything. Keep in mind, this all a part of the negotiations. The Buyer can "walk away" from a contract if they choose to do so up until both parties have agreed to the repair request list. Once that agreement has been signed by both parties, neither the Buyer nor the Seller can legally back out of the contract.

CLOSING
The closing usually takes place anywhere from 30-60 days from the contract date.  We have an agreement with Millennial Title that they will only charge the seller a flat fee of $295.
