For our Limited Service SILVER MLS Listing Plan we provide you with a MLS listing on the local REALTOR® MLS and all the other national real estate websites. We also provide you with our yard sign and a lock box for a fee of $20.00. You will need to pick up the sign from our office or pay a delivery and installation fee of $100. You must agree to return our sign and lock box once your home has sold. You may also choose to have your sign shipped to you for a fee of $20.00 however that does not include the frame. A frame can be purchased at Home Depot for around $16.00. The silver package basically is for advertisement only. It does not include assistance with offers, or negotiating on your behalf or assistance with the home inspection or repair request. If you choose the silver package and then decide once you receive an offer and would like our assistance, you can upgrade to the gold package for a fee of $1,000 paid online and zero at closing.
Once we receive an offer on your home we will immediately forward the offer to you via email with instructions on how to work the offer. We will also send you a seller agency form that you must sign and return. Once you decide how you want to respond you will email the buyer's agent and copy us your response (rejection or counter offer). Once all negotiations have been completed and both parties have agreed to the terms in the contract, you will then print out the offer and sign. With this plan you MUST have a printer that has scan capability so you can print out the offer, scan your signed response and email it back to us. If you DO NOT have a printer or scan capability you need to select the Electronic Signing Option for an addition $200 or select our Platinum MLS listing plan that includes the electronic signing program. The repair request will be handled in the same manor. If you have general questions feel free to email, text or call us. With this package it is the sellers responsibility to meet all contractual obligations and time frames set fourth in the accepted purchase contract on your own.
We are required by your local MLS to mark your home PENDING within 24 hours of an accepted contract. You will need to work with the Buyers agent and the title company for the closing. You must agree to send us a copy of the closing statement within 24 hours after closing. If you are not comfortable handling all the aspects of the real estate transaction such as understanding the offer, contingencies, first right of refusal and how these work and all other aspects of the purchase contract, I would suggest you choose our Gold or Platinum Plans. However if you choose this plan and then later realize you do need our assistance, you can upgrade at anytime.
With the Silver package you will owe the buyers agent a commission of 2.5% -3% (whichever you chose) and pay ZERO to Mink Realty at closing. However ,you are responsible for showing your home to buyers that do not have an agent. If there is no other agent involved, you will owe ZERO commission at closing. For an additional fee, Mink Realty can write up the offer as long as all the terms have been agreed upon for a flat fee of $500. If the seller would like full representation and have Mink Realty assist with negotiations between the buyer and seller, write up the offer on agreed terms, assist with home inspections, and repair requests and get you to the closing table for a flat fee of $1,500.
