Home Sale Timeline
While managing the entire process and ensuring client satisfaction, Mini works with her in-house team members to handle the myriad details involved with selling your home.
Home EvaluationIn the first step, Mini and her team of professionals visit your home to determine what work needs to be done.
Your personal Project Manager will provide you with a comprehensive proposal – complete with detailed bids from our trusted vendors, the best in the industry – for your approval or modification before any work begins. A "Mini Makeover" can bring amazing results to a seller. Mini is an expert at knowing which upgrades will bring you the most return on investment.
Home Prep & Free Staging
The home preparation’s goal is to increase the value of your home and to make the sale go as smoothly as possible for you.
A home that has been properly and professionally prepared creates a domino effect leading to a successful transaction. Mini and her team manage the home prep work for you, but rest assured that you will know what is happening, when it is happening, and who is working on your home.
After the updates and fixes are completed, we bring in top-notch stagers to complete the transformation and create an atmosphere that will appeal to the market’s current buyer demographic. The finished "Mini Makeover" will attract the qualified buyers in this competitive market and truly showcase your home.

Marketing and promotion are extremely important for a successful sale. Our main marketing goal is simple - to get buyers into your home to make a decision. The high-quality and creative marketing campaign Mini develops for each property has a goal to maximize your exposure to the right buyers locally and abroad. We accomplish this goal through expertise in online and print media, cutting edge social media and traditional marketing methods. The final results are huge exposure to the best buyers, more qualified showings, and more offers on your home.
Correctly pricing a home plays a huge part in getting the highest price possible and is one of our key distinctions. Pricing strategies vary enormously with market conditions. A well-priced home attracts the most buyers, as price is the single largest factor in a prospective buyer’s decision to make an offer. When pricing a home, Mini factors in similar nearby homes that are currently for sale, the number of active buyers looking in the area, the time of the year, local economic indicators, and the state of the financial markets to make sure we attract as many offers as possible and never leave money on the table.
On The MarketAs soon as your home is prepared and listed on the market, Mini will coordinate all showings of your property to buyers and their brokers.
Mini and her team follow up to give you up-to-date feedback from the showings to help you understand how your home is positioned in the market.
ShowingsThe showing period is one of the most important phases of the sale.
We want as many potential buyers as possible to visit your home, spend time there, and come to us with any and all questions. Because our properties are exceptionally prepared, we also want to be sure that buyers have the greatest opportunity to tour your home. We use an online scheduling calendar to make it simple for buyers and agents to see your home. Once the county allows open houses again, we have extended open house hours for the first weekend with refreshments and have our team on hand all day to answer questions and provide information. We often have a lender on site as well to answer questions from prospective buyers.
Escrow & Final Sale
Our fiduciary responsibility to you extends all the way through escrow and final transfer of funds. Our aim is to make this legal step as easy and simple for you as possible. Our in-house escrow team meticulously handles all the legal and financial details of the transactions with you, including working with a title company, creating all the forms correctly with online signatures, and ensuring proper county registration of all documents. If needed, Mini pays for consulting assistance from an Attorney and Accountant who are on retainer to answer questions that will assist in the successful close of your sale.
