Buying a home is probably the most important purchase you will ever make…Do you want to handle it alone?

The true value of an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent…

Optima Properties can help you see “the whole picture” when buying your home by providing sound advice, assistance in setting your offering price, structuring terms, and most importantly giving you peace of mind.

buyers_guideFACT: 81% of homebuyers, surveyed in a recent Gallup Poll for the National Association of Realtors, said they would use an exclusive buyer’s agent next time they purchased.

  • An Exclusive Buyer’s Agent will share valuable and essential information with you, if known, such as:
  • The seller’s reason for selling and timetable
  • Length of time the home has been on the market
  • Previous offers and counter offers for the property
  • Strengths and weaknesses of the property
  • Determining an offer price based on past comparable sales
  • Locating suitable property not currently on the market
  • Negotiating on your behalf

You owe it to yourself to be the most knowledgeable buyer you can be. You can ask an exclusive  buyer’s agent for advice and assistance in setting your offering price and structuring the other terms of your offer. What’s more, you’ll have peace of mind knowing an advocate is working on your behalf to help you buy at the best possible terms.

An Exclusive  Buyer’s Agent’s goal is to help you buy the home you want and buy it at the right price.
