Stealth Real Estate Services
When using Stealth Real Estate Services, a real estate prospect uses a realtor to secure, or act, on property information that is otherwise not available to the market, for strategic benefit. Such actions are taken confidentiality and are credible when executed by an experienced real estate professional. The actions typically lead to the use of one-time buying and showing contracts, followed up by executable purchase agreement.
Examples of Stealth Services:
- A buyer defined a specific town-home development she wanted to live in. No units were on the market. She used stealth services to execute a private transaction in the development and purchase a unit to her liking. Other buyers have used similar techniques to identify lake, acreage properties, and land.
- A retired farmer was approached by multiple neighbors stating that, should he ever have interest in selling his land, they were ready to buy. His concern was how to represent the property fairly to his neighbors, honoring buyer interest, but also preventing hard feelings from the non-purchasing parties. He employed a stealth strategy.
- A divorcing couple wanted to keep their separation private. They used stealth services to sell their residence which prevented personal information from becoming gossip to their community, family, and friends.
- A land owner wanted to know if a specific buyer had interest in purchasing his property. He feared that if he reached out with an intention to sell directly, the responding offer would be low. The seller used stealth services to determine buyer interest and potential purchase price.
