What does it mean?

At SafirEstate, we specialize in off-market properties. Time is crucial when dealing with property, so why waste yours searching for off-market deals when we can do all the hard work for you? All you have to do is pick up the phone.

Off-market properties are not publicly advertised for sale. They are not listed on real estate websites or traditional marketing channels. Instead, these properties are sold through private networks, word-of-mouth, or specialized real estate agents. This exclusivity can offer unique opportunities for buyers to find properties that may not be available through conventional channels. By working with SafirEstate, you can gain access to a wide range of off-market properties that suit your needs and preferences without the hassle of searching on your own.

You are eliminating the need for a real estate agent, which can represent a significant expense when selling a property.

Estate agents tend to make things more complex – essentially, they create an additional layer between the buyer and seller, whereas in a private sale, communication is usually direct.

One commonly acknowledged aspect of purchasing or selling a property off-market is that the price is usually lower than on the open market.

Buying below market value can provide a cushion against market fluctuations and economic downturns, reducing the overall risk of the investment.
