So... a friend wants to buy her ppor on a particular street, where there are about 10 properties that match her interests. She was talking about hiring a buyer's agent to target these properties. She's willing to pay a bit (50-100k) over market value. Are there actually buyers' agents who do this? I've received letters (ie "I'd like to buy your property") in the past, which I ignored; I'm assuming buyers' agents would just do something similar? Curious because the husband and I might be looking to get a new ppor down the line... do letter drops work? If so, do you provide your email, and phone number, and just cross your fingers?
