If you are receiving offers from multiple companies (including cell tower companies and third party lease buyout companies) to purchase your lease, it is because your lease has been determined to be quite valuable. The question at this point becomes "How do I determine what the best offer is, and how to proceed in negotiations". As you may have already noticed, the terms of the offers can vary quite a bit, but the main things to look for are: the amount of the offer and the length of the buyout term. The length of the buyout term will affect the net present value that you would end up receiving. We also want to point out that some companies are easier to negotiate with than other companies are, but as a rule of thumb you might assume that the first offer they give you is not at all the final offer that you will receive, should you choose to negotiate.
