Making an offer on a property is a big decision and can come with some stress if it is a home in a hot property market with potential buyers bidding against each other. OR it’s listed above your price range!
One of the methods to tip the odds in your favor, without increasing your offer, is a letter to the seller.
What is a Letter to the Seller?
A letter to the seller is an offer letter to the seller of the home written by the buyer.
Buyers use this tactic often to win over the owner of a home.
When you send a letter to the seller, you give the buyer the opportunity to connect on a personal level, appeal to the seller's emotions, and establish an affiliation with each other.
Key Things Essential For An Effective Letter:
Example of a Letter:
(Start With Compliments)
My husband and I had the privilege of walking through your house the other day and were very impressed! The way the full front porch overlooks your budding rosebushes brought us back to the house my husband lived in when we first met as kids.
As we continued to tour your house, it began to feel even more familiar - just like home. Every detail is perfect: from the wide staircase to the little nook in the kid's bedroom. It's clear from the swing in the yard and the pictures on the wall that many happy memories happened here.
A little about us: Tom and I met in the third grade and have been best friends ever since. We attended separate colleges, but would always spend school breaks at his grandparent's home, which looks very similar to yours! We've been married 13 years and have four children.
After touring the home ourselves, we immediately brought our kids here to see if this was the place. They were instantly smitten.
If you choose to accept our offer, please know that the home will be well cared for and loved. We are excited to raise our children in a place so filled with memories.
Thank you for taking the time to consider us.
Tom and Kate Williams
