Most sellers want to know that the home they’re selling will end up in good hands, so it makes sense that writing a thoughtful note to accompany your purchase offer will make it stand out (and could even increase your chance of acceptance).
But what are you supposed to write?
How to Write a Letter With Your Purchase Offer
Like anything else, people want to sell their homes to other people they feel a connection with. When you write your letter, be straightforward and honest – and include important details that show why the seller should choose your offer, such as:
- The names, ages and relationships of all the people who will occupy the home
- What you do for a living and how you got there
- Some history about the home you’re leaving and how it relates to the home you want to buy
- The reasons you want to buy the home and why you love it so much
Have your agent look it over and see if there’s anything you left out (hey, making an offer is exciting, and in your haste to put together a great letter, you may have overlooked the fact that you adored the home’s garden tub or beautiful views from the backyard!).
While there’s no guarantee a seller will accept your offer, it can’t hurt to try – especially if you really love a home.
