How to write an offer letter
North Texas Real Estate Tips
Writing the ideal offer letter can make all the difference in getting the home you want. This can be especially true when the location and the property has generated a lot of interest. Attaching an offer letter to your proposal can help you stand out from the crowd and get the seller to choose your offer over others. In today’s housing markets, including an offer letter is almost a mandatory step to buying the home you want. If you are not sure how to handle this letter, here’s a few tips below.
Here is how …
Don’t be afraid to express yourself and tell the seller just what makes their home so important to you. Being able to communicate your emotions in important because you want your seller to believe that their home is vital to you. This is one factor that goes beyond the financial aspects to selling their home. Any seller worth their weight wants their old home to go to a good owner. Use emotions to craft your story to your seller and help them see why their home is the one for you.
This can involve telling a story about your family or sharing about things your family will do in the new home. You can also share your emotions during the visit or talk about how your children love the new house. Being able to share your emotions honestly and openly can help you land the home you want.
2. Flattery gets you everywhere
It’s also nice to tell your seller just what makes the home so perfect for you. Don’t be afraid to flatter them with compliments about what you love about the house, and what connects with you. Noticing aspects that look new or recent upgrades can really make the seller feel as though you appreciate their hard work. Just as a buyer wants to love your new home, a seller wants the new residents to appreciate new upgrades.
3. Connection is everything
Craft your offer letter to create the connection you need to your seller. Look around the home to see what aspects and creative touches you may share with the seller. If they have pets or upgrades to the home that accommodate their pets, be sure to compliment and share. When your seller feels a special connection to your family, they are more likely to pick out your offer letter.
4. Be professional
While it’s a good idea to be emotional and share, don’t use this time to whine or complain. Nobody wants to hear bad news or a sob story about your previous home. You want your seller to feel good and know that you are capable of handling the transaction securely.
Much like a resume your offer letter should be written well and read through to ensure accuracy. Nobody wants to read poorly written letters or an offer letter with bad spelling. It can make you seem unprofessional and as though you don’t care to take the time and write your offer letter properly.
