Regardless of whether or not you’re in a bidding war, it’s often a nice idea to accompany your offer with a personal letter to the sellers.
Why? Selling a home can be an emotional experience, and many homeowners appreciate knowing that their old home will be well taken care of by a new loving family. It’s especially important to consider writing a letter if you’re in a bidding war or if your offer is on the low side. After all, it’s free and easy!
While we’ve seen all sorts of notes, we typically recommend including a little bit about yourself and/or your family (perhaps hobbies, or where you’ll be moving from) and what you love about their home. Let them know what stood out to you, or how much you appreciate their hard work in maintaining the home. It’s always a great idea to include pictures, maybe of your family or of a project or two that you’ve completed at your past home. Photos of your current home may help to show the sellers that you will take pride of your new home, too!
Your EveryHome agent is more than happy to deliver this letter to the sellers when submitting an offer, and we’re always happy to help answer any questions you may have about the purchase process!
