Want to write an offer letter to your seller but don’t know what to say? These templates can help. Most sellers want top dollar and a quick sale on their home. But here’s a secret: They also often have a strong emotional attachment to their soon-to-be former homes.
They’ve made memories there, and probably have strong connections with people in and around the neighborhood. Buyers who can appeal to this emotional side of the transaction — reassuring the seller that they will sincerely treasure the home — may have an edge over buyers who simply approach with numbers.
Why These Work
When writing an offer letter it’s most important to be honest and transparent. Use personal language that appeals to the seller’s emotional attachment. Explain what your specific plans are for the home and try to reassure the sellers of your intentions.
Use any information you gain on visits to the home to address any concerns the seller may have, and be respectful of the memories they have made there. Check out the well written offer letter below.
Things to Consider
Before submitting your offer you’ll want to be sure you have all of your ducks in a row. Using emotional and descriptive language will set your offer letter apart, but ultimately the seller’s need to know the funds are there. You have to come in with a strong Pre-Approval letter. I recommend going through our process with the Diamond Approval, as it is the strongest letter you can get.
Also be sure that you are working with a great real estate agent, because this can make or break a transaction. To get a Diamond Approval or if you want to hear who we recommend to be your Real Estate agent reach out to me at (314) 472-DOUG (3684).
