One Way to Secure the Home You Want

If you’re a buyer in today’s market there are many home options available. However, when you do find the home you’ve been looking for how do you go about making sure your offer is accepted? One somewhat unconventional manner that has seen growing popularity is to appeal directly to the seller, often in the form of a letter. This can be particularly effective when a home has multiple bids or your offer has some unusual circumstances that preclude you from being overly aggressive.

While every seller is concerned with getting the best value they can for their home, most homeowners do have a personal attachment to the home their selling and would like the incoming purchaser to care for it as deeply as they do. Writing a letter detailing your specific circumstances and investment in that particular home can definitely pay dividends in a seller’s decision. Now, of course if this unconventional method is used it is extremely important that all statements are made with complete honesty. While definitely not the normal approach, this direct appeal to a seller could make the difference in securing the home of your dreams.
