—Some buyers are solving housing woes with prose.
They’re not writing poems or romantic novels — just short notes to sellers, telling them how happy they’d be to buy their homes.
The simple gesture is paying off in today’s market, where inventory is tight and bidding wars are typical.
“Money talks, but a letter gives a human element to an offer. Sellers want to sell to a buyer who they’re comfortable with and can relate to.” – Eric Zavala, Realtor with Century 21 Award Chino Hills, CA.
Cynthia Kelley fell in love with a four-bedroom home in Chino Hills, CA., as soon as she saw the “doggy doors” and the big backyard.
But four other buyers also wanted the home. So her agent suggested she write a letter, explaining to the seller how much the home would mean to her.
“I have three golden retrievers myself and know they would be in heaven with all that fabulous space to run and play,” she wrote.
When you hire an awesome agent like myself, I make sure we write the perfect letter for every offer we submit. This shows our commitment and proof that we are a strong candidate for any home.
