Now that summer is here, and lots of buyers are out searching for their new Windsor home, multiple offers can happen. What if you have your hopes on a property yet you know that others are going to make offers as well? How can your bid stand out? What about an old-fashioned love letter?
Before emails overtook our world, remember how handwriting a note was common practice? There is something to be said about receiving a personal letter that stands out and is remembered. So today, more and more buyers are writing notes to let owners know how much they love their home in an effort to get the edge over their competition.
What should a buyer include in such a letter when trying to buy a Windsor home? It should clearly state how much you like the home, how properly cared for it is, what special features you like and how you can imagine settling in and creating a nice life for you and your family. Also, you may want to include the following:
How long you have been looking.
A little information about you and your family, including the names and ages of your children. If the seller has raised a family in the Windsor home and are now downsizing, you may want to say that you want to follow the tradition of creating a happy home for your family.
Anything that you may have in common with the seller.
How you will lovingly care for the home.
Most real estate agents agree that such a letter cannot hurt. Keep it short and sweet but don’t go too crazy with the compliments are sellers may think that you are not being sincere.
Of course, there are no guarantees, but you if you don’t try, then you will never know.
