10 Tips In Writing An Offer Letter For A Lakeland Fl Home For Sale (Part 2)
Even if you have established a good impression with the seller in person, your offer letter could either make or break the deal. Not sure what I'm talking about, then please read my article by clicking right here
Let’s continue with the other 5 tips for writing the perfect offer letter for that Lakeland Fl home you wish to buy:
6. Be Humble
Ask for the seller’s blessing on your offer. How you say it means a lot because the seller might interpret it in a different way. Saying “We will be honored to live in your beautiful home” will bring you further than “we are confident that you will accept our offer for your home.” Remember, the ball is in the sellers hands, and you should acknowledge that in your letter.
7. Don’t Vent It Out
Keep your letter positive and upbeat. It needs to put the seller in a good mood. The seller wouldn’t care how many other Lakeland Fl homes you have missed. The seller doesn’t really care if your rent just went up and they don’t want to know about your medical condition that makes it necessary for you to get a home like this. That will just make them feel uncomfortable and your offer might just end up at the bottom of the pile.
8. Have A Clear Closing
Close your letter with excitement and motivation. Recap your ability to purchase and close the sale at the end of your letter. Since the seller would most probably be reading several other offers, make your closing memorable and remind them of your best qualitites.
9. Sign with Sincere Appreciation
The offer letter is a business letter, therefore the signature lines “Best Regards,” “Sincerely,” or “Yours Truly” do not apply in an offer letter. You have to leave the seller with a positive feeling about you. Instead of using the typical closing signatures, you could thank the sellers for spending their time reading your offer letter. You can use phrases like “Thank you so much for your time,” “Your consideration is very much appreciated,” or “Thank you for the opportunity.” These words will give the sellers the feeling that you value their time and you are thankful for it.
One last tip: take extra care of your grammar and spelling. Some sellers may judge the buyers ability through the attention to detail they have put in the offer letter. If you are not confident about your grammar, spelling, and punctuation, then find someone good at it who can help. After your letter is done, go through it and read it again, check for mistakes, and try to make it as personal as possible to make it stand out. You will never know if one short misspelled word could have cost you that dream Lakeland Fl home that could have been yours had you taken the time to polish your offer letter.
