I recently had a multiple offer situation on a newly listed home in Olympia Fields. All parties knew there were other offers being presented. This letter arrived and I was asked to present it to the seller with the offer. The seller was so impressed with the buyer’s desire to personalize their offer and spent a lot of time talking about the buyers and their desire to own his home, then…the seller accepted their offer!
Years ago, before offers were faxed or emailed, the buyer’s agent actually sat down with the seller and the seller’s agent to present the buyer’s offer. The buyer’s agent was able to give additional background about the purchaser and appeal to the seller on a more emotional level.
The buyers, the Laynes family, did the same thing with their letter, they took action and demonstrated their desire and appreciation for the seller’s home. It worked and they are now living in their dream home.
