How to Write a Love Letter to a Seller

How to Write a Love Letter to a Seller

“Do letters to sellers work?” YES! and no. 

Before writing one, figure out WHO owns the home. 

Individual? Family? Estate? Investor? Bank? These letters don’t help much with investors (flip houses) or banks but they can tip the scales in your favor with the other groups. 

Here are my tips...
Be genuine: The number of copy & paste, prewritten, general letters I've collected for my sellers over the years is alarming. Sometimes, I'm not even sure if the buyers viewed the house at all. If you don't put emotion in, you won't get emotion out.

Introduce yourself: Tell the seller about you, your family, even your dog. Many sellers like the idea of passing the home on to someone who they connect with and feel will take care of it the way they did.

Get Specific: Adding things like “...we’ve always dreamed of living in a white 2 story home, just like yours…” or “the huge; ...

5 Easy Remodels to Give Your Home an Instant Facelift

By: Paul Wolfert - "The Move-Up Expert"

Whether you're looking to sell right now or merely thinking about the future, improving your home's value with an easy, inexpensive remodel is a great way to ensure a quicker sale.
It's easy to get in over your head while remodeling, so make sure you do your research before you get started. Here are five easy remodels that will give your home an instant facelift.
