Dear Mr. and Mrs. Seller:
As we present this offer, we'd like to thank you for considering us as buyers for your home. We have looked at
many houses, but none of them had the same feeling yours has. Along with meeting our needs as a large family, your home is filled with the love of 27 years. We all had the sensation that we were being "hugged" when we walked in. The children, who obviously don't understand the negotiation process, have all chosen their bedrooms already! We have, of course, told friends and family about your home, and they are keeping off of us in their prayers. For this reason, we feel confident that we can reach an agreement that everyone is comfortable with. No matter what the outcome, we are grateful to be considered as the possible next family to take residence in the warmth of your home.
Mr. and Mrs. Buyer
One of the best parts of handing a seller a letter like this at the time of presenting an offer, is that for most sellers they are curious about the prospective buyers. Most sellers want to like the buyers. I've seen offers that were not really what the sellers wanted but after reading a buyers letter felt an emotional attachement to the buyers and were much more willing to come to an agreement and more flexible throughout out the transaction process.
