Should I send handwritten notes, if my handwriting is ugly?

Real Estate Technology with Zurple

Some of us have the life-ending handwriting of a medical professional. Does it make sense to learn calligraphy to impress a real estate client? Well --- my handwriting could use some work, but here is me writing this post by hand:

If you can't read that, I don't blame you. The 3 options you have for bad handwriting are:

1. Hire a service that handwrites notes for you.

There are services out there that will do this. Some of them even employ robots to "handwrite" custom messages of your choosing in bulk.


2. Make it a short note.

"Thank you for choosing me. Enjoy your new home!" should suffice.


3. Send a voice or video message

Pick up the phone! A video or voice greeting is equally as personal as a handwritten note. Send a video message through instagram or FB messenger. Or call them just to say thank you!


Personalization is everything to today's consumers. This is why they keep coming back to social media sites. Even with sites like amazon and netflix, the personalized recommendations bring them back. Zurple employs this strategy in our software as well, you can click here to learn more.


What do you think? Do you still do handwritten notes, even if your handwriting could use some work?

Good afternoon Zurples. Handwritten notes always matter to me. Your suggestions are good.

Your handwriting (printing, really) is readable, so yes, I would use it. As for the alternatives - a phone call is always nice, but a video not so much. Some, like me, use satellite Internet, so videos are more of a bother than anything else.

As for Facebook messenger - no thanks. To me, that's really impersonal. Plus, it can take a couple of days to be delivered.

Email is better than nothing, but the phone call or note are better.

Why not text? Seems just as personal and so much more affordable not only in delivery but time utilization too.
